A mobile app launched by Indian American banker Jay Sidhu and his daughter Luvleen can revolutionise the global banking industry into completely phone-app based banking system, a media report said.
Jay Sidhu, chairman and CEO of Customers Bank, and his daughter Luvleen Sidhu, the bank’s chief strategy and marketing officer, presented details of their app called BankMobile at an event of Greater Reading Chamber of Commerce and Industry in downtown Reading this week, wfmz.com reported.
According to the duo, their app puts everything customers need from a bank at their fingertips. BankMobile is America’s first and only absolutely no fee, mobile, online and tablet bank
Tapping into the technologies that enable experience like shopping online or using transportation apps like Uber, the app promises that users can open a free account, deposit checks, pay bills, send money to friends and receive financial advice in minutes.
Financial literacy and empowerment have been the core drivers of BankMobile and I look forward to further building an effortless and fun bank that our customers will continue to love!”, stated Luvleen Sidhu.
Sidhu, who holds bachelor’s in management degree from Banaras Hindu University and an MBA from Wilkes University, is credited with turning Boston-based Sovereign Bank into a multi-billion dollar company. He teamed up with her Harvard-educated daughter to come up with the app.
