Estimated customer growth of Revolut and N26 2018-2020

This statistic illustrates a forecasted growth rate of online only banks Revolut and N26 based on their reported monthly new customers. If both companies continue their current trends in new customers, they will see a combined total of over 14 million customers by December 2020. As both companies are expecting to continue expansion into new countries for operation, the actual customer numbers are likely to exceed the figures displayed here. Revolut and N26 currently are the best performing disruptor banks in Europe in terms of customer numbers.

Outperforming the forecast

In February 2018, the London based company Revolut announced that they had hit 1.5 million customers, a figure that had grown to 3 million by November 14th, 2018. The incredible acceleration of new customers joining these online-only banks has been mirrored by the Berlin (Germany) based N26 who have seen their customer base double between June 2018 and December 2018. The current number of customers at Revolut and N26 has outperformed estimations.


The founder and CEO of N26 Valentin Stalf announced that the company’s Series D funding it acquired would be used to increase customer numbers to 5 million by the beginning of 2020. The extended round in funding in July 2019 has meant that the Berlin based disruptor has become the most funded online bank in Europe. The speed in which fintech firms and disruptor banks have risen has seen several them reach Unicorn status.
