One of the many perks of working in the team of FinTech Insights, is taking a look at banks from all over the world. More than that, our team of analysts always unsurface new diamonds in the rough – neobanks! 

Apart from discovering new, up and coming challenger banks, we also have the perks of analysing them, which means acting as their customers, documenting every single feature they offer, as well as analysing exactly how they offer it. 

And since we really enjoying discovering new fintechs, and get excited over all the new debit cards that will be arriving, we thought it would be a great idea to compile all these neobanks, that we think deserve a lot more traction and talk than what they have been getting, and showcasing them along with the reasons we think why you should give them a try!

Let’s start with the first bank we came across and fell in love with: BlackCatCard. 

This neobank is centered around a black cat as their main logo and aesthetic.

They follow this pattern, of the black cat, in their UI implementation at various parts inside their banking. For example, we came across a black cat strolling through our screens while navigating in the application or playing with a ball of yarn!
