Modern Banking – What Is The Future of Banking?

By Grace Kilander

Long teller lines and waiting for your check to clear to get cash is old news.  We all need our banking done fast and conveniently. 

2020 has been the year of uncertainty, drastic change, and adaptation. Traditional banks had to pivot their practices faster than you could define what NSF fees are. Standing in a long line for a teller to cash your paper check is so 2012.  Although change is typically uncomfortable, most people are settling right into the new wave of modern banking and the future of banking.

What Is Modern Banking?

When you’re looking for a bank to handle all your financial needs, a secure advanced technology one stop shop is what people want. A RoarMoney bank account from MoneyLion has all the bells and whistles. Virtual debit card, contactless physical debit card, instant 0% cash advances, price protection, top-notch security, rewards program and plenty more! 

User-Friendly Interface

The MoneyLion mobile banking app covers all the bases, and that’s why we’re one of the Forbes Fintech 50 in 2020. You see, not only is our app visually pleasing, but it’s easy to navigate. With a few swipes, you can track your budget, monitor credit, find education resources and invest. The more you use the mobile app, link your financial accounts, work on your goals– your Financial Heartbeat will increase. 

This feature is intended to help you measure, monitor and improve your overall financial health in a fun and encouraging way. To view your Financial Heartbeart, swipe through all the tabs on your mobile banking app, right past the trivia tab.

Virtual Lending

Online banking is the future, and MoneyLion is keeping up with the times. Most of, if not all, banking needs can be done right from your phone. Need a loan? No need to step foot into a bank branch, you can apply and qualify within a few minutes on your MoneyLion app. 

Our Credit Builder loans are perfect for someone with a poor or no credit score. All you need to do is link your primary bank account to be reviewed for healthy financial habits. You could qualify for a competitive interest rate loan up to $1000 and receive some of your loan funds that same day (with the rest saved in reserves for you until you pay off your loan). Loans are paid back over the course of 12 months, making payments more affordable.  

Bonus: We help build your credit by reporting your payments to all 3 credit bureaus. Just make sure you make payments on time and in full. Log into the mobile app to apply today!
