They also introduced localized offerings like Bizum in Spain, iDEAL in the Netherlands, and local French IBANs, enhancing N26’s global presence.

Under BianRosa’s guidance, N26 made notable strides in improving the scalability of its platform. Automation, intelligent Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) solutions, and data-based fraud prevention models were implemented, fortifying the bank’s commitment to security and efficiency.
