Nowadays, there’s a good chance you do the majority of your banking from your phone… But while you’re familiar with online banking, digital banking is a new horizon you may want to learn about. 

Online Banking  

To make sure we’re on the same page, let’s briefly explore the details of online banking. 

It can be defined as any form of personal banking conducted on the internet – from checking previous statements to setting up direct debits, paying bills, transferring money, to simply checking your balance as an individual.  

Digital Banking 

Digital banking is more encompassing. It refers to all forms of financial transactions conducted with technology. Therefore, one could say that online banking is a form of digital banking. 

Another key distinction is the fact that online banking is a service offered by brick-and-mortar institutions, meaning that opening an account typically requires travelling to your closest branch at some point or another. By contrast, digital banks have no physical location and can operate all their financial services through your phone.  

Alpian goes even further and unifies everyday banking with accessible investment and private banking services in a hassle-free mobile app so that your financial life fits comfortably in the palm of your hand.  

Alpian has partnered with REYL Intesa Sanpaolo, the Swiss banking group owned by Fideuram – Intesa Sanpaolo Private Banking. This partnership positions Alpian as Switzerland’s first Digital Private Bank.
