Orange Bank starts 2019 with 200,000 customers

Wednesday 23 January 2019 | 11:27 CET | News
Orange Bank has a French customer base of just over 200,000 accounts, reports Les Echos. This is well behind the company's commercial target of 400,000 set for its first year of operation. After the launch of the service in November 2017, the customer acquisition strategy has evolved, with a greater reliance on Orange retail stores to accelerate sign-ups. Orange Bank CEO Paul de Leusse told Les Echos that 65 percent of accounts are opened in an Orange retail store, with the remaining 35 percent via the online channel.
