2011 State of Online and Mobile Banking
In 2011, online and mobile banking in the U.S. experienced substantial growth as adoption of these channels grew alongside investments made by financial institutions to develop their presence on these digital platforms. Online banking volumes across the top 10 banks grew to more than 65 million liquid deposit account (LDA) customers, which include users of checking, savings, and money market accounts (excluding certificates of deposit).
