RBC says it’s connected to 3.2 million Canadians through its venture apps

RBC says that it has ties with 3.2 million Canadians through its digital app-building efforts, as reported by the Financial Times.

The bank’s CEO, Dave McKay, says that RBC will work to convert the users into banking customers. It launched its RBC Ventures subsidiary in 2018 to obtain five million users for its apps in five years.

For instance, one of the apps is called ‘Arrive’ and is designed to give newcomers in Canada 24/7 personalized guidance during their move.

Another app called ‘Butter’ is designed to help users organize their memberships and subscriptions while earning cash rewards. There are more than a dozen other apps that are a part of RBC Ventures.

RBC wants to convert at least 10 percent of the 3.2 million users into banking clients. McKay said that around 50,000 have already converted into customers of the bank. However, he said that this was part of a pilot phase that was not backed with any sort of marketing.

McKay says that another 14 ventures are currently being developed, which will lead to a total of 31.
