Urban FT combines social feed, expenditure control and others banking services in one single app


To Richard Steggall, CEO and co-founder of Urban FT, simple banking isn't enough. Together with Mark Kilpatrick and Kase Kaplan​, he plans on increasing the appeal of financial institutions by combining well-known banking offers such as real-time balance overview and online transfers to a social component. 

Available to banks and financial institutions, Urban FT offers one stop for managing multiple accounts, a social feed and the much interesting option of automatically splitting bills among peers. The visual interface eases operation and promises to keep account holders coming back to the platform and mobile app.​
