(Ecofin Agency) - The French group Banque populaire Caisse d'épargne (BPCE) is preparing to launch a digital bank, in Algeria, via its subsidiary Natixis Algeria. The information was given last April 6 on cBanque.

This new bank will be elaborated on the model of Fidor Bank, bought in July 2016 by the French group. It will namely include a mobile banking service and a community platform on which Internet users can discuss their different banking issues. According to information collected by cBanque, BCPE’s mobile bank in Algeria should allow account opening via video conference.
