Airfox’s mobile bank banQi named Best Mobile App in Brazil

World Finance Magazine has selected Airfox’s mobile banking solution banQi as the Best Consumer Bank and Best Mobile App in Brazil. The award recognizes Airfox’s success in creating a solution that disrupts the banking system in Brazil.

World Finance honors the top companies in many categories, including digital banking.

The Digital Banking Awards highlight the most innovative and top-performing digital banks from countries around the world. Emphasizing significant market disruption and the company’s ability to meet the needs and demands of the “modern customer,” the 2019 nomination pool included companies of all sizes poised to penetrate markets and fill the gaps in the traditional banking system.

Airfox was selected as the 2019 Best Mobile App in Brazil, as well as the Best Consumer Digital Bank, topping off a big year for Airfox. Our digital banking app banQi launched in June of 2019 and ever since, Airfox has been innovating, expanding, and establishing major partnerships with companies around the world in addition to those we already have.

Award winners are selected over the course of the calendar year and then announced at the start of the following year. Previous Best Mobile App Award winners in Brazil include digital bank Nubank.

The selection process

The World Finance Awards have been honoring achievements and innovative work in the industry since 2007. The selection of the best in each category is done carefully to account for company successes and impact relative to the size of the team and the financial status of the digital bank.

World Finance works diligently to maintain a fair selection process that considers expert opinions along with the voice of those actually using a business’s product.

The panel of judges have over 230 years of financial and business journalism experience combined along with diverse industry expertise. The judges also rely on input from the journal’s readers and feedback from the nominees’ clients and users. World Finance recently added new award categories based on reader suggestions, ensuring the yearly awards provide reliable consumer recommendations.
