Women are catching men in online banking

While men are still more likely to bank online than women, the gap is closing rapidly, according to a Mori poll for Nationwide.

Since December 2000, around 1m women have begun banking online, compared to 600,000 men. Around 3m men now bank online, compared to round 2m women, while 13.5 per cent of all current account holders are banking online, the survey says.

Nationwide e-commerce director Jim Willens says: “The internet has become a mainstream activity and so it&#39s not surprising that more women, as well as men, are making use of it.”
