The CFE Fund and the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis partnered to create the Bank On National Data (BOND) Hub, which aggregates national Bank On account activity related to account openings, usage and consistency, and online access.

Further, 80% of Bank On accounts opened in 2021 were opened by customers who were new to the financial institution, demonstrating that Bank On accounts are bringing new customers into financial institutions and the financial mainstream.
