The online bank added 5.5 million customers to hit the 100 million mark in its first quarter. Still, CEO Velez said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” today:

Customer growth continues to be strong at Nu Holdings primarily because it’s “delivering a product that is higher quality at a lower cost, as per the chief executive. 

In fact, the financial technology company has a more than 80% cost structure advantage over an average U.S. bank, he added in his interview with CNBC on Wednesday. 

The cost structure advantage is huge. That cost structure advantage should also exist in markets like the United States and eventually will be really important for us to compete.

Nubank lifted its gross profit margin by some 300 basis points to 43.2% in Q1. Wall Street currently has a consensus “overweight” rating on Nu Holdings stock.
