"Sorry, my sarcasm meter must be broken. In what way is it obvious that a banking app requires access to one's contacts list? My business with my bank is managing my money, not my dealings with others."

I would expect it's do to with PAYM:

I'm with NatWest and when I use PAYM, my contacts appear within the app so I can select the person I want to send money to.

I can't see how this could work securely unless the banking app could access my contacts.
