With millions of new customers and diverse product offerings, the funding will fuel Monzo’s product roadmap, aiming to become the primary app for managing customers’ entire financial lives.

TS Anil, CEO of Monzo, says, “We’ve built incredible momentum in the business over the past few years which has led to us reaching more than 9 million customers, turning profitable and launching even more ground-breaking products.”

“With backing from global investors, we have the rocket fuel to go after our ambitions harder and faster, building Monzo into the one app that sits at the centre of our customers’ financial lives.”

“Each milestone we’ve reached to this point has given us more strength and speed to make strides towards our mission – now we’ll scale to even greater heights and seize the huge opportunity ahead.”
