Moneybox 2019 Round Up
As part of our community of more than our 320,000 users, we’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you for saving and investing with Moneybox in 2019.
This year we’ve been working hard to build new features and products that help you save and invest for you future. Here are some of our 2019 highlights…
Launched at the beginning of the year, the Moneybox Personal Pension has enabled you to bring together your old, stranded pension pots. We are determined to build a pension that is designed for the way we live today, and we’ve already helped consolidate thousands of pension pots, with staggering values found. Shoutout to Lee who found a pot from 10 years ago worth £27,000! 👏
We are currently working on the next phase of our pension product – contributions. Paying into your personal pension is a great way to build your retirement pot, while benefiting from tax advantages. We know many of you have been asking for this feature and we’re happy to say pension contributions will be live in the new year.
Socially Responsible Investing
In May we were proud to introduce one of our most popular new feature requests – Socially Responsible investing, giving you the choice to invest in a fund that uses environmental, social and governance (ESG) scoring. 🌍
Cash Lifetime ISA
July saw us launch our market-leading Cash Lifetime ISA, helping first time buyers boost their savings with a top rate and a fantastic government bonus. We’re thrilled to say, in 2019 our Lifetime ISA customers have purchased over £152 million worth of property! Congratulations to all our first home buyers – what an achievement. 🍾
Notice Savings Account
During August we introduced our first savings account – the 95 Day Notice Account. This product was built as a result of your feedback and we’re now helping thousands of you save for your shorter term goals with a great interest rate! 💷
Big news came in October when, for the first time, we gave you the opportunity to become a Moneybox Shareholder by transferring one or more of your old pensions to us. It’s exciting to know our that some of you now own part of the company and are excited to bring you even closer to our journey. We’d love everyone to have access to Moneybox shares in the future and are currently looking at ways to make this possible. We’ll be sure to keep you informed of any updates. 🚀
Our New Look
We finished the year off with one of our biggest projects to date, revealing our new and improved brand identity. We updated over 500 app screens and 600 images to make our app even more beautiful and enjoyable for you to use. Thank you to everyone who helped us test our new look app and supported the launch. The feedback we received was so positive and is helping us refine the app for future releases. 📲
