Things we’re celebrating 

We’re growing faster and we couldn’t do it without you.

Thanks to over 110,000 of you who have opened investment accounts with us so far, we’ve become one of the fastest growing investment platforms in UK history. We want to make our app as helpful as possible and to do this, we recently accepted a £14m investment, led by venture capital firm Eight Roads. We’re incredibly excited about the tools and features we have in store for you in the next few months.

  • Our name in lights. Apple featured us in the App Store’s Shake Up Your Monday. If you also appreciate what we are doing, don’t forget to spread the word and tell your friends about saving and investing with Moneybox.
  • More Lifetime ISA bonuses!  Our Lifetime ISA customers have received over £1.6m of government bonus money in the last four months. Keep it up! Remember you’ll receive a 25% bonus on savings up to £4,000 per year. Don’t forget there is a 25% government charge if you withdraw money for any reason other than buying your first home (up to £450,000 in value) or for your retirement when you reach 60.
