Awarded Best Challenger-Bank at the European Fintech Awards 2016
Monese was founded with the ambitious goal of building a mobile only, instant-open current account for the on-demand age.
With the Monese app, customers from all over Europe can open a UK current account in as little as 120 seconds, without the credit checks or residency restrictions imposed by traditional banks.
Monese was the first 100% mobile current account service to launch in the UK, in September 2015.
Customers moved over £100 million with Monese in the first year!
Not only did we want to make opening and using an account as easy as ordering an Uber, we also wanted to ensure it was accessible to everyone and not just a select few with perfect credit scores and several month’s worth of utility bill documentation.
Fast forward to the present day and we have opened tens of thousands of mobile only, on-demand current accounts for customers all over the UK and the wider EU, we’ve been officially named ‘Best Challenger-Bank' in Europe and have even been awarded €1.1 million by the European Commission for research and innovation!
We’re also incredibly proud that the product we’ve created is improving the lives of so many customers that legacy banks fail to serve.
