Are Monzo Independent?


(Trevor) #1

Hi, Thank you for adding me to the Monzo community!

I have a question, I don’t claim to be knowledgeable regards banks and commerce but can I ask one thing, I have been using Revolut and have recently found that they use Barclays to hold clients money. Do Monzo use a high street bank to hold clients money in current and or future banking?

Many thanks

At present they have been running a prepaid card scheme thru Wirecard as a test prior to launching the full current accounts. When the current accounts are launched later this year your money will be held by Monzo Bank and not by any other company

Hi Trevor, welcome to the community :slight_smile:

Monzo use a supplier called Wirecard who store our (users) funds in their accounts at the moment. You can see more details about that on Monzo’s T’s & C’s page.

But now that they have a full banking license, they will be able to hold our deposits themselves soon (in the Bank of England’s accounts, to be precise), when the current accounts launch.

Monzo aren’t owned by other banks. Their business has been funded by investments from venture capitalists, crowdfunding & independent investors -
