Blimey. When I was the subject, my first thought was someone was having a wind-up. But now I think about it, would make sense that having a unicorn gets you some reward.

Well done, Tom! A clear validation that Monzo is doing something right, and hopefully a good sign for the future.

Think you have to be more formal than that now :grin:

That’s an impressive achievement in such a short time. Some spend their working lives in an industry and get an MBE. To get an OBE this quickly is a serious recognition.
