Alluded to on First Dates by Melinda Messenger actually…

Didn’t get a glowing review due to competitive interest rates.

Interesting article here about Monzo APIs and the marketplace (and compliments on / differences to the Starling approach):

Tom in the Telegraph talking about loans for the less advantaged:

Being discussed in the loans thread:

On high cost loans, i would like to see an option for savers to choose for their savings to fund the riskier loans with potentially a much better return. I’ve always though there was a gap for a socially responsible lending firm who could make good returns and much lower interest rates than the traditional payday loans companies where it was people choosing to take the lending risk. Almost like Betfair for loans.

I think that Chip is looking at this as a next iteration of their product. It’s also the same principle behind Zopa and Ratesetter (more or less).

Interesting idea to focus more on the socially responsible angle though…

Martin Lewis just mentioned Monzo gambling block on ITV1 money show.

Not sure warrants own thread but that’s a great thing to get spoke about on prime time!

Just before the paywall says Monzo has security guards do they really need this?

Any office building in central London has some form of security, surely? :man_shrugging:

Chip-X is very similar to other P2P platforms mentioned above in many ways. The main difference, however, is that it has access to account history (only available to chip savers) and can be more selective of applications based on that data.

In addition, the money lent to users will come from chip savings accounts, with the majority of any interest going back to the lenders (with a small fee for chip obviously)!

Let’s hope that chip and Monzo users can soon be at one (promised Q1 2019)!:sunglasses:
