I’ve been saying this in a number of comments recently, so thought I’d sling a new topic and see if others agree and will vote for it.
I know that Monzo had a visible Product Roadmap (in Trello?) in the past, but I don’t think we need that level of visibility, a simple infographic/list that shows which features are being built:

Publish this on a regular basis (quarterly/monthly) and just make sure that the only things that disappear are the ones that have been built (they can circle back into this list if you are enhancing them) because we all know that someone will spot if a feature suddenly disappears from the lists without being announced.
