Our take on Monzo

Monzo is an app-based challenger bank headquartered in London. By the third quarter of 2022, the bank boasted more than six million customers. Monzo doesn’t invest in fossil-fuel-based energy companies, but it does offer savings accounts via third-party banks that do invest in fossil fuels. So while we do recommend Monzo as a "safe" option, we do not recommend use of their savings accounts.
