Ben Stanway, co-founder of Moneybox said: “We're thrilled to have completed our first-ever crowd raise, giving our amazing community the chance to be a part of our journey and help us become one of the largest saving and investing platforms in the UK. Securing this funding enables us to continue to build the products, tools and technology to help people achieve their goals easily - whether it’s buying a house, saving for retirement or just a rainy day. We’re blown away by the positive response to the campaign, and are very excited to have our over 16,000 new shareholders on board as we continue to execute our mission of helping everyone save and invest for the future. Giving our community the chance to own part of the company has always been in our plan, so we are excited the day has finally arrived.”

Moneybox will use the funds to supercharge its growth by continuing to build the tools, technology and products to further execute its mission to help everyone save and invest for their future. The raise with Crowdcube follows the recent announcement of the company reaching £1bn in assets, and securing £30 million from professional investors in a Series C funding round.
