Monzo considers relaunching paid products

Monzo is looking to relaunch premium services to drive profitability.

In Brief:

  • Monzo will hire up to 500 people this year and forecasts 5.5mn new users.

  • This follows a launch in the US and a recent valuation of £2bn.

  • The news has been reported by Reuters following a conversation with CEO Tom Blomfield.
