Monese is Building a Strong Digital Bank to Compete

Monese originally launched as a digital bank focused on migrants moving across Europe who could not access the traditional banking system; the startup has recently adapted to provide an offering that they believe will help it to rival competitors like Revolut or Monzo; the recent partnership with Avios helps position Monese to serve a fast growing segment of the population; Avios is a loyalty points program for airlines, and hundreds of other brands; Monese customers will now get exclusive offers for Avios points as Monese CEO Norris Koppel tells AltFi, “We serve a fast-growing and incredibly international audience who travel the world for study, work, family, or retirement.” Source.
