LAUNCH OF CONNECTED MONEY APP

HSBC UK has launched Connected Money - the first app from a UK bank that allows customers to see their accounts on one screen.

The app allows users to see not only their UK current account but online savings accounts, mortgages, loans and cards held across a number of banks, including non HSBC accounts, in one app.

The technology is now publically available to all HSBC UK current account customers using iOS 10 and above via the App Store.

Becky Moffat (pictured), HSBC UK Head of Personal Banking and Advance, said: “Our customers live busy lives and bank in a variety of ways. We want to help them to manage their money more easily.

“Having access to one app that shares insights across a customer’s UK current accounts, mortgages, credit cards, savings and loans saves time by not having to individually log into each account and provides a clear view of their financial position. From testing this technology with customers we found that it gave them a sense of better control and financial confidence,” she added.

HSBC UK, the overall sponsor of Birmingham Press Club, will later this year officially open its new headquarters building in the city. It serves around 14.5 million customers in the UK.
