Simon Rabin has commented on this latest round of funding, commenting that “We’ve been blown away by the response to our latest crowdfunding campaign. This is a huge validation of the strong position Chip is in, and our ambitions to build the next FinTech unicorn.”

“We have massive plans for the next 12 months. From a product perspective, we’re looking at more market-leading savings accounts, more investment funds, and more automatic investing. We also have aggressive growth plans, across several marketing channels, as we aim to increase our user base further.

“It’s safe to say this is extraordinary, we’re very excited about all the incredible features we’re going to deliver, the growth this round is going to fuel, and having even more shareholders and users on board for the next stage of our journey.

“We’re building the best savings account in the world, and we’ve only just begun.”
