Be a Champion, not a Challenger: We’re a champion of the people. We stand for the little guy, the overlooked, the ripped-off and abused. We’re here to make a difference to people's lives, not to challenge other companies.
Be Excellent to Each Other: This is us to the core. It means, do what's right for all parties involved, even if it’s hard to achieve.
Stand for Something: We’re the rebels with a cause. We’ve been ripped off by banks long enough. Now is the time to fight back, to unite, to create new services which are fairer, cheaper and easier to use.
Community First: This is at the heart of everything we do. We unite people and solve their problems as a collective allowing them to better understand their finances and get out of debt and invest their savings in other members so that everyone prospers.
