What we've done already, and what we're going to do next.
After a strong 2020/21 which saw us increase deposits by 548%, bring in hundreds of thousands of new users, and launch the market's best easy access savings rate, we're not slowing down with lots of new exciting things in the pipeline.
We’ve already shipped many new features and improvements so far this year! See what great work our team has put together.
We are always working hard to negotiate with banks to bring you the best savings rates and put market leading returns in the palm of your hand. In September 2021 we launched the UK's best rate on easy access savings. Read more here.
You can now autosave into multiple savings accounts, so you can make sure you're automatically building savings in the account with the best rates.
We launched our returns engine, ChipX, which enables you to level up your savings with our full suite of investment funds.
As part of our work on ChipX and investment funds wrappers that enable the returns on savings and investments to be exempt from tax.
We offer a number of funds with different risk profiles where our saves can easily invest at the tap of a button.
We said goodbye to our old e-wallets and replaced them with savings accounts powered by UK authorised banks, where money is eligible for the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
We've just added a new payment provider which makes it much more efficient for us to move your money in and out of Chip, and also opens the potential for new exciting features, like a G-pay integration.
You can now find full statements in Chip that you can download as a PDF and keep for your records.

How we work
"At Chip we use an agile and iterative approach to deliver new products for our users. We listen to our users' feedback, monitor and analyse the fintech market and observe how users interact with the app to help us identify new products and opportunities to further satisfy our customers needs.
"Our cross functional teams, composed of designers, developers, marketeers etc... come together to build, test and release these new exciting products as quickly as possible.
"This approach is super important because it enables us to go to market with new products rapidly and get as much feedback as possible from our users. We then use this feedback to iterate the initial product accordingly to refine it to exactly what our users want and need."
