Keep track of your spending with Spending Insights

What is Spending Insights?

Ever wondered much you actually spend on morning coffees? Spending Insights breaks your outgoings down by category (groceries, holidays, transport) or merchant (Boots, Amazon, Tesco) so you can get a totally clear picture of where your money really goes each month. We believe understanding how you spend is the first step to financial freedom, and as our customers will testify – Spending Insights will help you get there.


Spending Insights gives you a sneak peek into the inner workings of your own financial life.

  • Your spending, in the spotlight.
    Get a top-line total of what you’ve spent so far that month (or what’s incoming) then view a detailed breakdown of where it went by category or merchant. Want to compare to last month? Just tap across.
  • Customisable transactions.
    Personalise and keep track of your transactions more easily by attaching notes, receipts or photos to them. Want to choose a different category to the one we’ve chosen? No problem – you can choose your own by tapping its icon.
  • Split bills.
    Been out for drinks or dinner with friends and picked up the bill? Select the transaction in the feed and split the bill by the number of people or amount. No need to share bank details, just send them a message with the Settle Up request.

How it works

Just toggle between category or merchant to view either, or tap on individual transactions to view their specific details or split bills retroactively.

You can even scroll back to previous months if you feel like comparing month-on-month.
