Starling reaches 3m user milestone

Starling Bank has passed the three million current account customer mark.

The milestone, which also accounts for more than 460,000 small business accounts, comes five years after the challenger bank launched its personal current accounts in 2017.

Helen Bierton, chief banking officer at Starling Bank, said: “Starling has proven that technology can transform the banking experience and we’ve attracted millions of customers as a result.

“Our technology platform was built to scale, so as we continue to launch industry-first products and features, we’re ready to onboard many more customers - and at pace.”

The announcement follows Starling's recent roll out of new spending categories which the bank hopes will help its customers to track their spending more effectively throughout the cost-of-living crisis.

In alignment with the bank's growth strategy, Starling also recently doubled the employee headcount in its Cardiff office.
