Getting Started with Money Insights 365

Money Insights 365 (Mi 365) is a new tool designed to help you take control of your money now and into the future. Mi 365 helps you improve your financial wellbeing by giving you personalised insights about your spending.

Accessible through the Mobile Banking app, Mi 365 is available to personal customers only on their current account and credit cards1. It is not available to business customers or UK customers with Basic Cash accounts or personal credit cards.

What exactly is Mi 365

Mi 365 gives you regular information – called insights2 – about what’s happening with your money, so you can get a better idea of how to make it work harder for you.

The insights will highlight things like, how much of your spending is going on rent or groceries compared to what you’ve spent on clothes shopping or nights out, making it really easy to see how you could manage things better.

As well as spending insights, Mi 365 will help you stay on top of your accounts, bills and subscriptions so you always know where you stand.

For example, it will let you know things like:

  • You’ve just been paid
  • You’ve just received a refund from a retailer
  • You’re spending more than usual this month on a specific category
  • Your subscription costs have increased
  • Your cash flow this month is lower or higher than usual

  • Over 40 insights ranging from subscription information, to cash flow management and transaction tracking
  • Recategorizing your spend by clicking on the transaction
  • View money in or money out by category
