What is MoneyWatch?

MoneyWatch is a free service available to members with a current account who use our Internet Bank and/or Banking app.

It enables you to track your money month-by-month and builds up a picture of what you’re spending in your current account. It can also alert you if big bills are coming in, or if something out-of-the-ordinary happens in your current account.

These are just some of the things MoneyWatch can tell you:


What money you’ve got coming in
Everything is broken down in bite-sized chunks so it’s easy to understand

When large payments are due
It can also warn you about any unusual or unexpected payments

When funds in your account are running low
Helping you to avoid any charges for going overdrawn

How much you’ve spent on an overseas holiday
With a helpful overview to go through once you’re home

You can also influence what you see, so you can easily get to the MoneyWatch features that are most important to you.
