Asia Pacific, 23 April 2024 – Mox Bank Limited (“Mox”) has been recognised by global management consulting firm Oliver Wyman as one of the fastest-growing digital banks in the world. This distinction highlights Mox's remarkable growth trajectory and commitment to innovative product offerings. Oliver Wyman's analysis emphasises Mox's speed to market with launching a wider range of products and services compared to other globally renowned digital banks after setting up for the first three years. This robust portfolio and focus on innovation have been pivotal to Mox's impressive performance throughout the APAC region.

Our focus isn't solely on speed; it's about understanding the dynamic needs of the Hong Kong market and delivering solutions with unmatched agility. We're proud of our rapid growth, but even more so of our unwavering commitment to putting our customers' evolving needs first."

In just three years, Mox has developed itself as a full digital bank with a broad array of product spectrum spanning across deposits, foreign exchange, payments, personal financial management, cards, lending, investments covering equity and fund trading. It is actively pursuing its aspiration to become the main bank for customers and meet their diverse banking needs. For a bank just three years old, close to 30% of Mox’s customer base has four or more products with the bank and one of the highest transaction volume per card in Hong Kong.

Since its launch in 2020, Mox has gained numerous local, regional, and global recognition as a leader in digital banking¹. In addition, Mox’s tech stack and processes have been successfully ported to Trust Bank in Singapore, accelerating Trust Bank to be the first digital bank launched.

Mox has made significant progress. It holds Hong Kong's seventh largest credit cards book among all retail banks in the city² and has accumulated more than 550,000 customers, representing more than 10% of bankable population in Hong Kong. Around one in five people under the age of 40 in Hong Kong are Mox customers.
