Moneyfacts has been at the heart of the financial world for over 30 years, and today, we’re pleased to announce the launch of our brand new website.

The new and improved Moneyfacts.co.uk is now open for business, offering our trademark impartial, accurate and comprehensive comparison charts in a whole new way.

We’ve worked hard to create a site that fulfils our purpose of helping consumers find the products they need quickly and simply, allowing for easy comparisons with all the necessary information readily available. Whether they’re looking for a savings account, mortgage, loan or anything else in our repertoire, the sleek design of our new site makes it easy to find the financial information needed in just a few clicks, and of course, we still have all the latest news and informative guides to complete the package.

The cash ISA market has enjoyed something of a resurgence recently, with data from the latest Moneyfacts UK Savings Trends Treasury Report showing that not only have product numbers risen since the Personal Savings Allowance (PSA) was introduced in 2016, but consumer demand for cash ISAs is on the rise, suggesting that savers are looking to future-proof their funds to benefit from tax-efficiency for the long term.

Retirement may be the time that many people long for, but it can also be a risky undertaking, with various potential threats blocking your path to a stress-free post-work life. So just what are the risks you need to be aware of, and how can you avoid them? We take a look at a few things you need to bear in mind.

The reward credit card sector has been hit hard in recent years, largely the result of the EU interchange cap ruling in 2015 that limited the amount card providers could charge businesses for accepting card payments, which saw many providers cut their rewards in an attempt to remain profitable. However, our latest analysis of the market shows tentative signs of competition returning to the sector, with several providers improving their reward offerings in recent weeks.

The situation affecting Metro Bank at present has left many customers worried about the safety of their money, but what's actually going on, and is there really cause for concern? We take a look.
