The expertise of the Moneyfacts team is regularly in demand with journalists and media outlets across the financial services and national spectrum. Here's a quick overview of some of the places we've been in the news recently:

  • The Telegraph remains impressed by the introduction of Marcus by Goldman Sachs into the UK savings market, reporting on Moneyfacts' finding that despite their market-leading leap into the charts, the average easy access rate has only risen by 0.04%.
  • Moneyfacts figures also featured in The Times, which ran an article on home loan perks that made good use of Moneyfacts' vast mortgage data.
  • Meanwhile, the Metro is looking ahead past Christmas to the possible financial hangovers that might await us if we're not careful. They quoted finance expert Charlotte Nelson's suggestion to get credit savvy and included her top picks for cashback and reward credit cards.
  • Finance expert Rachel Springall's words of warning could be found in the FT Adviser, discussing the recent rise in equity release rates. However, she also noted a welcome increase in the number of lifetime mortgages that offer a free valuation and even those that come without a product fee.
  • Rounding off this week's round-up are Your Money and the Mirror, which both ran with last week's report on the increased number of easy access accounts that come with some restriction.
