Volt is Australia’s first neobank, on a mission to help people develop positive financial habits and be masters of their own money, initially by learning to save often and spend wisely. Volt is digital, independent, safe, and reliable, and was the first neobank to release a ‘no catches’ variable interest rate not riddled with hoops, hurdles, tricks, or conditions. The saving challenge teaches consumers to form a savings habit by choosing to complete six weekly, fortnightly, or monthly deposits. Deposits with Volt of up to $250,000 are covered by the Government’s financial claims scheme.
