“Financial health is a top-of-mind issue for more and more Canadians, and we are seeing this reflected in the growing adoption of our unique multi-product financial health solution,” said David Feller, Mogo’s Founder and CEO. “Our new member growth accelerated for the second quarter in a row.

We believe we are well positioned for continued strong member growth and engagement in 2021.”
