Mobile challenger Atom Bank has announced global music star Will.i.am as its first strategic board adviser.

In his new role, Will.i.am will provide an insight into culture, philanthropy and technology, with experience as director of creative innovation for computer chip giant Intel.

“Like us, Will.i.am believes that technology can better and simplify our lives, which is at the heart of all that we are passionate about at Atom,” said Anthony Thomson, Atom founder and chairman.

“As we develop the range of products and services on offer to customers, Will.i.am’s unique view on the world and knowledge of future trends will be a great asset for us.”

In December, Atom Bank launched a residential mortgage offering available via selected intermediaries.

This latest announcement follows cuts to Atom’s five-year fixed rate mortgages for a limited time.

Will.i.am added: “Our lives are faster than ever before, but the banking industry hasn’t kept up.

“The scale of Atom’s ambition to help people understand and manage their money better – and its clever use of technology to give people an entire bank on their phone – is awesome.

“I’m looking forward to working with Atom to achieve success in everything we will do together.”
