In April 2023, we were named a Wealth Tech 100 company for the fifth consecutive year. The Wealth Tech 100 highlights the most innovative WealthTech companies in the UK that are delivering transformative technology to asset managers, banks and financial advisers.

We set out to shake up the UK savings market with a digital-first approach, combining straight-through processing capabilities with technical excellence in retirement wrappers. By scaling our business through technical innovation, acquisitions and a relentless focus on delivering the best solutions for our clients, we grew assets rapidly, joining a select and influential group of startup platform brands that successfully disrupted the traditional savings market.

We continue to work closely with financial businesses to deliver their long-term savings and investment propositions to UK consumers using our platform, investments and pensions experience and we also offer fund research and consultancy services.
