A little about us

  • We believe that there are better ways for people to control their money. Easier, fairer ways.

  • You operate best without lots of bureaucracy. We don’t hide behind fancy job titles or clunky processes ‘because that’s how things are done’.
  • You approach work in a logical way. We are not afraid to make mistakes but we use data and logic to backup decisions and improve understanding.
  • And you share our mission to improve people’s relationship with their money.
