Employees are asking for more
More than half of UK adults regularly worry about money. We’re drowning in financial clickbait, calculators and chatbots.
But very few of us have access to someone we can talk to about our money – someone who can get to know us and help us plan for the future we want.
Financial wellbeing is the great, big octopus we’re not talking about
While we’ve made great strides in supporting physical and mental wellbeing, most businesses know they could do more to support their employees’ financial wellbeing.
Schools don’t teach money, society makes it taboo, and banks want to sell. We’re here to help employers fill the void.
Coaching is the missing link that has a big impact
While other platforms and algorithms promise personalisation, nothing’s more personal than a face-to-face conversation.
Coaching doesn’t just pique interest … it has a major impact on employees’ finances, and uptake of employee benefits.
When we worry less about money, we free up space to focus on what really matters to us.
What We Provide
Dedicated, impartial coaches Each employee gets their own financial coach to work with as much or as little as they want – with zero bias, no hidden agenda and no products to sell.
Planning technology Coaches show employees how to allocate money and build custom plans to reach their goals.

Money workshops Coaches create and lead live group sessions customised to the topics that your employees care most about.
Benefits integration Coaches become knowledgeable about all the benefits you offer so they can help employees get the most out of them.

With these small steps, Steve and Emma can expect to be £100k better off in 10 years’ time.
Up to 10-times more affordable than traditional financial advice
While traditional financial advice is a good option for the wealthy, we’re here for everyone. Our coaches never recommend specific financial products, avoiding the risks and costs associated with traditional advice. And thanks to our smart planning technology, we’ve been able to make professional support available to all, for a lot less.
For employers, we have a choice of pricing and funding options:
Employer Funded For maximum impact, employers can fund the full financial planning service for their employees, for less than it costs to buy everyone a monthly coffee.
Salary Sacrifice Employees can meet their coach annually, with unlimited email contact, without any charge whatsoever. Our full financial planning service then costs just £12-14 per month from net pay, if funded through salary sacrifice.
