These days, most of us prefer to do things online – whether it’s banking, budgeting or accounting, you’d much rather get things sorted instantly, on your own terms, on your mobile. That’s why we’re building Penfold – the pension that’s completely online.
But even if you don’t ever have to call us, write to us or meet us in person (although our door is always open at our office in London Bridge (), we think it’s nice for you to know a little bit about the team behind Penfold.
Pete takes care of all our customers. He spends his time making sure that as many people as possible have access to the Penfold Pension, and that they have a great experience when they do. Pete met co-founder Chris at Deloitte, before spending the last few years helping build different technology companies trying to shape the future of work.
Chris is in charge of assembling all the pieces that will make Penfold the digital pension that truly works for everyone. This means not only designing the best features for our customers but also working with our partners, like the world-class money managers who invest our customers’ pensions as well as our regulators (the FCA), to make the behind the scenes process as good as it can be. Chris has helped various large financial institutions with their corporate strategy, first at Deloitte, where he also qualified as an accountant, then in-house at investment manager Man Group.
Stuart leads the team building the Penfold website and mobile app. This includes creating cool new features to help you understand your pension better and get the most out of it, but also making sure your data is kept secure and that you can always access your pension. Stuart was one of the first engineers at Funding Circle, the UK’s first FinTech Unicorn. He left Funding Circle after their IPO to help Penfold grow just as big.
