The October Round Up
We’ve got some BIG news… we’re giving you the opportunity to become a Moneybox Shareholder! 🎉
For the first time, we’re offering free Moneybox shares to our community. It’s a bit like crowdfunding but instead of paying for your shares, you just need to transfer one or more of your old pensions to us by 30th November.
Over the last few months, we’ve helped our early pension beta customers find and consolidate thousands of old pensions, worth an average of £10,000 each! 🙌
We are now excited to be rolling out our pensions beta to the wider Moneybox community – everyone with the latest version of the app can participate. You will see two new cards in your Accounts tab which will allow you register for shares and transfer in your old pensions all from within the app. 📲
Our co-founders, Ben and Charlie, and the rest of the Moneybox team are thrilled to be giving you the opportunity to own a part of the company and bring you even closer to our journey. 🚀
As a pensions beta customer and shareholder, we’ll look to you for feedback on the product and together create an amazing experience for everyone. You can learn more about the Moneybox Pension in our blog post.
Watch Ben take you through everything you need to know about becoming a Moneybox Shareholder.
What our early pension beta users have been saying:
“I can see everything at a glance. Moneybox collated all of my different pensions and it was painless. I thought I had around £40k but turns out it was £66,000! Now I just use the app and I can see how my pension is doing, how I want it invested and it’s all at the touch of a button. It’s been great!” – John
“I was really impressed how quick the transfer was processed. I also didn’t realise how big my pension pot was because my old provider didn’t communicate with me! Thanks Moneybox.” – Peter
We’ve been nominated as a finalist for the Moneyfacts Digital Wealth Management Provider of the Year award. 🏆
If you think Moneybox deserves your vote, we’d love you to support us by completing this short survey. Those who take part can win one of three £1000 prizes from Moneyfacts. Voting closes on the 15th November.
Awards like this are a great way to spread the word about Moneybox and encourage even more people to start saving and investing for their future!
