About the Role
Smarterly is an exciting, young fintech business that makes investing easier for everyone. We provide an easy, affordable and convenient way for everyone to invest using our savings and investing platform which uses artificial intelligence to build and monitor investment ISA portfolios. It’s as easy as shopping on Amazon!
At a time when interest rates are at a near all-time low and financial wellbeing is high on the agenda for many employers, we aim to turn the UK in to a nation of savers by offering our platform and technology as part of an employee benefits package through the workplace. We help employees build healthy savings habits by saving and investing direct from their pay.
Backed by Unum, a Fortune 500 Company and one of the UK’s largest providers of employee benefits, Smarterly partners with the UK’s leading Employee Benefits Consultants and has many high-profile corporate clients including some of the best-known global brands.
