CLOSING THE FINANCIAL VALUE AND ADVICE GAP

Many people aspire to get more from their finances but are often too busy or unsure about how to go about it. Not rich enough for private banking advice, they make do with impersonal service and poor value from their traditional bank.

THE PENNYWORTH MISSION

We’re on a mission to remake banking for the twenty-first century. To put a private bionic banker in the pockets of busy people everywhere, so they can reach their goals. Because banking is socially valuable, but it's time for renewal.

THE FOUNDERS

The founders of Pennyworth left careers at Barclays Bank to create a new model of banking. A bionic bank for busy people. Digital banking designed for humans, by humans and with humans.
