We’re proud to announce that FinTech Wales, a not-for profit independent membership organisation whose mission is to make Wales a global leader in the financial technology sector, has been launched today by our CEO and FinTech Envoy for Wales, Richard Theo.

 

Operating as a trade association, FinTech Wales aims to create the optimum environment for FinTech entrepreneurs and innovators to establish their business in Wales and give financial services companies already in Wales the support they need to flourish.

 

FinTech Wales will bring together key industry players to design strategies and support networks to help Welsh FinTech companies thrive. The association has established an Advisory Board of 20 members, including Wealthify and other key financial services companies in the region, such as Confused.com, Admiral, Principality Building Society, EY, Capital Law and Credas.

 

Commenting on the launch, our CEO and co-founder Richard Theo said: “The inauguration of FinTech Wales is the culmination of the work I have done to meet the challenge set by Parliament when I was appointed as FinTech Envoy for Wales in May 2018.

 

“Wales has many unique advantages as a location for FinTech, which is why I decided to establish both my businesses here. We aim to build on this and make it the best place to setup or scale-up a FinTech company. We will now develop a programme of activities to support businesses and entrepreneurs who want to setup or operate in Wales.”

 

A full launch, introducing each panel member and FinTech Wales’ strategy plans, is expected in the summer of 2019 and will be supported by Gavin Powell, who is the Welsh Government’s newly-appointed general secretary for the initiative.

I'm huge on personal finance, investing and saving. And, for me, Wealthify has allowed me to set up my investment fund, make use of my ISA allowance and make contributions / investments on auto-pilot. I knew that investing into Stocks, Shares, Bonds, Property and so on were all great, long term things to do, but Wealthify has made it easy and dummy-proof... I love it already!

I have found it extremely easy to set up and monitor my ISA. There is plenty of information about stock movements being made on my behalf and it feels like a very personal service being offered by this young company.

Staff is very friendly and quick to respond to any questions that I had. Everything is extremely transparent with emails when they are making drastic changes in the investment plan and as for performance, they did really put my money to work hard with good investment choices and a truly diversified portfolio.

Wealthify customer service is absolutely superb, it really cannot be faulted. I have had several queries which were answered, and where needed, actions taken within a few minutes of my call to them. 10/10. With regard to investment performance, overall it has been slightly above the performance of my other investment pots, despite me making my original deposits when global markets were significantly higher than they are now. If they can stay on course, 16% in a year, given all the fiscal uncertainty, is superb.

Wealthify has been a solid investment platform for me in the last year. Global markets have been a bit shaky but they have managed to keep some fairly consistent returns and stability for my portfolio. Above everything else though is the customer service. It is truly excellent and always done with a friendly attitude and every question I have had has been resolved straight away. Worth sticking with them for the customer service alone!
