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.

Wealthify have delivered excellent customer service for me when I needed some help transferring my general investment account to an ISA plan. I've also opened 2 Junior ISAs because I think its important to start investing for my children early. I really like the way their communications are really clear and informative. I've not had any problems as yet. I'm expecting my money to go down a bit as we are facing issues with uncertainty around Brexit etc... but investing is something I am hoping to do for a long time and I hope that this is something I will reap the benefits of especially for my children.

The app and investment options seem good and all, but my reason for leaving a review was the amazing customer support I received. I spoke to Rhiannon Maggs and she was wonderful. The perfect person to talk to. She was kind, professional, helpful, and she replied instantly. I'm leaving this hoping that possibly someone in a managerial position may see this and be able to give her what she deserves. Honestly from my experience she is the perfect employee and should be rewarded. Thank you Wealthify, and thank you Rhiannon!

My experience with Wealthify has been fantastic so far. The website is easy to use and the customer service are very responsive. Additionally, I had some issues with the app not working, so I emailed the team and they got back to me really promptly, not only fixing my issue by addressing the app issues and getting them fixed too!
