Hi, we’re Penfold
Penfold is building the pension of the future. We’re dragging the multi-trillion-pound pension industry out of the dark ages. Think about how challenger banks have changed banking. We’re demystifying pensions to make them universally accessible, engaging, and exciting so we can help everyone save enough for later life.
We have over £15 million in funding and are backed by some of the world’s most successful fintech investors & entrepreneurs.
