PensionBee

Romi-Savova-headshot-OA-PROFILERomi Savova founded an online pension manager that helps people find and combine their pensions into a simple-to-use online plan.

PensionBee is a relative newcomer to Britain’s booming fintech scene and is making great strides. “Over the course of the last year, we’ve built our core technology, put in place the most amazing team and released the product to the general public,” says Roma. “Each week we’re seeing more and more people signing up, and it’s clear that we’re addressing a real problem.”

PensionBee’s burgeoning success has not come easy. “Working in a startup means resources are sometimes tight, whether it’s time, workforce or desk space,” Romi says. “And, yes, sometimes you have to exchange those precious sleeping hours for a double macchiato and emails.”

PensionBee’s team is key to the success. “Everyone truly cares about the company. We’re creating something new and unique, and everyone is excited to test new ideas and see how they can push those ideas forward to create the best possible solution.”

Romi says PensionBee’s mission to future-proof finances is what motivates her. “It’s incredibly fulfilling to develop a product that helps people in their 30s and 40s save for later as, the way things stand, the State Pension won’t offer them enough support and they’re facing a worrying future. It’s a big problem to solve but it’s what makes me want to come to work.”
