*About Moneybox*
A generation is growing up without the tools or information they need to confidently build their financial future.

Whether the next goal is getting on the property ladder, starting their own business or paying for the big day, they are not being supported effectively by current providers.

For many, the concept of ‘wealth’ seems alien; it seems both too general and something only other people have.

That’s because there isn’t enough help available;
* the ‘wealth management’ industry is set up for those who already have wealth, not those who need to build it.
* banks are focused on selling products rather than helping people to achieve financial outcomes.
* financial planning is not taught at school or at work.

All of this means people don’t know where to start, taking part feels alien and unachievable everything seems very complicated

Our ambition is to help a generation invest in their future.
