Open positions: Full Stack Developer
15 July, 2022
Boring Money has been set up to help ‘normal people’ to make better choices with their savings, investments and pensions.
In Q1 this year we had 500,000 consumers on our site, using our Best Buy tables to find ISAs and pensions, or our Shortcut Quiz to help them find the right product or advice for them. We have recently added advice tables and an Adviser Directory, which help consumers to pick the right digital adviser or individual traditional adviser for their needs.
This year we will build and launch new community-based ‘Learn Paths’ – content and learning aimed at specific groups of consumers, starting with women in their 40s and 50s.
Our consumer website, webinars, quizzes and proprietary consumer panel all give us a unique view of what British savers and investors want, fear, understand and need. This always-on feedback loop is increasingly fuelling our research and insights business, as we work with the industry to help them with qualitative and quantitative research, as well as advisory and consultancy projects. We help the industry understand the voice of the customer, and so make better products, services and communications.
Using our unique consumer insights and working with advisers in the industry and in our newly formed Adviser Directory, we create a series of subscription products, research reports and bespoke projects which help our clients to create better products and services.
We work with asset managers, banks, building societies, investment platforms, robo advisers and wealth management firms.
We are backed by a number of HNW individuals and FTSE100 abrdn is a shareholder. We have a strong Board and non-executive directors, including Justine Roberts, CEO of Mumsnet.
OUR GROWTH PLANS
After a recent successful fundraise last year, we have ambitious growth plans in 2022.
We will continue to boost our traffic and so become an influential source of help for the growing cohort of DIY investors and pension savers. Our ratings, awards and content offer increasingly compelling opportunities for the industry to get in front of consumers.
As we grow, and as more consumers tell us what they like, want and need, so our proprietary insights get more powerful. With our own customer panels, developing datasets and new CRM, we are well placed to offer the industry unique real-time customer insights and research.
Our newly created adviser pages and Adviser Directory bring the voice of advisers onto our site, helping readers with their questions and providing introductions between adviser and client. We are developing our Advice plans and increasing the adviser research we conduct to complement the consumer research we are best known for.
We work with a wide range of industry clients – fund managers, banks, platforms, robos and advice firms. With our subscription data products, published reports and bespoke research projects, we help providers to:
Size the market
Understand the competitor landscape
Track customer feedback and sentiment
Test new propositions
Test UX and customer journeys
Understand changing sentiment
Do a deep dive on thematic projects such as sustainable investing, digital advice, engaging particular client segments and more
