Our founder, Frank Mukahanana is an investment banking professional come financial adviser. He spent years helping working professionals with their finances and was shocked by the dismal state of the finances of a good number of intelligent, hard-working clients he met. Through no fault of their own, they did not grasp the fundamental concepts of how money works. Consequently, over the prior years, these clients had picked up products they did not understand, and that did not appear to support their core objectives.
Mukahanana also noticed that there was a dwindling number of independent financial advisers (IFAs) which may have been an unintended consequence of the introduction of new rules for IFAs. Sadly, this meant that the much-needed advice would not always be easily available for those not so well off; hence he decided to create Savvney.
In setting up Savvney, core to what he believed is that financial success should be a reality for every hard-working professional in the UK and not just reserved for a privileged few. Accordingly, Savvney’s mission is to deliver straight-talking, aspirational financial education with the goal of giving people back control of their finances and for them to gain the confidence to navigate their journey to financial success, whatever that might look like for them.
Why use Savvney?
If you are a business, charity or local government, Savvney will help you improve staff welfare, increase your productivity and attract & retain your best talent. As a community interest company (CIC); all our profits are ploughed back into the community as we embark on this great movement to educate people on how money works.
Savvney offers unbiased, comprehensive financial education and training maintaining our independence as product providers do not pay us to deliver our education programmes.
To achieve the best results, Savvney partners with businesses to provide a foundational one-day Workplace-Based Financial Education course. After this, the employees can then subscribe (significantly discounted) to our Online Video-Based programme which is expected to complete Beta testing early 2017. Savvney believes that a strong partnership between the individual, the employer and Savvney will achieve a better deal for all.
