The Wealth at Work group secures new investment bringing opportunities to Bristol.

The Wealth at Work group based in Liverpool and Bristol has secured further investment from private equity house Aquiline Capital Partners (a private investment firm based in New York and London with $6.1 billion in assets under management) to support its continued growth.*

They work with over 450 private and public sector employers including Marks & Spencer, BT and Experian and the NHS and Local Authorities delivering financial wellbeing programmes and retirement services.

In light of the growth in organisations implementing financial wellbeing strategies and the introduction of pension freedoms in 2015, the Wealth at Work group has achieved rapid growth to meet the significant demand for its services of; financial education, guidance and regulated financial advice which are now offered to over a million employees across various organisations.

The technology-driven service is uniquely tailored to each client’s requirements through a complete suite of services ranging from seminars and digital tools such as the Financial Healthcheck through to virtual or telephone guidance services and regulated financial advice.
