Ben Hampton, CEO of Wealth Wizards, explains the company's alignment with the Fintech Pledge 2025 and its commitment to improving financial well-being in the UK:

"The Fintech Pledge 2025 aligns perfectly with Wealth Wizards' mission to enhance financial well-being in the UK. The ongoing cost-of-living crisis has highlighted the importance of this Pledge for households and individuals nationwide.
"Our solutions aim to help everyday people across the UK. We partner with financial advice firms, banks, pension providers and employers to improve the UK’s relationship with money. Although the Fintech Pledge 2025 members have made significant progress towards the target of 10 million actions, there is still much to be done.
“This campaign can potentially bring positive, impactful societal change at a time when the Regulator is looking to increase access to help through the advice guidance boundary review."
