Working with us

Find out more about what it's like to work with the team behind the award-winning digital pension.

Penfold's three founders Stuart Robinson, Chris Eastwood and Pete Hykin

We started Penfold because we've experienced the difficulty of engaging with pensions as savers, as self-employed workers and as employers who had to set up pension schemes for employees.

Peoples' expectations for customer experience are defined by modern tech businesses. They're always innovating on what good looks like.

But, the pensions industry has not been able to keep pace. Old-school pension companies provide a terrible digital experience and customer service is difficult to engage with and jargon-filled. The end result is people are put off from engaging with their pension.

We're addressing the core technological problem at the heart of the industry by building a modern digital pension from scratch. We want to do what challenger banks have done for banking in the pension industry.
