Ben Pollard, CEO and founder of Cushon, said: “Fintech is a force for good and we believe pensions should be the same. Until now, the pensions industry has lagged behind other areas of financial services and developed a reputation as technologically adverse. At Cushon, we’re on a mission to transform pensions and make them as easy to engage with as your banking app.

“Too many people only engage with their pension once a year when their annual statement arrives. This simply has to change and embracing fintech is the solution. We've invested in talent and technology to build a pension platform fit for the 21st Century that drives engagement, benefits the environment and ultimately, boosts member outcomes in retirement.”
