Our Values
We are only successful if we strive to live by our values. These aren't just lofty ideals but an integral part of our DNA.
Put people at the heart of everything we do
We believe being good isn’t good enough
It’s clear and simple: everyone has the right to a better financial future. That is why we get out of bed every morning. We don’t cut corners, we focus on the mission and we help our users build that future.
We believe in creating compelling connections
Exceptional experiences come from powerful and meaningful connections - connections that we build with empathy and care for our users.
Winning is a team sport
We believe in inspiring others and being our best selves
Only by bringing our best selves to everything can we inspire others to do the same - this is how we lead. Only together can we build nurturing, collaborative communities. Only by sharing the same goal and holding each other accountable can we reach new heights.
We believe our diversity makes us stronger
We celebrate our differences and allow every voice to be heard. Yet we remain honest and sincere with each other. This is how we will make a difference.
Blaze the trail
We believe imagination has no boundaries
We see ourselves as creators; constantly adapting to change and pushing the limits further than we originally thought possible.
We believe in driving fast but wearing a seat belt
We dare to think big but do it with a touch of common sense. We use data to break new ground but we don’t let the thirst for innovation cloud our judgment. We innovate for the user and not for our personal gain.
