Bud and PensionBee partner to make budgeting for retirement simpler

PensionBee is introducing a live pension balance through money budgeting app Bud. The partnership offers savers their first chance to manage their pension through a budgeting app, and marks yet another important step in PensionBee’s quest to revolutionise retirement saving.

Since the launch of the online pension manager in June last year, over 17,000 people have signed up to the PensionBee platform. PensionBee combines workplace and personal pensions into one online plan, managed by investment managers BlackRock or State Street.

PensionBee joins established brands American Express, HSBC, RBS and Barclays as well as emerging fintech platforms such as Moneyfarm and World First.

Jasper Martens, VP Marketing of PensionBee commented: “Most users want to see their pensions in one place. 65% of our customers will only deal with us on their mobile phone and skip their desktops altogether. Mobile app Bud will now allow you to see all your finances, including your online PensionBee pension in one place.”

Ed Maslaveckas, CEO of Bud commented: “Our partnership with PensionBee is an excellent example of how all financial products can come together to create a better experience for our users. As well as Pensions, we are linking people’s bank accounts, savings products, investments and mortgages, so people can use all of these products in one place. It’s a simpler way to be in control of all of your finances.”
