Smart Money People is the UK’s dedicated financial services review website. The site and platform helps people and financial brands to create better outcomes. Smart Money People shares the collective wisdom and experiences of customers to provide insights and ideas that will help shape the future of finance.
Since its launch in 2014, Smart Money People has received over 1.2m reviews on products and services from financial companies including banks, building societies, insurers, and credit providers.
Having recently rebranded to a fresher and more vibrant look and feel, Smart Money People has ambitious plans to grow in 2023 and beyond, aiming to collect even more reviews, and therefore provide more insights about financial products and services.
This acquisition with Be Clever With Your Cash will offer people easier access to an even bigger range and depth of content. This means a greater variety of videos, podcasts, articles and blog posts on all things finance.
It will also enable Smart Money People to react more quickly to news and financial products and services as they are launched, keeping consumers in the know at all times. The combined businesses will help more than 5 million people this year to make more informed decisions with their money.
