About Salary Finance

Salary Finance is an award-winning FinTech business with a social purpose - to help employees take control of their finances.  We launch with employers as an employee benefit and help people to understand their money better, get out of debt faster and save for their future.  

By improving their financial wellbeing, we have a very real and meaningful impact on people’s lives. We remove the stress and worry associated with financial difficulties by dramatically reducing the interest rates employees pay on their personal debt, provide access to earned pay early, provide them with the tools needed to start saving sooner and be more financially secure. 

Launched in 2015, we have made excellent progress, and are scaling fast. We are named BITC’s Responsible Business of Year 2018, included in KPMG’s Global Fintech 100, listed top of the Forbes' list of socially-responsible startups, and profiled by the Financial Times, the Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Guardian, the Telegraph, CityAM and the Institute of Directors.

We were co-founded by entrepreneurs Asesh Sarkar (CEO), Daniel Shakhani, and former Head of Google UK and Ireland Dan Cobley (Chairman) and are authorised by the FCA.
