With the rise of the sharing economy and flexible working, many people do not have access to benefits traditionally provided through employment including services and providers that can help them plan, save and invest for retirement. Uber is working to address this issue, and by teaming up with Moneyfarm is connecting its partner-drivers with expert financial advice.
The partnership coincides with the launch of a new pension product from Moneyfarm in the next few months, which will help partner-drivers plan ahead for their retirement.
Jo Bertram, Regional General Manager of Uber in the UK, said: "We've heard from many of our partner-drivers that they want to save for the future. That's why we're really pleased to be partnering with Moneyfarm, who will soon offer Uber partners discounted products from ISAs to pensions, along with improved access to financial education."
Giovanni Daprà, CEO and co-founder of Moneyfarm, commented: “We are delighted to partner with Uber, and look forward to providing its partner-drivers in the UK expert financial advice through our ISA and pension products.”
