Wealth Wizards and Moneyhub in Open Data partnership
Wealth Wizards, the financial advice technology provider, is to utilise Moneyhub Enterprise’s data APIs to offer holistic advice and guidance driven by real-time consent driven personal data.
The collaboration will allow users of Wealth Wizards’ financial advice chatbot, MyEva, to link their financial accounts – including bank, credit card, investment, savings and borrowing – to the app.
MyEva helps users improve their financial situations with independent personalised guidance and advice throughout key life stages – whether they are clearing debt, building up savings, buying a home or preparing for retirement.
It does this by offering help, information and nudges on a range of personal finance matters, as well as regulated pensions and investments advice.
The Moneyhub integration will make that advice and guidance even more relevant to users by linking it to real-time data about their finances.
Wealth Wizards also aims to white label the proposition – so that financial institutions can build their own applications based on the collaboration – and to build the integration into its platform for financial advisers, Turo.
Andrew Firth, Co-founder and CEO of Wealth Wizards, said: “This is a genuine milestone in personal finance. Together with Moneyhub, we are bringing to market a 24/ 7 digital companion that will offer highly personalised guidance and regulated advice based on real-time developments in the financial lives of users. That means it will be there at the very moments that users need it.
“It will not only make advice more personalised for people accessing it directly through apps like MyEva but it will power-up the work of financial advisers using our Turo tool with their clients by making it even more efficient and effective at gathering relevant data.”
The Moneyhub and Wealth Wizards partnership leverages Open Banking regulations, which allow people safely and securely to connect their bank accounts with regulated third parties, offering a host of new benefits.
Sam Seaton, CEO of Moneyhub, said: “Open Banking empowers individuals to make better money decisions through giving them access to real-time information on their finances. Our financial lives are fragmented, which can make it hard to see the full picture and even harder to properly plan for the future. A more holistic approach to advice and money management will ultimately lead to more financially independent individuals ready for whatever life brings.
“Asking for help is a key stepping stone to a better financial future, and the development of the first 24/7 financial advice chatbot, one that pulls in all your financial information, has the potential to be transformative. We are thrilled to be working with the team at Wealth Wizards to provide this innovative solution.”
MyEva is available to individuals and is offered through employers. Users have included technology firm Ricoh, Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust (CNWL) and PVH, whose brand portfolio includes Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger.
