About Romi Savova:
Romi is Chief Executive Officer of PensionBee, the leading online pension provider she founded to simplify pension savings in the UK, following a harrowing pension transfer experience of her own. PensionBee uses technology to help customers find and combine their old pensions into one new online plan.

Romi has played a key role in advancing consumer standards in the pensions industry, from reducing transfer times to campaigning for the full abolition of exit fees. PensionBee is the first pension provider to utilise Open Banking, enabling customers to see their live pension balance alongside their current account. In 2019, Romi joined the Financial Conduct Authority’s working group on Open Pensions and Investments, advocating for safe and efficient data sharing protocols for pension information.
