The Company:

Wagestream's mission is to eradicate the poverty premium, which costs frontline workers an extra £5.8 billion per year in the UK.

The poverty premium breaks down into:

  1. Higher insurance premiums
  2. HIgher energy tariffs
  3. Higher cost of credit (e.g. payday loans)
  4. Non-standard billing methods
  5. Use of pre-payment meters
  6. Insurance for individual items
  7. ATM fees

Wagestream's first product is flexible pay or 'Earned Wage Access' (EWA), which allows employees to access their pay immediately after earning it instead of having to wait until the end of the month, and removes the need for payday loans.

We now want to go after the remainder of the poverty premium, and systematically rebuild financial services from the ground up to be fair for all.
