Today we launch a new comparison site dedicated to helping savers.  Why have we done this?  Firstly, we feel that the market doesn’t serve savers properly.  Many comparison sites now cover such large volumes of products that savings has become a sideline of their activities.  Secondly, those that do cater for savers display the information poorly or inaccessibly and we felt, from talking to savers, that we could make it clearer and easier to read.  Thirdly, we work across the industry and are uniquely placed to offer a view across the spectrum.  We hope that our insight can help inform savers to make the best decisions for their savings.

Our Founder, James Blower, commented: ‘The comparison part of the site has been something we’ve wanted to develop for sometime.  The finished product is the direct result of listening to feedback from customers on their experiences with other sites.  We hope that we’ve delivered something that savers will love.  There’s more to do – we want to add ISAs shortly for example – but we wanted to develop the site with what works for savers.  Please do get in touch and share your thoughts so that we can incorporate your views in the next phase of development.'

Savings Guru are thrilled to announce that we will be working with Arbuthnot Latham Private Bank.  Founder, James Blower, said ‘Arbuthnot are a very progressive bank looking to develop their business and it is a pleasure to be assisting them in achieving this. We look forward to helping them over the coming months.’  Arbuthnot become the third new client for Savings Guru in 2017 in what is fast becoming the most exciting year since launch.

We are delighted to have been invited to talk about challenger banks and their influence on the market.  Our Founder, James Blower, will be on the BBC Radio Scotland breakfast show tomorrow morning at around 7.40am talking to Gillian Marles about the different types of challenger banks, what’s behind the influx of new banks, whether they have been successful and what he sees happening in the future.
