Pariti Launch Press Release

  1. 1. For Immediate Release Tuesday, 5 January 2016 MOBILE APP SETS NEW PRECEDENT FOR MANAGING PERSONAL FINANCE - AUTOMATICALLY FORECASTS BILLS AND SETS SPENDING LIMITS - Pariti has launched a mobile app to help millions of Britons struggling with personal debt, lack of savings and volatile incomes to improve their financial resilience. The free app takes a completely fresh look at the way people will manage their finances in the future. It securely connects to a user’s bank accounts and credit cards to provide a simplified view of their financial health. It automatically detects and forecasts upcoming income and bills and calculates a manageable weekly spending target. In cash positive weeks, users are incentivised to save money to build up their financial security while in more difficult weeks, where outgoings are forecast to exceed incomings, they are motivated to make small savings. With clever algorithms constantly looking ahead to forecast a person’s financial position and updating with every transaction, the app is able to proactively nudge users to remain on track. Watch the demo video: Pariti Demo Video The app will particularly benefit first jobbers and those on lower incomes as they are often the most financially vulnerable. Research¹ by Pariti found that four out of five young people, aged 18 to 24 years, are not able to save any money from their pay packets and may be forced to rely on credit cards and expensive loans to cover emergency expenditures. Matt Ford, Pariti’s Founder and CEO said: “Many people, particularly those just starting out or on low incomes, are financially very fragile. They may be only a few pounds or days away from getting into debt each month. They either ignore the problem, hoping it will disappear, or take out a high interest loan which compounds the issue. “By providing a clear and simple picture of their financial status and helping people feel like they’re in control, Pariti users can make more informed choices today and see how that decision will affect their position in the future.” Every deposit, expenditure and regular monthly payment is fed into the algorithm to deliver a clear view of a person’s financial health now and at the end of the month. Users no longer have to guess whether their cash will last until payday. The app can detect looming financial shortfalls, giving people the opportunity to take immediate preventative steps to minimise the risk of getting into debt.
  2. 2. Pariti is awaiting regulatory approval from the Financial Conduct Authority. It will then offer responsible saving and credit products from trusted partners. The products would be carefully matched to individual users to ensure they are affordable and manageable financial solutions. In addition, Pariti plans to offer an application programme interface (API) to trusted third parties to be integrated into their own websites. This will enable users to securely share their financial profile with a provider when sourcing appropriate financial products. Matt added: “We can eventually deliver completely new types of finance products, which are fairer, lower cost and genuinely suitable for people rather than being wedded to one bank or baffled by the complexity of products on the market.” Backed by world-class investors, including Index Ventures and JamJar Investments, Pariti employs multi-level security to keep users’ financial data safe. It uses the same advanced SSL encryption and industry-standard security practices as the world's leading banks, verified by Internet security experts Comodo, while trusted data partner Yodlee aggregates the real-time financial data without the requirement for Pariti to store sensitive credentials and login details. The app can be downloaded for free from the iTunes App Store. An Android version will be launched in the first half of 2016.
