“Upvest's vision and product have the potential to revolutionise the entire industry, and create a whole new generation of investors. I have always wondered why investing had to be so complicated, slow and expensive. For Upvest, it just has to be as simple as spending money.”

“I like the day-to-day balances, the freedom of a greenfield model, but with the initial structures and processes of a far more mature organisation. I am still staggered by an Upvest culture which seems completely ego-free and values deep collaboration based on mutual trust.”
