The FCA-authorised firm’s personal financial management and savings app is designed to help people regain control of their money.

Mutaz Qubbaj, CEO and co-founder of Squirrel, said: “My main motivation for founding Squirrel was to make a real social difference. With a growing community of 8,000 people and rising, it is truly rewarding to hear the personal feedback from customers on how Squirrel has changed their habits with a positive impact on their personal financial management.
