Oval brings trust back into personal finance and opens it to everyone. The team is committed to driving education, fairness, and financial inclusion in the industry.
We rethink what seems obvious to create something previously unknown. We compete with the market, because fair competition brings innovation.
Saving and investment early should be for everyone, with no limit to how little the amount is.
be a Dreamer
Dreaming means leading. Leading means doing. No dream should be too far to conquer and no ambition too insane to see happen.
We have built a fully transparent organisation where the best idea wins and where communication across borders and teams is the key to our decision-making.
We believe in solving a problem that seems impossible by rewriting the framework and rules to make it simple.
Simple is beautiful. After all, anyone can pick up pen and paper and start drawing. But designing something simple to use is still very hard.
Without our Ovalers we do not exist. We believe in empowering our users always, making their experience magical and learning from their feedback every day.
Who believes in us
We're honored to have entrepreneurs and finance experts behind Oval Money.
