Hello, Friday! This week’s cheeky cocktail should be taken with a side of caution about public sector pension chaos and a £2.7m “unauthorised” shopping bill, a dash of glee at how much some of our fave City boys have raised for charity this week, plus more (that’s the cherry on top)!
We’re not going to pretend that Love Island has been offering us a distraction from the impending realities of a Johnson-run number 10, so much so that we’ve discovered that a cast member has ties to AJ Bell, as well as some more suitably serious stuff - get your umbrellas on cocktail sticks out for this week’s measure of Tech & Tonic!
Before you log off, here’s what you might have missed this week - Sir Philip Green has seemingly gone from rags to riches in one week, MP Nicky Morgan closes in on gender pay gap and the Government are criticised for taking ‘74 years’ to prepare for something, literally! It’s all here for you in this week’s Tech & Tonic!
Wombat Invest, the theme-based investment app, has appointed fintech content marketing agency Foco to handle digital communications and PR.
The consultancy has been briefed to create and share content that will help Wombat realise its mission – to make investing easy and accessible.
Wombat’s users can choose from 15 themed funds that reflect their interests and beliefs. These include ‘The Social Media Guru’, ‘The Foodie’ and ‘The British Bulldog’.
Michael Taggart, Foco’s managing director, said: “Wombat’s vision – for a nation that mixes user-friendly technology with good education to invest in inspiring ideas – is both exhilarating and achievable.
“What a privilege it is for Foco to be a small part of a team that will deliver that future, especially at these early and exciting times.”
Nick Bentley, chief marketing officer at Wombat, said: “We’re want to change the way Britons invest – based on their passions and beliefs and with the possibility of depositing regularly at a very low cost.
“To do this, we need to work with partners who live and breathe fintech PR and communications and can help us articulate our story. This is why we believe Foco is the right content marketing agency for us and we can’t wait to see what they bring to Wombat’s communications.”
Do you look at things a bit differently from most people you know? Okay. We might have something for you.
You are a special person who has worked in PR or content marketing for at least six years and you are chomping at the bit for a senior role with more autonomy and the freedom to be creative.
