For immediate release

Communications consultancy Foco has been appointed to handle public relations for fintech start-up Bean.

Bean is an online personal finance assistant that helps customers cut down on recurring costs by finding, tracking and managing the regular bills and subscriptions in people’s bank account.

Foco, which launched in August, is briefed to help the company become a household name by raising awareness across traditional and new media.

Michael Taggart, co-founder of Foco, said: “The simple fact is Bean’s platform could help thousands – maybe millions – of people save significant sums by managing their payments better.

“Anyone can use this technology – but it’s particularly useful to vulnerable people who struggle to manage their outgoings. We’re eager to help Bean succeed.”

Peter Myatt, co-founder of Bean, said: “Foco might be a new consultancy but Michael and his colleagues have years of experience in consumer-facing financial technology services.

“I’ve known the team for a long time and their expertise in communications matches our vision to make managing your personal finances as easy as ordering an Uber.”
