Employee Financial Wellness acquired by Wealth at Work

Employee Financial Wellness Limited, a financial wellbeing company, has been acquired by the Wealth at Work group.

The acquisition comes as Wealth at Work expands its operation overseas into Ireland and follows other recent announcements from the group, including the acquisition of Alderley Edge based technology build firm DBD Digital.

Both companies previously worked together on delivering financial wellbeing and retirement programmes in the UK and Ireland for clients such as Northern Trust and Sisk.

Commenting on the acquisition, Wealth at Work director, Johnathan Watts-Lay, stated: “We welcome Employee Financial Wellness to the family as we look to expand our services into Ireland to companies requiring a one stop shop for financial wellness solutions including digital communications, financial education, guidance and regulated financial advice.

“This is particularly important given so many large tech companies are based in this area with other offices in Europe and across the continent.

“This allows us to really expand upon our already existing global reach to meet the increasing demand from existing clients who are global employers.”

Employee Financial Wellness managing director, Nick Lawlor, was similarly enthusiastic, stating that the acquisition was good for both the company’s clients and teams as it adds capacity and market to its expertise and solutions.

“Being part of the Wealth at Work group family will help to spearhead the delivery of a fully integrated end-to-end financial wellness solution to companies and their employees in Ireland,” he continued.

“We jointly recognise the transformative benefits that bringing together our teams and expertise will deliver and see it as an incredible opportunity to make a real difference to people’s lives.”
