MIV Catch Up - Romi Savova, PensionBee
PensionBee CEO Romi Savova joined us on Twitter for #MIVReveals on Wednesday 19th April 2017. PensionBee aims to help savers track down the various pensions they have contributed to and consolidate them before encouraging them to start making more contributions. To put it simply, PensionBee helps customers combine their pensions into a single online plan.
