Sole traders join the owners of limited companies in being able to access PensionBee through the Starling app, along with personal customers.
The fintechs have strengthened their two-way API integration through the development of new features using open banking technology. They originally partnered in 2018 when PensionBee became the digital bank’s first financial services Marketplace integration.
PensionBee enables users to access all of their pensions on one platform. Through this integration, mutual customers can now also do so through the Starling app and make contributions.
Jasper Martens, chief marketing officer at PensionBee, commented: “We’re delighted that PensionBee is now available to all of Starling’s business and personal customers through all of its marketplaces. It couldn’t be simpler for Starling customers to manage their pension savings without ever leaving their banking app.”
“Together PensionBee and Starling have a long history of innovation and we look forward to making it even easier for our customers to manage their money for today alongside their money for tomorrow with further product features in the future.”
Will Boocock, head of Marketplace and business support at Starling, added: “Saving for a pension often ends up as another thing to do on a to-do list. Our new sole trader PensionBee partnership makes saving for the future much quicker and easier as you can sign up via the Starling Bank app allowing you to combine old pensions and invest in new ones.”
