Meet Cleo

Cleo was created to improve your financial health.

Already, she’s helped 3 million people improve their relationship to money with simplicity and a sense of humour.

She’s not a bank though. She’s an interface for the 99% – an AI assistant defining a new category, one that goes beyond saving up to actually changing how we feel about our finances

Through chat, she provides you with deep insights about your money, while suggesting personalised financial products that increase your ability to save. But it’s really our tone of voice that makes us special.

We’re a product for the next generation. That means we’re meeting our users where they are and building the type of relationship they expect. It also means dropping the BS.

In 5 years Cleo should be so intelligent, so engaging, that the relationship you have is unlike anything that’s come before.
