Sam Lathey, Bippit: improving peoples’ financial knowledge, resilience and wellbeing 💰💜

Sam Lathey is the Co-Founder and CEO of Bippit.

To use Sam’s own words, he went from being a “complete financial screw up” to becoming a “trusted financial” advisor. On this journey Sam realised that most people have no or very limited knowledge and support when it comes to managing their finances. 

Did you know that money is the number one cause of stress for 60% of people?

Sam explains that young people receive no financial education in school, most people start their professional careers in debt and later in life fall into troubling financial situations or are unable to afford key life events like buying a house or having a child.

Sam wanted to change this and give everyone access to the financial guidance they need, so he founded Bippit. Bippit work with employers to provide 1 on 1 financial coaching, helping people to better manage their money and plan for the future they want.
