Invest in the future of wealth management. 
Invest in ikigai.

ikigai is redefining the way young affluent people bank, approaching personal finance from a personal place — an approach to money that we believe escapes incumbents and challengers alike.

Young affluents are entering their prime earning and spending years1. They have specific expectations of the financial sector that aren’t being met. Unlike previous generations, they approach their wealth as an act of self-care, rather than avarice.

That’s why we’re helping this under-serviced but increasingly powerful audience achieve their financial and personal goals - whatever they are.

Join our exclusive community and invest in the future of wealth.

Why is ikigai crowdfunding?

ikigai is a well-funded fintech with the backing of significant institutional investors, but we want to give our community the opportunity to be part of our journey as well. Our clients are at the heart of what we do and we want to ensure that as many of them as possible have the chance to own a part of our success. Along with our latest round of funding, all money raised through our crowdfunding campaign will be put towards accelerating our product and growing our team - the two things that will allow us to truly focus on providing the best-in-class service we know people want and need.

What does ikigai offer?

ikigai uniquely combines personal banking and wealth management, so you can spend, save, and invest all from one app. Our carefully curated and globally diversified portfolios of ETFs are built in collaboration with BlackRock, the leader in asset management, who provide insights and allocation guidance. We also provide current account features as an “Everyday” account and a completely separate “Nest” account for your savings. Innovative money splitter features allow you to easily allocate your money as it comes in, so you’re entirely in control of how much you put aside for day-to-day purchases, and what you save or invest.

How is your offering different to other challenger and digital banks?

ikigai is the first fintech in the UK to provide a current account, savings account and wealth management all in one app. We work with best-in-class technology and financial partners to ensure the premium level of service that we know people want and deserve.

Who are the founders of ikigai?

Maurizio Kaiser is the co-founder of ikigai, on a mission to build the UK's first real digital private banking service. Maurizio grew frustrated with the current “premium” banking offerings in the UK and believes private banking should be as smooth and seamless as ordering a flat white. Prior to founding ikigai, Maurizio was at McKinsey and Company where he met co-founder Edgar de Picciotto.

Edgar di Picciotto is the co-founder of ikigai, a premium service combining digital banking and wealth management in one app. It is Edgar's belief that your money should help you achieve your goals and reach financial harmony, rather than being the point of stress that it has always been. Coming from Switzerland, the country of banks, Edgar is fueled by the desire to bring a premium service to the digital banking and wealth management landscape. Edgar brings his skills developed as a financial engineer and consultant at McKinsey and Company to design ikigai to better take care of our own finances.

What is equity crowdfunding?

When you invest in equity, you buy a percentage share of a business. When the business you have backed goes on to IPO or ‘exit’ (by floating on the stock market or being bought by another company), hopefully those shares that you bought will be of a higher value than when you invested and you will get a return on your investment. This in turn gives you a profit. Of course, investing in a startup business is not without risk and there is a significant chance of loss of your investment or dilution. You can read more about the risks of equity crowdfunding on the CrowdCube website.
