Idea

People are bad with money! UK individuals struggle to:

• Save money (average saved is just 1.7% of post tax income)

• Create and stick to a budget (21% of workforce in overdraft 1 week after payday)

Squirrel is a Barclays Techstars company on a mission to stop people running out of money, and make achieving financial goals easy.

While banks continue to make spending easier and offer overdrafts and credit to monetize, Squirrel makes it harder to spend money when you don’t need to, and makes money through subscription - helping customers stick to a budget and build savings!

How it works

Squirrel is a Barclays-held account that splits your salary up into bills, savings, and a weekly allowance. You can rest assured knowing your bills are paid, your savings are automatically kept on track, and you always have spending money every week.
