The money management app claims to be “an account on steroids.”

Flex, a new money management service, has launched with the aim of “using technology to solve problems for everyone.” 

The money management service promises customers can open an account in minutes and offers both a free and subscription service. 

FlexPRO costs £5 per month and gives customers access to a virtual card and the use of Apple and Google Pay, features that non-fee-paying customers can’t get. 

Just under the pricing options on the website is a note that says the “pricing and details are representative, but are not a legally binding offer and differ from those offered at the launch of Flex,” meaning that if customers want to scoop FlexPRO for just £5 a month, they might have to move quickly. 

The new fintech was founded by the creator of banking launchpad b.yond, Neil Harris and former Pockit employees, Jos Henson Grič and Paul Smith and Matt Burdis. 

Out of the three former Pockit employees, Burdis remains the only one still listed as working for the fintech. 

Co-founder, Henson Grič, said: “Flex isn’t about doing something new, it’s about doing something that should have been done a long time ago and doing it really well.” 

Harris is chief commercial officer at Global Processing Services and also chairs the board of directors for the Inclusion Foundation, a charity for the financially vulnerable. 

Customers can’t sign up to access Flex yet, but the new fintech is gearing up for an imminent launch.
