About page for Sterling Savvy

Sterling Savvy is an independent financial comparison website and educational hub for all things investing, trading, saving, and more.

In 2023, Sterling Savvy emerged from the vision of Will Fenton, a Heriot-Watt University graduate with a Master’s in Economics and Finance.

After gaining extensive experience in London’s financial sector, Will embarked on a mission to share his expertise in personal finance with the UK.

In London, he worked for a “trustworthy and respected provider of news, education and market analysis for the everyday investor”.

He worked alongside some of the biggest financial services companies in the world, giving him experience with trading apps, brokers, online investment platforms, and various budgeting, savings, and banking apps.

His journey, from corporate life to starting a successful music business, shaped his desire to create Sterling Savvy – a platform dedicated to educating and empowering individuals in personal finance.

Understanding the problem

We recognise the UK’s current financial crisis, with soaring mortgage rates and increasing living costs, leaving many struggling to enjoy life’s basics.

  • ‘One in six UK adults have no savings.’ – Money & Pensions Service
  • ‘A quarter of UK adults have less than £100 put away.’ – Money & Pensions Service
  • ‘36% of adults currently paying rent or mortgage payments are finding it very or somewhat difficult to afford them.’ – ONS

Sterling Savvy is here to address these challenges.
