  • What we believe

    Tumelo is an investor-backed, impact-driven, financial technology firm. In our vision, a decade from now, every investor will be empowered to use their shareholder rights.

    We believe the modern shareholder ownership system is broken. Trillions of pounds are invested every year by people who don’t even know what investment means, where their money is going, how it affects the world or their financial outcome, or what they can do about any of that.

    We believe investors in the stock market (pension members, retail investors and asset owners, like trustees) should be aware of and connected to the companies they are invested in; should have influence and a voice at those companies; should have access to their shareholder rights. We believe big companies have the power to break or make our planet. What shareholders demand, and hold them accountable for, really matters.

    Big change takes time but we are patient and ambitious in equal measure; influencing the system, building a movement, empowering the world.  Our mission is to build and scale the technology to make that possible.

    What we do

    We partner with UK’s largest investment and pension platforms, empowering them to provide their investors with  transparency  over the companies they own and a  shareholder voice  on issues they care about, whether that be gender equality, human rights or climate change. We build APIs and beautiful user interfaces to deliver a totally unique user experience. We give platforms better engagement, acquisition and retention, coupled with the power to create a sustainable investment system for us all.

    We’re a close-knit, ambitious team. We’re based mostly in and around the South West. We work in an agile manner; championing transparency and flexibility while prioritising open communication. We love food, rounders, board games and team holidays (everything from canvas painting to cliff jumping in Devon).

    Our Values:

  • We do our best work to achieve our vision
  • We pull together to achieve more for users & customers
  • We are masters of prioritisation
  • We adapt relentlessly
  • We give each other feedback to move each other forwards
  • We trust each other to drive towards success
