Chester fintech finds new home to accommodate growth
Chester-based fintech company Businesscomparison.com has moved to a larger office after growing its user base to 30,000 visitors a month.
The online firm, which helps small business owners to compare deals on bank accounts, commercial mortgages, business energy and insurance, is based in the historic Steam Mill – a landmark listed building in the centre of Chester.
The refurbished office space includes a living wall, library room and a graffiti wall. Staff have a gaming area to unwind in and there are informal break-out spaces.
Since launching in 2015, the digital company, which won the Newcomer category at this year’s Business Masters Awards, has expanded steadily to eight staff.
Philip Brennan, head of Businesscomparison.com, said: “The team have worked hard to develop and grow a business that we’re all really proud of. The move to larger premises represents the growth of the company and we’re excited to fill the extra space with more staff over the coming years as we look to expand and offer even more products to business customers.
“We launched Businessnesscomparison.com just over two years ago, as an online comparison tool for business owners to find the best deals on products and services that are essential to their daily running and success. As a growing company, we know the financial pressures faced by SMEs up and down the country and tailor our website to make life easier for them at a time when there is uncertainty in the business community.
“Careful planning has gone into the design of the new office space that allows us to nurture partnerships and create new business opportunities. We’re proud of our heritage in Chester and the look and feel of the new space has been designed with our brand in mind. We’re very excited about the future.”
