Hi Chris
I recently saw your success in acquiring the Just Eat pension business. Congratulations on this. Are you able to share with us the number of pensions that you currently manage and how these figures are growing?

Hi Jeremy, thanks very much for your question. We currently manage 11.6k pensions, vs. 7.0k at the start of the year. Investors will receive our Q2 update in the next few days which contains further information about our progress. Many thanks, Chris

Thanks very much for letting us know!

Hi @chriseastwood,

Just wondering if you’re able to give an update on when EIS certificates will be made available to crowdfunding investors?

Many thanks,
Robi

Hi Robi

I’m hoping Crowdcube will provide these soon - I have followed up with them recently. We have provided the information they need to process the certificates so shouldn’t be too long!

Thanks for your patience,
Chris

Hi @chriseastwood I was looking through the boring money website at pension providers and was pleased to see Penfold on the list, but it was one of the only ones without a review (which is a shame!) So I tried to click through to write one but couldn’t find anywhere to do it. Do you know how we can? Is boring money a good platform where investors should be encouraged to write a review as we have been with trust pilot, Google etc? I think it could bring more customers to the platform. Cheers :grinning:

Hi Luke, thanks for the message. At the top of the review page by the logo there is a hyperlink “Leave a review”. It’s in white so it’s not particularly visible but that should let you write one. We’re planning to reach out to our customers to encourage them to leave a review here as this is the main way in which the Boring Money rating can be increased. So yes, please do drop a review there! Thanks very much, Chris

Thanks Chris, all done. I saw the link in the Penfold email so went through that. Thought Hollys 3 and a half stars for you guys was a bit harsh really, couldn’t see a convincing justification for that. Hopefully more customers leave nice reviews and the big 5 stars! Enjoyed the £40,000 giveaway video by the way, that must have been a lovely call to make!
