UniZest Ltd was founded in September 2015 by Peter Miles and Chris Donnachie to address the problems that international students have in opening bank accounts after they arrive in the UK. With over 35 years of experience in both the student market and financial products, the founders have taken advantage of the FinTech revolution and created the Aspire account.
Amongst other great features the Aspire account can be opened before the student arrives in the UK. Students don’t need to worry any more about waiting several weeks to get an appointment or visiting the bank a couple of times, whilst parents can enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that a key financial service is established and ready to use.
The founders, directors and team at UniZest are experts with many years’ experience in banking, foreign exchange and UK student affairs. The UniZest team also includes international students who have studied in the UK and understand what students need to help them settle in and make the most of their University life.
