Money Alive Team

Money Alive was inspired by the belief that Better Information leads to Better Decisions and a Better Financial Life.

Our business was founded by Andy Kirby, John Glover, Mark Thewlis, Ian Beestin and Paula Widdowson. We have all enjoyed successful careers in financial services and business and we have a passion to help you engage in and become more knowledgeable about your financial life. Our ambition is for Money Alive to become your trusted and impartial partner and, through our educational video journeys, to help you enjoy a better financial retirement.

Our first video journey is aimed at people aged 55+ who are considering their retirement options and how best to use their pension pots. We have created our videos and animations to deliver information in a way which brings the options to life in an engaging and structured way, aiming to increase your knowledge and help you make a good decision.

We aim to bring you relevant, up to date, accurate information and all our educational videos are written by subject experts and accredited by the Pensions Management Institute. We hope that having been on your educational journey, you are in a better position to make a good decision about how to take your pension pot - perhaps seeking further guidance or advice or having the confidence to make your own decision. However, you use the information provided on the website at your own risk and we do not accept any liability for your decisions.

We refer and offer links to other websites but we are not responsible for their content.
