Momentum Financial Technology was founded by our CEO Toby Hughes in January 2011, and was originally registered under the name Blue Speck Media.

The company quickly grew as we discovered a need in the market for technology that could help people manage their money, plan ahead for the future and find the right financial products, advice or services to suit their needs.

In 2012 Blue Speck Media became a trading style of Blue Speck Financial. In November 2012 Blue Speck Financial launched, followed by Moneyhub in Spring 2013.

Our Moneyhub technology went on to win several awards in 2014, including Best of Show at FinovateEurope.

In spring-summer 2014 the company was acquired by Momentum UK and rebranded as Momentum Financial Technology in March 2015.

Momentum UK forms part of MMI Holdings Ltd (MMI), one of the largest financial services groups in South Africa. The group’s vision is to enhance the lifetime financial wellness of people, their communities and their businesses.

Momentum Financial Technology operates three key brands, Moneyhub, and Blue Speck Media, from its main operational and R&D facility in central Bristol.
