The Verve Foundation

Investing in the future of finance

Our company values are; world-class quality, bold innovation and a ‘got-your-back’ team ethic and our charitable activities are no different.With the launch of our first ever not-for-profit initiative ‘We Are Change’ as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, applications came flooding in and The Verve Foundation was born. With the aim of creating and investing further into the future of finance, we hope to broaden our support with new initiatives, as and when they are needed.

So, watch this space!
