Welcome to a new kind of Currency

Welcome to The Currency

The Currency


Welcome to The Currency. We’re glad you made it.

We believe in starting conversations about finances the way real people talk about them. This is a place where we’ll deliver news and views on money and how it shapes life, work, and play. Our aim is to make money conversations more accessible and open.

Why The Currency, you ask?

Currency is an exchange of value, trust, and ideas.

It’s what’s current and relevant to our lives, in the news and in our ambitions.

It’s about living in the now, while planning for the future.

Currency is the energy that powers what’s next in money, life, work and play.

Money is more than a math problem.

Money matters, and talking about it can be empowering. Let’s get started.


PS: We deliver our top takes on the news weekly, straight to your inbox. Give it a try.
