The Verve Foundation

The Verve Foundation was set up as a not-for-profit back in 2021 with a very specific mission in mind; to help those who were facing unemployment in the many industries that had ground to a halt due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Fast forward to today and the Foundation now exists as a central place to do good in the financial services industry. With our initiatives growing and a clear vision in mind, we’re working hard to invest in the future of finance and make it a far more diverse, accessible, innovative and welcoming place to be.ย
