Online savings and investment platform, Piggybank.ng, has announced its change of name from Piggybank.ng to PiggyVest — a much broader and holistic financial management platform.

In May 2018, the company closed $1.1 million in seed funding for license acquisition and product development.

In a press release issued today, Co-founder and CEO of the company, Somto Ifezue, said the decision to change the brand’s name was part of its plan “to building the future of savings and investments starting in Nigeria”.

This evolution represents PiggyVest’s determination to ensure that their services continuously evolve with the needs of their customers. They are confident that it will allow them to incorporate a dynamic range of new products into their offerings; to enhance the access their customers have to a variety of financial service solutions; and to ultimately deepen the value they provide to their customers.

Speaking on this announcement, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer, Odunayo Eweniyi, said: “Our new identity is more than just a name change. we believe that it captures the essence of our direction as a business and our focus on the needs of our customers. our new name is symbolic of this direction and it provides a glimpse into the exciting things the future has in store for us and our customers.”
