Fintech platform Salary Finance has launched its services in the US following the completion of a $20m funding round, which was led by Blenheim Chalcot and Legal & General.

Founded around three years ago, Salary Finance now supports nearly one million employees in the UK.

It has entered into partnerships with multiple companies such as BT, Virgin Active, Hospital Trusts enabling the employees to reduce their debt, improve saving habits and develop employee credit scores.

Salary Finance claims that the UK employees availing its services saved on average $785 in interest annually and paid off their debts around six to 12 months ahead.

With an office in Boston, Massachusetts, the company aims to serve US employees looking to addressing their financial challenges including personal debt.

Salary Finance CEO Asesh Sarkar said: “Companies are taking notice of the impact financial stress can have on employees, and Salary Finance presents a unique solution to bring financial wellbeing to the American workforce.
