Embark Group is the holding company for a range of financial services businesses in the UK, and in the future internationally.

Today we are responsible for £15bn on behalf of 140,000 consumers and power the pensions of several well-known digital wealth platforms.
We have a strong track record of applying the very latest technology to our businesses, alongside smart capital and even smarter people to help each of our businesses grow. We are always seeking new opportunities to invest and grow, and constantly consider wholly-owned, minority interest and joint venture investments that can generate value independently or in tandem with other assets in our portfolio.
