Traditional banking has often been rigid, sticking to familiar paths and overlooking the diverse financial needs of different communities. “We’re facing a full-blown crisis when it comes to financial inclusion,” says Gretchen C. Bellamy, Esq., from Bellamy Consulting. In fact, 70% of Americans report being stressed about finances, with 52% stating that their financial stress has gone up since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic (Wronski, L., 2023).
That’s why Wysh and Bellamy Consulting have teamed up to take a different route—one focusing on innovation, inclusion, and empowerment. The result of that commitment is Savings+, a first-of-its-kind product in the US that marries a high-yield savings account with exclusive micro life insurance benefit.
“Savings+ represents an unprecedented, inspired effort to fundamentally rewrite the narrative on financial inclusion in this country,” says Bellamy. “It has the potential to truly serve as a game-changer.”
