About

Money Check – A New Kind of Finance Website

Money Check is a fast-growing online publication launched in 2018 with the aim of covering personal finance and investment news for the UK.

Our goal is to simplify and explain in clear language, what can be a confusing jumble of terms and concepts. We hope to provide clear, unbiased facts so people can make up their own mind about important financial decisions.

We have identified a lack of quality in some financial websites within the UK, too many of the established order rely on click-bait and low quality information designed to funnel traffic to advertisers and affiliate partners. We aim to change that with unwavering dedication to quality reporting and factual articles.

We also see a gap in the market for new technologies designed to shake up the financial market. As such, we will be covering new companies, websites and apps within the Fintech space and aiming our content at an audience who are more tech-savvy and have a thirst for creating financial independence for themselves.

Money Check was founded by Oliver Dale, a technology entrepreneur with over 15 years experience online building profitable businesses. Oliver also founded the popular Fintech and Blockchain News site, Blockonomi.

MoneyCheck’s parent company is Kooc Media Ltd. An online media company based in Manchester, UK. Company No.05695741

: News Editor

Nicholas Say grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan with a father that would read him the Wall St. Journal along side of other bed-time fare. He has traveled extensively, and been lucky enough to study a changing global economy in person. Nicholas spent many years in the Southern Cone of South America, sometimes in the middle of the countryside where livestock starts its journey to all points of the globe. Today he is thoroughly bemused with the stance that Central Banks have taken in the wake of the 2008 meltdown. There is no telling what will come out of the global financial system next, but he is glad that he lives somewhere that gold can be bought and sold readily!

Nicholas is an experienced finance-related journalist and heads up the news team.
