Through the Onze platform, employees have access to periodic financial check-ups, individual advice with experts and content on finance, it is an “uncomplicated pension plan”, according to Onze.
Onze‘s founder and CEO, Antonio Rocha, is a former partner of McKinsey and brought to fintech the experience of years in the traditional financial market together with Rodrigo Neves, COO of Onze who also worked with Rocha at McKinsey. According to them, Onze’s goal is to reinvent the private pension market, currently concentrated in large Brazilian banks, with a business model that combines technology and flexibility.
