Origins

An unlikely combination.

Space was formed when an IFA and Creative Director joined forces to realise an idea: To bring together industry, technical and creative brains to help the financial services industry build more rewarding relationships with their customers.

Today we have over 30 of these brains, all bouncing off each other in response to our client’s challenges. They’re all very different animals. But they all share the same passion for all things financial.

We’ve built everything from underwriting engines to wealth management platforms and from advertising campaigns to global brands.

Our unique blend of skills means we’re able to get to grips with projects faster, help you identify opportunities quicker and exploit them to their maximum potential.

Expertise
