Start-up Epsor launches a 100% digital employee savings scheme, in partnership with SGSS
Epsor, a fintech specialising in employee savings schemes, today announces the launch of an online offer, in partnership with Societe Generale Securities Services.
Straightforward and specifically designed for very small businesses and SMEs, Epsor is simplifying employee savings schemes, often unfamiliar to company bosses and misunderstood by employees.
With only 15% of French SMEs1 having employee savings schemes – and these often perceived as being complex and bureaucratic by all company stakeholders – Epsor’s ambition is to simplify and democratise procedures relating to these plans.
Whether standard or tailor-made incentive schemes, savings plans (company or pension plans) or contribution schemes, Epsor takes charge of all administrative procedures and offers an innovative service to savers, with personalised educational support and advice on investment choices.
Societe Generale Securities Services supports Epsor as custodian-account keeper of employee savings, while enabling the fintech to access the interfaces of its IT system (API2). By combining Societe Generale’s expertise in securities with the agility of Epsor teams, every small company can access a simple employee savings scheme tailored to its situation.
“We want to provide an innovative and high-performance service for employees and business bosses. To do this, we have chosen to rely on Societe Generale’s solid account keeping and post-market service expertise. This partnership is a very important sign of confidence for our clients”, comments Julien Niquet, co-founder and CEO of Epsor.
Epsor has already serviced dozens of companies and has collected several million euros in assets. The launch of this innovative offer is fully in line with the changes in legislation covering employee savings schemes (Pacte law), which are intended to promote their use within very small businesses and SMEs.
