Driven by Creative industry pioneers, our story is one of growth, continual innovation and over a decade in the making. And we’re not standing still. After all, where we’ve come from is important but it’s nowhere as exciting as where we’re heading or what we can do for you.

Company Timeline

Creative has grown into a diverse financial services business with a national presence, employing around 100 experts who help people address their personal and corporate financial needs. Here’s a snapshot of where we’ve come from:

2020
On 3 August 2020, Creative Benefits, comprised of Creative Auto Enrolment, Creative Employee Benefits and Creative Wealth Management, rebrands to Creative. Creative continues to offer the same diverse financial services expertise under a simplier, clearer brand designed to reflect the organisation as it stands today
In March 2020, the UK went into an unprecendented lockdown to reduce the spread of COVID-19. In expectation of these events, we implemented our business continuity strategy in advance. Our services remain wholly uncompromised with no reductions in our capacity. We’ve optimised the delivery of our services to all clients, offering our full suite of advice and consultancy services in a COVID-19-safe way. See our COVID-19 Resource Centre for more information.
