Our Story


Our purpose is to build a better financial society with technological innovation.

Soar was formed in 2017 by award-winning Scottish entrepreneur, Andrew Duncan.

Andrew was leading Soar's sister company SwarmOnline when the idea for Soar was born. SwarmOnline are expert providers of bespoke cloud and mobile apps, and when a number of credit unions approached Swarm about building mobile apps for them, Andrew realised that this type of technology was really lacking in the ethical sector. From this realisation, Soar was formed and we have been working with ethical institutions ever since to build a better financial society where credit unions, building societies and responsible lenders can gain access to innovative technology. 

From a team of one in 2018, to a team of fourteen in 2019, Soar has grown at an amazing rate and we continue to provide innovative products and services to ethical financial institutions. 
We offer an affordable solution so that they can join the smartphone revolution safely and securely with our must-have technology. Soar is designed to enable those in the ethical finance sector to better meet the demands of their communities and to prosper all while making their world simpler. 

 

We help you reach tomorrow's members, today. 

We're proud of how much we have
achieved in such a short space of time.
