What is Piggyvest?

Piggyvest is a savings and investment platform that was launched in 2016 by the trio of Odunayo Eweniyi, Somto Ifezue and Joshua Chibueze, who at Covenant University and worked on many projects together.

Initially launched in 2016 as piggybank, which was a savings only platform, it rebranded to Piggyvest in 2019, which as well as helping customers save money, also helps them make money.

Piggyvest has put in place this sort of system, that enables users to easily put money in, but make it otherwise difficult to withdraw money before the withdrawal date set by you.

Apart from just saving, Piggyvest also allows you to earn some interest on your savings, as well as invest on the platform and making passive income.

Some people might ask, “What is the difference between piggyvest and a normal bank?”. The difference is that piggyvest locks your fund and doesn’t allow you to withdraw it, until the date that you set.

This makes it easier for people to save, especially since withdrawing your money before set date will attract a 5% penalty fee on Piggyvest.
