Mogo Inc. (NASDAQ:MOGO) (TSX:MOGO) (“Mogo” or the “Company”), a digital payments and financial technology company, announced today a new pilot with Sun Life to bring Mogo’s saving and investing app, Moka, to more than 20,000 Sun Life Group Retirement Services members. The app automatically rounds up daily purchases and invests the spare change in personalized, diversified portfolios of low-cost Exchange-Traded Funds. By using the Moka app, Sun Life members will be able to easily grow their savings each month. Members can help further grow their savings with roundup multipliers, recurring deposits and exclusive cashback offers from popular brands partnered with Moka.
