Greg Konfederak and Kris Krupecki on building a niche financial advice business for Eastern Europeans living in the UK - MAF212

This week my guests are Greg Konfederak and Kris Krupecki from Profit Tree.

It's a financial advice firm they set up specifically for Eastern Europeans living in the UK. We chat about how Greg and Kris came up with the idea, built their business and the challenges they faced.

Welcome to episode 212 of the Marketing and Finance Podcast.

We chat about:

  • Where the inspiration for Profit Tree came from
  • Why customers struggle with complex financial language
  • The services Profit Tree provides
  • How Profit Tree overcome customer objections
  • How they launched Profit Tree in the UK
  • The company’s approach to marketing

Who are Greg Konfederak and Kris Krupecki?

Greg now splits his time between London and the Warsaw office. He previously worked in construction, but the credit crunch made things much harder, which led to co-founding Profit Tree. They act as brokers for mainly Eastern Europeans living in the UK, supporting people to make the right insurance choices.

Kris first learned about financial services at university in 2000, where he was studying political science. In 2009 he got into the financial services industry in the UK. The unique challenges faced by the business founders, such as buying a house or securing car insurance, led them to set up Profit Tree.
