Untamed Marketing began as a trio of pension nerds. With big ideas and a thirst for knowledge, fun-loving freedom seekers who love an evening at the beach, surfing, swilling gin and letting creativity flow.

It was in those moments the ideas for Untamed began. We realise how much of the pensions world want to make a positive difference. But not everyone has the marketing team, budget, or expertise to make it happen. We want to bridge the gap...

So, why Untamed? We're not wild, but we like to push boundaries. For far too long the industry has hidden behind complexity, T&Cs and a compliance team with a disposition to err so far on the side of caution that any real value is lost. It doesn’t have to be that way.

We always start with a chat about your scheme or business and take a look at your strategic business plans. We can get a feel for how we’re able to support you, and you can get an idea about whether we’re the right fit for your business.

Then we’ll talk plans and budget. We’ll help you work out how you can get the most for your money – whether your focus should be on strategic marketing plans, content creation or building your public profile – or all three.

Ask questions, bounce ideas or talk specifics - we're all ears
