About Us

Aurae (pronounced Aura) began with a simple vision: Enable the world’s most successful people to have an artful, personalized expression of the wealth, success and status they’ve earned. Aurae members are among the world’s elite and our lifestyle memberships enable our clients to experience their wealth in new and exciting ways through our experiential benefits.

Christopher Scanlon


Christopher Scanlon created Aurae Lifestyle because he wanted a membership program that celebrated individuality, legacy and personal success. Chris was fortunate enough to meet a number of successful individuals and he came across an interesting insight. All of their personal stories were unique, all of their lifestyles were bespoke; however, all of their credit & debit cards looked exactly the same.

Then the epiphany hit. Why not create a fully bespoke card program with comprehensive lifestyle management services and have the card elegantly celebrate an individual’s success and legacy? Taking it a step further - to really cement legacy, why not issue bespoke Mastercards made out of solid gold? After two years of product development, patents and numerous financial services approvals, Chris and his team created the Aurae Lifestyle Program. The world’s first bespoke lifestyle management and card membership program.

Chris takes personal pride in watching members experience their personal Aurae on a daily basis.

Prior to starting Aurae Lifestyle, Mr. Scanlon headed up Card Limited Corporation (CLC), a leading issuer of prepaid debit cards and innovative credit card solutions. Prior to CLC, he founded PMA Media Group, Inc an interactive marketing agency. A serial entrepreneur, Mr. Scanlon has built and sold four other businesses in product distribution and fulfillment and interactive marketing. Mr. Scanlon holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Utah Valley University and is a member of the Utah Jazz Advisory Board.
