We apply software to the financial services industry, automate investment tools that are typically reserved for the ultra-wealthy, and deliver them at prices affordable to everyone. In just over four years, we have grown to manage over $4 billion in assets with clients across the U.S. With our clients' trust, we believe we can and will change this industry.
