In 2015, Brandon Krieg noticed that there was a large swath of the public that were underserved in investing. They either didn’t know how to start, or didn’t have the assets to make investing a priority. And they considered meeting an advisor too costly or beyond their means. He decided to found Stash, a mobile app that takes the pain out of entry into investing.
Today, Brett King, Ron Shevlin, Brian Roemmele, and Brandon Krieg talk about why or how that population is underserved, and what Stash is doing to create a comfortable frictionless point of entry for investing.
