FinTech executive, advisor, and angel investor
I’ve worked in financial services as both a direct employee and consultant for the past 20 years. During that time, I’ve worked with hundreds of companies from one-man shops to the largest banks and non-banks in the world. All but a handful of these companies were near exclusively focused on maximizing revenue. From a capitalistic perspective, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. However, from a practical real-world perspective, this revenue maximization nearly universally comes at the expense of and to the detriment of the customer. There are nearly unlimited examples of financial institutions legally (and illegally) working against their customers' best interests.

People Finance is different. Anthony and team are focused on building a successful and profitable company WHILE simultaneously doing right by their customers. Their focus on leveling the playing field for the small/retail customer by building a people first Web3 FinTech that provides best in class products while sharing the upside is unlike any other company I’ve seen.

When I initially invested in People Finance it was only a vision. Now, less than a year later, the team has already built a functioning beta version of their iOS app along with a web portal that enables both stock and crypto trading in an easy-to-use interface. I’m excited to take part in this newest round of funding that will enable the team to launch their banking products, Android app, and dramatically expand their userbase.

Our Team

I started People Finance because through Fraud, Waste, and Abuse, financial institutions such as banks, fintechs, and crypto companies have eroded the trust of their customers over the last several years.


Fraud, Waste, and Abuse by financial institutions have led to an erosion of trust among their customers in recent years. Customer of banks, fintech companies, and crypto companies have all been affected by these issues.

The unchecked risk practices of FinTech and Crypto banking products can put customers' deposits at risk. Companies often do not hold funds in FDIC-insured accounts, leaving customers vulnerable to the volatility of the assets in which their deposits are invested. This practice can lead to liquidity crunches and runs on deposits, leaving customers without access to their own funds. Customers often mistakenly believe that their deposits are safe when, in reality, they are exposed to significant risk.

People Finance is a Financial Technology company that is dedicated to providing customers with the best rates on banking products, while also ensuring full transparency and open access of customer funds. Our products give our members peace of mind and trust in our services by offering 24/7 access and complete visibility into the accounts holding our customers' funds, with no exposure to volatility. We believe in building products that are not just about the best rates, but also about the security, transparency, and accessibility of the member's funds. Our goal is to create a transparent and reliable banking experience for our members.

Our flagship product, a 6% High-Yield Savings Account, offers customers the opportunity to earn a competitive interest rate on their savings, while simultaneously granting liquidity if so needed. The interest rate for this account is based on a combination of factors, including; the Current Federal Funds Rate, short-duration treasuries, and revenues generated from other banking and investment products offered by our company.

We ensure that all of our customers' funds are FDIC insured, providing an additional layer of security and peace of mind. With our flagship product, our customers can enjoy a high-yield savings experience while knowing that their funds are protected and backed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. We are committed to providing customers with a safe and secure banking experience, while also offering them the opportunity to earn a competitive interest rate on their savings.

Why we believe in a member-owned model:

Our goal is to have 25,000 member-owners for several reasons.

First, it aligns the interests of the company and its users. When the company grows, the member's stake grows with it. As member-owners, users have a vested interest in the success of the company and will be more likely to use and promote its products and services. This mutual benefit leads to increased customer loyalty and retention.

Second, the member-owner relationship can create a sense of community and belonging amongst users. Specifically in the People Finance community, we hold regular live AMA (Ask Me Anything) events, and hold chat space in which the community actively converses about the future of the company. Being this type of member-owner gives users a sense of ownership and responsibility for the company, fostering a sense of community among fellow members who share a common interest in all of our mutual success.

Third, creating an active member-owner partnership by hosting a member-only advisory board increases the company's visibility and breeds trust in the people who use our platform. Actively represented members are more likely to share their positive experiences with others, leading to increased brand awareness and a trustworthy reputation.

Having a strong customer base, fostering a sense of community, increasing visibility, instilling trust, and raising capital for the growth of the company are all important for the overall success of People Finance. A loyal and engaged member base leads us to increased revenue and profitability, while a positive reputation can attract new customers and business partners. Building a sense of community among members will also increase customer retention and loyalty. Lastly, raising capital through member-ownership can provide the company with the necessary funds to invest in growth and expansion. Overall, having a goal of 25,000 member-owners is crucial for the long-term sustainability and success of the company.

The total addressable market for our product/service is 98% of Americans who have a demand deposit account, which is approximately 200 million people. Our target market penetration is 1%, which translates to approximately 2 million accounts. This represents a significant opportunity for growth and expansion in the demand deposit and high-yield savings account market.

Our current user base stands at 1,000 individuals, who are part of our limited beta testing phase. Additionally, we have a waitlist of 12,000+ individuals who are interested in our high-yield savings accounts. Notably, we have not spent any money on marketing yet, which is why these numbers represent a strong indication of customer demand for our product

Forward-looking projections cannot be guaranteed.
