Market

The FinTech sector is on fire. The digital retail brokerage revolution that began in 2013 with the advent of Robinhood now includes major competitors enjoying multi-billion dollar valuations.

Yes, Financial Services is a crowded market – but the rock-solid MOBILE generation is a niche that is ~78% unaddressed. We estimate the total addressable market of about 90 million Millennials and Gen Zs, 18-39, is only ~22% penetrated. Translation: 70M+ new investors within our target have not yet invested OR landed on their investing app of choice.

Business Model

FinTron has 5 distinct revenue streams. We plan for our greatest source of revenue to come from our $3 monthly recurring subscription fee.

As our users deposit funds and grow their accounts we begin earning greater and greater revenue on assets under management. We earn about 1% on all cash balances held in our brokerage accounts and about half of the effective federal funds rate[1] on all cash held in our bank accounts. When your extra cash sits in your bank or brokerage account, our partners take this cash and reinvest it or lend it out and we earn a bit of what they make on these investing activities.

We also plan to generate revenues called “interchange” when our clients make banking transactions from their debit cards. Ever encounter a minimum card purchase amount at a gas station or convenience store? Well, the owner of the gas station or convenience shop is charged a transaction fee every time a customer makes a purchase using a card. These fees can be minimum fees of 50 cents to a dollar or a percentage of the transaction total... Our partner bank makes cash from these fees and we earn a bit off the top.

We DO NOT profit from payment for order flow[2].
