“We want to be a strong, sustainable, high-margin, competitive business that will be stealing market share and printing cash while poets are writing ballads about our smooth lines and great taste. The best way to achieve this is for our people to be passionate about the product, and about delivering the very best to the user - delivering things that they never thought possible, or never imagined they’d want, or have never seen done by a financial services firm in history. This is what our people should be thinking about 24/7 as they use our product, design new products and interface with clients.” - Jesse Powell, CEO & Co-Founder, May 2020"
