Wealthfront: Transforming From a Robo-Advisor to a Digital Bank

The battle to become the primary financial relationship for consumers continues to intensify, with the lines blurring between traditional banks, digital banks, robo-advisors and tech firms offering financial services.

With the COVID-19 crisis driving consumers to digital banking options, the desire for new ways to bank became a necessity. Consumers are finding alternatives to the bank that has dozens or hundreds of branches. From low cost options designed to replace check cashing facilities to more sophisticated alternatives that are focused on investment accumulation, the marketplace is crowded.

We are fortunate to have Andy Rachleff, co-founder and executive chairman of Wealthfront on the show today. Along with Dan Carroll, Andy has built Wealthfront into one of the premier financial services organizations, expanding from a foundation of digital wealth management to providing high interest digital savings and a new checking option.
