Leading online broker recognized for innovation in fintech for third consecutive year
San Mateo, CA – June 8, 2016 – Motif, a next generation online broker pioneering thematic investing, was named to this year’s CNBC’s Disruptor 50 list for the third consecutive time. The company’s unique approach to investing has been recognized again by CNBC as one of the world’s most ambitious and innovative companies changing the overall business landscape. Notably, Motif is the only company in the fintech space to rank consecutively on the Disruptor 50 list in the past three years.
“We’re very proud to be continuously recognized by CNBC for our hard work and commitment to making smart investing easy,” said Hardeep Walia, Founder and CEO of Motif. “The CNBC Disruptor list is a well-respected industry benchmark and we’re honored to be ranked on the list for the past three years.”
Within the past year, Motif has continually innovated while aiming to make all aspects of investing transparent, empower investors to invest intelligently and remove the complexity that can get in the way of the investor’s best interest. Motif’s flagship product offers self-directed retail investors the opportunity to buy “motifs” — intelligently weighted baskets of stocks built around themes, investing styles or multi-asset models. To date, over 150 professional and nearly 180,000 community motifs have been created which investors can purchase for a total commission of $9.95 per motif.
Additionally in the past year, the company launched its investment advisor subsidiary, Motif Capital, which has partnered with major financial institutions such as Goldman Sachs, Global Atlantic, and US Bank’s ultra high net worth arm, Ascent Private Capital Management, to help broaden Motif’s financial products and allows the company’s unique investment philosophy to be available throughout the financial industry.
Motif Investing was selected from 750 nominated companies that were ranked based on CNBC’s proprietary blend of quantitative and qualitative inputs.
