If you're a regular listener of Jill on Money, then you know we're fans of the FinTech world.  Whether it's Betterment or Rebalance IRA, we're all for the combination of finance and technology.  Now you can add Motif to that list.

Led by founder and CEO Hardeep Walia, Motif is a next-generation online broker whose mission is to simplify complex investment products and make them universally accessible.  The company's flagship product allows individual investors to act intuitively on their insights by turning them into a "motif" of stocks...basically purchasing a basket of stocks based on a theme.  Motif also offers a variety of retirement and non-retirement products, including:

  • Traditional IRAs
  • Roth IRAs
  • SEP IRAs
  • Trust Accounts
  • Guardian Accounts

Before launching Motif, Hardeep spent more than six years at Microsoft, where he was General Manager of the company's enterprise services business.  He also serves on FINRA's Technology Advisory Committee.

Now here's the deal...Mark and I were promised some Motif gear...a hat, a hoodie, a vest, anything...unless the package was stolen, it still hasn't arrived.  As of now, we're big fans, but if something doesn't arrive soon, that could change :)  Just saying...
