Pebble Finance, a registered investment advisor, introduces an innovative app designed for digital natives that helps address the investing challenges faced by individuals who are often overlooked due to their limited financial resources. Whether driven by personal values or the desire to capitalize on emerging trends, these investors hold strong opinions but may lack the means to be recognized in traditional financial circles. Pebble Finance aims to bridge this gap by offering a range of innovative features that empower these investors to take control of their investment journey.
About Pebble Finance
Pebble Finance was founded In 2021 by Justin Whitehead and James Esdaile, who are two fintech veterans that shared a dissatisfaction with the outdated investing experience. They recognized the industry's reliance on relationships, products with hidden fees, and aggressive sales tactics, prompting them to seek a solution.
Through exploration, they conceived the idea of "Pebble," a new approach to diversification that puts investors in control. They envisioned a platform that would empower individuals to own and manage their investments while helping to simplify the diversification process.
