Stash is pioneering the future of personal finance with the first financial subscription that helps regular people create better lives. Ever felt that wealth building was not accessible? Or known that access to finance was the gateway to a better life and wondered why that gateway was not open for everyone? We do.. A lot… This is why we created Stock-Back, an industry first feature to let Main Street learn about Wall Street from their spend without having to change their lives.  From budgeting to saving for retirement, Stash unites banking, investing, and advice all in one app that has helped over 4.5M people aspire to financial goals and make progress towards financial freedom.  The average Stasher has 6x more savings than the average American to take them through tough times. But we do not want to stop there when more than 100M Americans need it!
