Jiko is a financial technology company that offers a new way to store and move money, designed to create a fluid and rewarding banking experience for all. In September of 2020, Jiko became the first Fintech to acquire a national bank, in addition to being a licensed broker dealer. Prior to that accomplishment, Jiko spent 4 years developing a full-stack technology infrastructure that merges payment rails with real-time, 24/7 principal trading capabilities. This innovative combination is the backbone for Jiko’s transparent and rewarding model, which doesn’t use deposited funds for it’s own investment purposes. Instead, customer’s funds are transparently invested in U.S. government-backed Treasury Bills (T-Bills), enabling cutting edge features such as virtual cards, tokenized bank account numbers, automated investments in T-Bills, and cashback on debit purchases. This model is made available to individuals through a mobile banking app, and to business partners through it’s API platform. Jiko is a creative and hard-working team with cross-functional expertise in technology, trading, payment, and creative fields. The team is headquartered in Berkeley, California, with offices in New York City and Reykjavik, Iceland. Since its inception in 2016, Jiko has raised over $50M from trusted investors such as Upfront Ventures, Wafra Inc., Radicle Impact, NYCA Partners, and Anthem Ventures among others.
