“Everyone Deserves Access to Expert, Honest Advice”
“High-quality personalized financial advice has always been reserved for very few people. But without good advice, even the best financial tools can fail to deliver great financial outcomes,” said Yinon Ravid, CEO of Albert, about the service. “We believe that everyone deserves access to expert, honest money advice, regardless of income or net worth. Providing that advice alongside amazing financial products positions Albert as the all-in-one financial app for the next generation.”
