U.S.-Based Neobank & Financial Services Platform Fair Secured $20 Million; Announces Early Bird Access & Official Public Launch

 

Fair, a multilingual neobank and financial services platform, announced on Tuesday it secured $20 million and is planning to open early bird membership enrollment in March, with a public launch in April. 

Fair describes itself as a pro-consumer, equity-based, mobile-first alternative to traditional banking. The company stated it believes banking should be trustworthy and transactions transparent. Interest-free loans for our members and shared equity in principled investments are just a few of the ways Fair delivers ethical banking solutions.

We offer all the services you expect from a bank — debit cards, savings, and bill payments — only without added fees and fine print. Digital banking services with a human touch.”

Fair claims that it prides itself on ethical, transparent banking and eliminates all banking fees via a membership model with offerings including, but not limited to:

  • Free account-to-account international money transfers
  • Free ATMs and teller services and conventional banks and retail outlets
  • Early access to paycheck funds (two days)
  • Instant, interest-free microloans (buy now pay later at the register)
  • Interest-free loans for home, auto, and business (all loans are equity-based)
  • Debit card accounts for kids
  • Up to 2% annual dividend account
  • Available in English, Spanish, and Arabic

While sharing more details about the platform’s offering, Khalid Parekh, Founder and CEO of Fair, stated:

“Understanding complex fee structures and the fine print is difficult for many people born in the U.S. Qualifying for a business loan is impossible for an immigrant with no credit history. Falling into a cycle of debt is inevitable with high-interest loans. Part of the vision for Fair is to address these inequities.”

To join, members will pay a one-time annual or monthly membership fee based on their preference. Fair banking services are provided by Coastal Community Bank, Member FDIC and will offer MasterCard Debit Card.
