All of us at SoFi are humbled to reach this significant milestone in our journey of building a generational company, and we are grateful for the countless individuals who have contributed to advancing our mission of empowering everyone to achieve financial independence to realize their ambitions.”
SoFi plans to expand its services geographically and build the first “digital one-stop-shop for members to borrow, save, spend, invest and protect their money.”
Chamath Palihapitiya, founder and CEO of Social Capital, said:
“As a leader and innovator in the financial technology space, SoFi has the opportunity to completely transform the consumer financial services industry with its digital-first ecosystem of offerings. We are excited to work with Anthony and his talented team as SoFi begins its next chapter as a public company.”
