Unique Digital Mobile Platform Enables Clients to Spend, Invest and Save with FDIC-Insured Accounts
Proprietary, Internally Developed App Completes Beta Testing;
Now Available at Apple and Google App Stores for iOS and Android Devices
SAN CLEMENTE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Marygold Companies, Inc. (“TMC,” or the “Company”) (NYSE American: MGLD), a diversified global holding firm, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Denver-based Marygold & Co., has formally launched its banking and financial services app, a digital platform that combines payments, savings and investing.
“We believe the app represents the future of finance, allowing clients to take complete control of their financial lives,” said Nicholas Gerber, TMC’s Chief Executive Officer. “I appreciate the patience and loyalty of our shareholders as we invested time and profits into the development of this app over the past several years. I’m confident the wait will be worth it, and equally as important, I’m proud that the entire development was accomplished through the use of funds that have been generated by other TMC operating subsidiaries. Throughout the process, TMC remained debt-free, and shareholders’ equity increased year-over-year.”
A digital alternative to traditional banking, the app is now available at no cost in both Apple and Google app stores for iOS and Android devices. Also featuring a Mastercard debit card, the app is akin to having a fully secured, private banking experience on a cell phone. It enables the management of finances anywhere, anytime, with no banking fees, minimums or credit checks, and allows clients to organize their finances, while helping them save for personal financial goals.
Additional features of the app include unlimited money pool investing, with customized portfolios and user-selected time-based objectives; PayAnyone™ capability, which authorizes clients to send payments to anyone in the U.S., regardless of whether they have a Marygold & Co. account; and contactless payment options utilizing technology that allows touch-free tap-to-pay transactions from the Marygold & Co. debit card.
TMC established Marygold & Co. (http://marygoldandco.com/), and its wholly owned subsidiary and registered investment advisor, Marygold & Co. Advisory Services, LLC, in the U.S. in 2019 to explore opportunities in the financial technology sector. The new app represents the subsidiary’s initial fintech product offering. Management expects more features and functionality to be added as the app and the market evolve.
In 2021, TMC formed Marygold & Co. (UK) Limited in the U.K., which operates through its acquired subsidiary, Tiger Financial & Asset Management Limited, a U.K. based investment adviser (http://www.tfam.co.uk/). The Company intends to market the new mobile fintech app in the U.K. through the presence of Marygold & Co. (UK) in the coming year.
