Dvdendo was founded by an experienced group of financial and technology professionals. Headquartered in Miami, we’re passionate about making saving easy and automatic—and making professional investment advice available to everyone.
Our co-founders, Santiago Maggi and Matthew Meehan, came up with the idea as a partial solution to help close the staggering wealth gap. Dvdendo was born out of Santiago’s and Matthew’s desire to help underserved communities have their own investment accounts.
“One of the biggest contributors to the massive wealth gap in this country,” Matthew said in a recent interview, “is that most wealthy people invest their money in stocks, bonds, and real estate, while middle- and lower-income earners have historically left a big chunk of their savings idling away in a bank account.”
By lowering the threshold to start investing, and making the investing process easy, inexpensive, and a possibility with even just $5, Dvdendo can play an important role in reducing that gap.
