About M1 Finance

M1 Finance is an online financial services company with headquarters in Chicago, IL. The company is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission as a broker dealer and is a member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and the Securities Investor Protection Corporation. M1 Finance is also known as a robo-advisor. In December 2017, it eliminated fees on its platform. As of May 2020, the company had over $1 billion in assets under management, reaching $2 billion in September 2020, and $3 billion four months later in January 2021. In 2020, New York-based Left Lane Capital led a US$33 million Series B round in M1 Finance. As of January 2021, the company was rated 4.6 stars on the iOS App Store and 4.5 stars on Google Play. M1 Finance’s founder, Brian Barnes, said on the company blog that he has been investing since he was in fifth grade. When his teacher assigned his class a mock-investing project, his parents offered to give him a small sum to invest in real markets. As an adult, Barnes wanted an easy way to invest earnings from his first job. When he couldn’t find the features he wanted on any investing platforms currently on the market, he decided to create his own. He launched M1 Finance in 2016 with the ability to automate monthly deposits, maintain a preset portfolio allocation, and make funds easy to withdraw.
