CEO Brandon Frere on Expanding Financial Services and Fueling the Engines of Success
May 17, 2018, 03:30 ET
PETALUMA, Calif., May 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Improving efficiency and innovating in the arena of financial services may mean making those services more accessible to more people. Those who traditionally didn't have access to banks, credit, or other types of services may be benefiting from advancements being made in the industry. These populations may have previously been marginalized from any given financial service for a mix of reasons: availability of the service in their region, the uniqueness of their financial needs, or services not allowing for certain physical limitations or disabilities. Brandon Frere, founder and CEO of Frere Enterprises, is inspired by the possibility of financial services and fintech ventures to make life easier for countless people.
"Fintech should be about making borrowers more empowered, which includes bringing financial services to folks who may have never had a chance to utilize them," said Frere. "Just creating new ways of delivering service to people could be life-changing for whole sections of the population."
"Access" in this particular usage can be a wide-encompassing term. It may mean expanding accommodations for various levels of hearing or vision, which certain financial institutions have already implemented—but opportunities to expand these can be an entrepreneurial inspiration as well as a moral imperative. It may also mean bringing certain financial products to individuals and businesses that may have been previously overlooked: unusual clients, unconventional entrepreneurs, and quirky organizations. Entrepreneurs can also keep finding new corners to develop in terms of access.
"Financial services make things possible: whether it's buying a home, starting a business, building a retirement, or investing to create wealth. These are often what lay the foundation for great things," said Frere. "As more people have the ability to access a service, they can keep fueling the engine of their own success."
