REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., July 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Industry-leading digital wealth manager Personal Capital today announced that in June the company surpassed $10 billion in assets under management (AUM), an increase of more than $2 billion since Q4 2018.
"Since day one, we've been committed to helping people understand their money and make better decisions," said Jay Shah, Personal Capital CEO. "In 2009, we created Personal Capital in order to do the right thing by the everyday investor. Ten years later, we're even more committed to helping people by bringing transparency and new perspectives to help people achieve their financial goals." Today, more than two million people use Personal Capital's tools and technology and more than 20,000 clients use the company's wealth management services.
The $10B AUM milestone follows significant company developments in 2019, including securing $64 million in additional funding, launching a private equity offering for clients and introducing Personal Capital Cash. Personal Capital also appointed Porter Gale to the role of Chief Marketing Officer and Kira Wampler to the company's board of directors in the first half of the year. Having led marketing efforts for brands like Virgin America and Lyft respectively, their expertise is influencing the evolution of Personal Capital's brand.
