Louis Beryl, CEO of Earnest, recently shared this note in an email with clients to share our first annual Year in Review for 2015. Take a look — our Earnest community might just surprise you!
I want to start this note by sincerely thanking you for being a client of Earnest and trusting us as your financial partner. Thanks to thousands and thousands of people like yourself, 2015 was a banner year.
Our clients paid down more than $23 million of their student loans, and achieved major life goals — you remodeled homes, got married, traveled the world, and accelerated careers. And on our end, we hired more than 150 new people to continue building the modern bank for the next generation — incredibly bright Earnies who speak 21 different languages and come from 15 different countries.
How do I know all these stats? We just published our first annual Year in Review for 2015, and I’d love if you checked it out. You’ll see just how much we all spent on Netflix (hint: more than $1 million in 2015!) and tons more.
So what happens in 2016? We are hard at work building additional innovative financial products and features to better serve every one of you over your life, and I can’t wait to tell you more about them as the year rolls along.
