Income& Gives Regular Investors Access To Mortgage-Backed Securities

The Benzinga Global Fintech Awards are a yearly showcase of the best and brightest in fintech. In preparation for its biggest installment yet in May 2018, we're profiling the companies competing for the BZ Awards.

Our next feature is on Income&.

What does your company do? What unique problem does it solve?

Keith Meyer, CMO, co-founder: At Income&, we're reinventing the idea of fixed-income investing. With 10,000 baby boomers retiring every day, millions of Americans seek the safety of a low-risk, high-yield fixed-income product as part of a diversified portfolio. That's why we launched the PRIMO, a security backed by a single, high-quality residential mortgage. Our next generation marketplace gives investors full visibility into individual mortgage loan data and performance, and the ability to easily invest in PRIMOs that fit their risk profile.

Who are your customers?

Our primary target market is baby boomers, particularly those consumers near retirement or in retirement and seeking good returns with low-risk. Initially only available to accredited investors, in a year or so we plan to open up PRIMOs to everyone.

How long have you been in business?

PRIMOs have been available to accredited investors since May 2016. Income& was incorporated in November 2014.

Where are you located?

San Francisco, CA.
