Robinhood Co-Founder Vladimir Tenev Talks Young Investors With Jim Cramer


On CNBC's "Mad Money" Thursday night, Jim Cramer interviewed Robinhood co-founder Vladimir Tenev about how the brokerage app is changing equity markets.

Tenev shared some insights that challenge common assumptions about Robinhood users. He noted that "while people equate being young with day trading, our data doesn't show that." Tenev also noted that users are "by and large depositing funds and buying companies long-term" like traditional buy-and-hold investors. 

The Robinhood co-founder discussed his company's recent addition of fractional share trading and scheduled deposit capabilities, saying that these features "can help turn first-time investors into long-term investors." 

Finally, when asked about Robinhood's plans for an initial public offering, Tenev said that the company was "well-capitalized" and "thinks there's a huge growth opportunity ahead of us," but declined to discuss IPO plans in any detail.
