Thomas Smyth
Co-Founder & CEOTrim
Thomas conceived of Trim as a solution to the screwed-up incentives in the financial services marketplace. Financial institutions are incentivized to rip off their customers at every opportunity. Consumers are getting hosed -- for example, paying more than $23 billion in overdraft fees annually. Trim fights to get a fair deal for its users in the world of personal finance. Thomas was previously an investor at Core Innovation Capital, an early-stage venture capital firm focused entirely on financial technology investments. While at Core, Thomas worked on investments in NerdWallet, a website for financial advice, and CoverHound, an online comparison-shopping marketplace for insurance. Thomas graduated from Yale University.
