Folio Financial, Inc. develops and supports digital-first investment platforms for advisors and enterprises, fully integrated with our brokerage, clearing, and custody solutions. After serving as an SEC commissioner, Folio’s founder, Steven Wallman, set out to democratize investing in the late 1990s. His vision of making investing available to all has played out in a series of ongoing innovations with a common theme – access, automation, transparency, and flexibility. We’ve been ahead of the curve since our inception, pioneering technologies including fractional share investing, patented tax management tools, end-to-end online account opening and management, online proxy voting, online private placement investing, and the ability to create portfolios using security, sector, and social-issue filters.
Folio’s businesses include Folio Institutional, focused on providing innovative solutions for RIAs and enterprises; Folio Investing and Folio First for self-directed retail investors; VIA Folio, an end-to-end investing platform for private investments available to both institutional and retail investors; First Affirmative Financial Network, the leading advisor network serving the responsible investment community; and The SRI Conference and Community, the nation’s premier conference on impact investing.
