Otta's take

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

SoFi started by offering ways for students to secure better financial terms on their loans, and now offers a huge range of personal finance products, including bank accounts, loans, mortgages, investment advice, and investment opportunities. Many customers find they have to go to multiple financial service providers to meet all their finance needs, but SoFi overcomes this issue by putting it all in one place.

Its goal, to cover all the financial bases, sets them apart from many of the traditional banks and even some of their digital competitors, such as Avant, which has chosen to focus on providing credit alternatives. Although it is operating in a competitive market with a lot of big players such as Monzo, Revolut, and Starling, the company has managed to raise huge amounts of funding to support its rapid expansion.

SoFi has focussed on global expansion, moving outside the US, and has made a series of acquisitions to support this - including a Hong Kong-based investment app called 8 Securities. After going public on the New York Stock Exchange via a SPAC merger in June 2021, the company has continued to evolve and release more mission-oriented services into its roster, and strengthened its lending capabilities through a $350 million post-IPO loan. To date, the company has sold over $15 billion in personal loan collateral and continues to strengthen its offering.

Company values

  • Put our member's interests first – if we take care of our members' interests, it will best serve our interests.
  • Run after problems – we must build a culture of people who run after problems in order to ensure we execute with excellence and “things” do not fall through the cracks.
  • Embrace diversity, everyone should feel welcome, included and able to contribute – diversity is a differentiator and our team should reflect society. We should continue to encourage and celebrate diversity.
  • Get to the truth and make principle-based decisions – we can only make the best decisions if we have the right data, all of the perspectives, and if we align on the guiding principles.
  • Make your footprint bigger than your foot – selfless acts are critical to elevate beyond the impact of our collective individual efforts.
  • Do the right thing, if you're not sure, do the harder thing – our business is built on trust and integrity, which requires both adhering to the letter of the law and regulations and doing the right thing for the company and our members..
  • Set ambitious goals, be gritty, be accountable - we must hold ourselves and others accountable for delivering our business objectives, for our culture, and for our member.
  • Take care of other people and help them grow - our people are our greatest differentiator, if we take care of our people, they will take care of our members.
  • Iterate, learn, innovate - we are all responsible for innovation and we must embrace data-driven decisions.
  • Be SoFi missionaries - our products, our services, our brand, and our business must be durable over the long term to achieve our mission—be a missionary.
  • Don’t forget to smile - our ambition is contagious: it makes us smile to see people inside and outside of SoFi succeed.
