🎉 Stakeholder Labs is a Finalist for 'Best New Product' at 2023 Benzinga Fintech Awards
Join us on November 13th in NYC to celebrate achievement in financial technology
The Stakeholder Labs team is headed to New York City next week for the 2023 Benzinga Fintech Awards & Deal Day. We’re thrilled to be sharing the stage alongside leading financial institutions and to be a finalist for ‘Best New Product’ among dozens of fintech startups.
The event promises a diverse range of discussions across two stages: the Big Ideas Stage and the Trailblazers Stage. Each will offer a different lens on the fintech world, covering everything from cryptocurrency and AI to investment strategies and the revolutionizing of digital identity. The program content is aimed at both B2B and B2C audiences which promises to attract a large and diverse crowd on a busy New York City week.
Matt Joanou, co-founder and CEO of Stakeholder Labs, will moderate a conversation with leaders from BlackRock, Webull, Robinhood and MoneyLion around the important topic of financial literacy and strategies for encouraging behavior change. Matt’s extensive background working for technology leaders like Google and Reddit, brings a nuanced perspective on the intersection of financial literacy, self-organized online communities, and the growing influence of individual investors. The panel will also feature:
Stephanie Guild, CFA - Senior Director of Investment Strategy, Robinhood
Cynthia Kleinbaum - Chief Marketing Officer, MoneyLion
Anthony Denier - CEO, Webull
Kyle Braden - Director, Business Development & Digital Wealth, BlackRock
Stephanie and Anthony represent the new wave of neo-brokerages that have democratized access to the stock markets through user-friendly mobile apps. They will discuss the evolution of their user base and the maturation of these investors. Kyle will bring insights into how the perception and strategy toward individual investors has evolved at BlackRock as well as programs currently being implemented aimed at reaching a new generation of digitally native investor. And Cynthia will offer a broader perspective on financial literacy across the spectrum of products and services offered by MoneyLion.
The panel will also address one of the most pressing issues in today’s markets: the engagement gap in shareholder voting. Despite owning a significant share of the market, retail shareholders' voices are often underrepresented in corporate decision-making due to a lack of awareness and education.
