Personal Capital’s Series F follows another year of tremendous growth. In 2018, the company, which has a large office in Denver, made several key executive hires, launched a new office in Atlanta, rolled out several new products features and partnerships, and moved its headquarters from San Carlos, CA to Redwood Shores to accommodate its rapidly expanding team. More recently, the fintech company surpassed $8.5 billion in assets under management and 2 million registered users on its platform, which manages and tracks more than $650 billion in aggregated account value.
Personal Capital plans to use the funds to continue driving growth, investing in new industry partnerships and enhancing its technology platform.
The round was led by Canadian financial services investment firm IGM Financial Inc., which also led the company’s Series E.
“We remain extremely excited about how Personal Capital is changing the wealth management landscape and the company's role within our broader fintech growth strategy,” said Jeff Carney, president and CEO of IGM Financial, in a statement. “As the fintech space gets more crowded, Personal Capital is uniquely positioned with its offering of smart technology accompanied by human advice for mass affluent and high-net-worth clients.”
