Public is a fintech company that seeks to capitalize on, and encourage, the expansion of retail investing. The company’s mission is “to make the public markets work for all people” via its commission-free investing platform that places a special focus on social investing, with features that encourage on-platform interaction between users. While lack of accessibility is one possible reason why many retail investors continue to refrain from actively participating in the markets, Public believes psychological and intellectual barriers to entry are also common obstacles. Public looks to solve this by expanding accessibility by providing the tools, education, and community for retail investors and other non-professionals to participate in the stock market and other forms of investing.
