Ease in the account onboarding process boosts military veterans’ ability to create personal wealth over the long haul
LEHI, UT – August 11, 2022 – MX, a leader in Open Finance, today announced that Guild Financial, an investing platform helping the U.S. military community, is leveraging MX to enable military service members, veterans, and their families to easily and securely connect financial data to help them build personal wealth over the coming decade.
Guild Financial is a fintech startup company focused on helping the nation’s military community to invest wisely over the long haul. (While Guild is built for the military, it is open to everyone.) The ability to quickly and easily connect financial accounts is critical to using the Guild Financial investing platform.
Previously, Guild experienced a high amount of connection failures, causing a poor customer experience. With MXapi, Guild now offers a quick and seamless account onboarding and funding experience. MX connectivity solutions enable fast, secure, and reliable ways for consumers to connect their financial accounts and access their financial data.
“As a veteran-owned-and-operated company, we know what it means to trust your teammates. If our client can’t fund their account because of poor performance by a third party, we’re going to lose that client’s trust,” said Sean Bonner, Founder and CEO of Guild Financial. “With MX, we have a trustworthy partner that delivers a better connectivity experience to our clients. We are very glad to have MX on our side.”
“We’re big fans of Guild Financial and the service it provides to the military community — to whom we as Americans owe a huge debt of gratitude. We look forward to working together to help the company connect to its customers, continue to grow as a company, and grow our partnership into the future,” said Dan Merrill, VP of Client Success at MX.
