You don’t have to be Mr. Wolf of Wallstreet to have heard of Robinhood. It’s the financial trading app that has got so many eyebrows raised as Gamestop went into a frenzy the past few weeks.
The app that makes trading stocks easy and for everyone is here at the greatest of all advertising playgrounds – The Superbowl Commercials.
Compared to the dry and boring financial ads that make you want to snooze into an nothingness, Robinhood , the Fintech company of the future is sharing with the world how investing is not just for the Wall Street suit&ties, but for everybody.
I personally love the idea of democratising investments. Of-course financial literacy is the module of the generation that we all need to take in some form or the other (I took the Chartered Financial Analyst Level 1 for example). But assuming we all have a good baseline, apps like Robinhood really simplify your life and give an “in” into the markets without the multi-screen candle stick charts of the Bloomberg terminal.
Most of all, it gives people the freedom to have exposure to the financial markets in a really easy and accessible mobile first way. Although we don’t exactly know how Robinhood’s destiny will pan out in the near future but I must say that – FinTech is the new kid on the block playing David vs Goliath. And boy, might I say atleast in the advertising playground, with lifestyle creatives like these, David is sure as hell in the lead.
