BMG Money will add its voice to a growing group of diverse industry-leading fintech companies building the future of financial services with a focus on transparency, consumer protection, and regulatory compliance.

“BMG Money is changing the way families access responsible and affordable credit by looking beyond the age-old metrics historically used to evaluate consumers,” said Phil Goldfeder, Chief Executive Officer of the American Fintech Council. “Responsible fintech companies like BMG Money are democratizing financial services and leveling the playing field for underserved families across the country. I am eager to work with Tom McCormick and the entire leadership team at BMG Money and confident that they will add an important voice to our Board of Directors.”

“I believe that an appropriate balance between protecting consumers from harm and building innovative, sustainable businesses has always been within our reach – but that certainly is true now given the technology, information, and partnerships available today,” said Tom McCormick, Co-Chief Executive Officer of BMG Money. “The American Fintech Council and its members prove that every day, and we are proud to be in such good company.”

Through this approach and these innovative programs, BMG Money is building financial inclusion and security for its customers.
