Democratizing access to financial services

Friends since college, Roy Ng and Yan Wu founded Bond in July 2019 with the vision of making financial services easier to use and more widely available, especially for communities traditionally underserved or unserved entirely by today’s financial systems.

Both Roy and Yan immigrated to the United States as children and know the difficulties of building financial stability and establishing credit from scratch. They dreamed of creating more access in order to establish financial security and, when they got their chance, they knew they had to build Bond to make that happen.

Financial services is the new infrastructure

As the former Chief Operating Officer of Twilio, the communications company that revolutionized SMS and voice communications, Roy knows the power of infrastructure businesses and how they can transform the lives of millions. His vision for Bond is to do the same thing for financial services — allow any company to offer them easily and programmatically to their customers.

Yan had similar experiences as the VP of Data Analytics at both BlackRock and SoFi. He realized that he could contribute immeasurable ROI once he tapped into existing data. Yan brings data science insights to Bond and Bond’s customers that are transforming fintech.
