With the interviewer Jim Cramer, Anthony Noto further states SoFi has multiple competitors in the FinTech market and the company collectively must ensure a few steps to remain the top company within the market. Anthony Noto mentions, “First, we have to have the best selection — and not just selection of each product, but variations of those products,” Noto said. “Second, we have to provide unmatched convenience. Anytime, anywhere, on any device, you should be able to access all of your financial information, do any activity that you want across the broad spectrum of products that we’ll launch over time. People need to be able to apply the fastest, get approved the fastest, get access to their money the fastest. They should be able to withdraw their money the fastest, pay somebody the fastest, invest in stocks the fastest.”
The niche market of any fintech consists of customers, refinance student, people who take out loans like mortgage loans, personal loans and even get career advice. The company has multiple other plans and introduce new products by 2019, in order to assist its customers. “We’re building a membership base, and the SoFi membership base will be a key advantage for us in that when you do something with us in financial services, we are going to continue to facilitate our relationship through things like professional networking, career advice, financial advice, live financial advice, so that you can make the best decisions on your path to achieve your financial goals,” the CEO stated.
