We built Candor because we were in your shoes

At Candor, we’re here to build you the simple, powerful wealth-building tools we wish we had. So you can reach your financial goals faster.

We build financial tools that serve you

Fiduciary standards

Unlike brokerages, we have a legal obligation to serve your best interest.

Fair fee structure

Financial services with simple, easy-to-understand pricing everybody can afford.

No kickbacks, ever

We don’t get paid to recommend portfolios. We only pick what’s best.

We believe in wealth equity

Most of us in tech are first gen — first to go to college, first to be an engineer, first to be paid in RSUs.

At Candor, we’re building products to help you invest not just in yourself but also in your communities — all towards building lasting legacies of wealth and opportunity.

Made by pioneers to serve pioneers

We believe that financial products that put you first can only be built by people who value you.

Candor is built by a diverse team as caring as it is cutting-edge — just like the communities we support.

Owner Mindset

We move fast, but we like things done right the first time. We treat everyone on our team like an entrepreneur in their own domain.

Simple & Humble

Creative Tenacity

Low Ego, High Execution


Safe & Sound


Building wealth that lasts

At Candor, we push each other to always “look to the end” with everything we do, whether it’s investing responsibly or navigating our lives with integrity.

We believe that the best things in life are enduring, and long-term wealth always starts with a long-term perspective.
