Robinhood IPO On NASDAQ
Robinhood IPO Listing Day 29th July 2021

Robinhood was founded in 2013 by Stanford University roommates Vlad Tenev (CEO & President) and Baiju Bhatt (Chief Creative Officer & Director) to give everyone access to financial markets, upon discovering big Wall Street firms were paying next-to-nothing to trade stocks, while most Americans were charged commission for every single trade.   

Robinhood commission free investing forced the brokerage industry to drop commissions and in 2020, became the 3rd largest brokerage behind Fidelity and Charles Schwab.  

Robinhood easy-to-use trading platform is popular among young investors and students.  Robinhood provides commission free investing to United States listed securities and selected OTC securities.  Investors can invest from $1 onwards, providing equity, cryptocurrency, options trading and cash management accounts.  In 2021 Q1, Robinhood has 18 million clients and with around $80 billion of assets.

In 2020, Robinhood reported revenue of $959 million and net income of $7.45 million.  In 2021 Q1, Robinhood reported a loss of $1.4 billion due to losses incurred from GameStop trading frenzy.
