How it all started
After 25 years in traditional banking, Colin Walsh, Varo CEO and co-founder, was fed up with a problem in the industry.
There’s a growing disconnect between what customers want: a bank account without fees that helps them solve everyday financial problems…
…And what many traditional banks offer: expensive, difficult products and tricky policies that don’t help customers.
“We’re building a bank from the ground up to improve the financial health of our customers through better technology and total transparency.” – Colin
