Our Story

Robinhood’s story begins almost a decade ago at Stanford, where Baiju and Vlad met as roommates and classmates. After graduation they packed their bags for New York and built two finance companies, selling trading software to hedge funds. With their newfound experience in the world of finance, they realized that big Wall Street firms pay effectively nothing to trade stocks, while most Americans are charged commissions for every trade.
They soon decided it was more important to build products that would provide everyone with access to the financial markets, not just the wealthy. Two years after heading to New York, they moved back to California and built Robinhood—a company that leverages technology to encourage everyone to participate in our financial system.

Our Values

Deliberately engineered systems

We are a team of engineers and designers who strive to create excellent products for our customers. We believe that deliberately engineered systems — not marble office buildings on Wall St — are the cornerstones of establishing trust.

Simplicity

Today there is a complex system of regulation, financial institutions, and assets that can seem daunting to a newcomer. Making Robinhood simple, focused, and immediately understandable is hard work. But we believe that by sticking to this goal, we can make something really special.

Individual participation in equity markets

The stock market is one of the best available tools for individual wealth creation, and with customers at the heart of our decisions, Robinhood is lowering barriers, removing fees, and providing greater access to financial information. Together, we are building products and services that help create a financial system everyone can participate in.
