About us

Who is Franc?

Investing is for rich guys in suits and fancy cars, right? Absolutely not! We believe that investing is for everyone.

Franc was born in 2018 when an engineer, an actuary, an investment guru and a tech wizz shared a common idea of making investing affordable, accessible and social.

With the Franc app, anyone can now invest in leading cash and equity funds in just a few minutes. No minimums. No paperwork. No fine print. Just the way investing should be: smart, simple and Franc.

We believe everyone should be able to access the best investments.

I like that the app is user friendly. I like the quiz about what sort of investor I should be. And everything was easy to understand.
