Introducing: Consumer Finance Breakdown

We are excited to share our founder’s newsletter, the Consumer Finance Breakdown. In it, David shares important updates in the consumer finance world, many of which directly relate to the businesses and consumers that Installmt hopes to help with our payments platform. We highly suggest subscribing if you’re interested in understanding, on a deeper level, what’s going on in the financial world.

The newsletter’s first post, Consumer Finance Needs Better PR, outlines just how important consumer finance is to everyday Americans, and it explains important characteristics of different financial products.
