Interview: Public Co-CEO Leif Abraham

SPACs, Stonks, Crypto, Generative AI & More

Hey all, Jason here.

Two podcasts in the same week?! With the restart of the Fintech Recap pod, I’m recalibrating my publishing cadence — this should shift back to a max of one episode per week in your inbox going forward…

On to the important stuff: the last several years have seen quite the rollercoaster of investment-related trends: meme stonks, SPACs, crypto, and now… Treasuries? Another emerging trend: generative AI. In this episode, I had the chance to sit down with investing app Public’s co-CEO Leif Abraham to talk about all of that and more, including:

  • How AI for investing is and isn’t different than previous trends like PFMs and roboadvisors

  • How Public got comfortable deploying user-facing AI capabilities

  • Why Public ended payment for order flow (PFOF) and decided to accept “tips”

  • How Public stands out in a crowded investing market

  • and more!

Also, a big congrats to the Public team on today’s announcement of their expansion to the UK market!
