Why Mylo?

Mylo is Canada’s fastest growing fintech, and we’re just getting started. Since launching in July 2017, Mylo has been downloaded over 250,000 times and is already helping nearly 100,000 Canadians save and invest, many for the very first time.

We’ve been featured in major media across the country, won a deal on Dragons’ Den, and acquired an asset management firm with over $120M AUM. Our CEO Phil Barrar was nominated for EY Entrepreneur of the Year, made the Bay St Bull’s 30<30 List, and has raised $3.9M in funding to date, most notably from Desjardins Capital, the venture capital arm of North America's largest association of credit unions.

In a short time, our team has grown from just a few to almost 30 people. At Mylo, we value transparency, taking initiative and ownership, sharing our wins, and learning from our failures. Our people and their passion are what truly set us apart.
