Uber Opens A New Fintech Office In New York City

Uber is everywhere—literally. And now it has plans to make go the distance in a new industry: fintech. Uber is making this move in the hopes to better service workers in the gig economy. During a recent recruitment event, Uber Technologies Inc (NYSE:UBER) announced plans to accelerate the growth of its sideline business in financial products by opening a new fintech office in New York City. Fintech expert Monica Eaton-Cardone says that Uber’s primary goals are to encourage customer loyalty within its rideshare and food delivery businesses and help independent contractors manage earnings.
Here are a few points to consider:
- Uber said it is interested in helping its network of independent contractors better manage earnings.
- While it is estimated that as many as 20 percent of the full-time U.S. labor force will consist of short-term independent contractors by 2020, few traditional financial institutions offer services specifically tailored to this population’s needs.
- Uber, which already has a program in place to help its drivers and food deliverers access an individual retirement account or Roth IRA, would be well positioned to offer further financial services to its own workers.
