About Fintool

Our mission is to organize the world financial information. We are building a financial copilot for investment professionals to make better decisions. We believe that chat-based interfaces are the future of the web. In most cases, it's easier to ask a question and get an answer than to search for keywords and read dozens of pages.

Fintool is a financial copilot for public equity investors. It's ChatGPT on top of financial documents, starting with SEC filings. Fintool is engineered to discover financial insights beyond the reach of timely human analysis. Fintool helps summarizing long annual reports, compute numbers and find new insights by comparing years of filings.

We are one of the fastest-growing LLM applications, and thousands of investors have signed up for Fintool. We are at the forefront of revolutionizing how information is organized, consumed, and created, and we would love to work with you!

Our philosophy

Small team: small in-person teams outperform large and well-funded companies. When people visit our office, they should be surprised by how few people we are.

Ship code: we avoid meetings, PM jargon to release early, release often, and listen to customers.

In-person: we believe high-performing teams do their best work, build long-term relationships, and have the most fun in person.

Company Values

Clone and improve the best: we're not about reinventing the wheel but about enhancing proven success. We are shameless cloners who stand on the shoulders of giants. We draw inspiration and then create differentiation because distinctiveness drives dominance.

Release early, release often, and listen to your customers: speed matters in business, so we push better-than-perfect updates for customers asap. Mastery comes from repeated experiments and learning from mistakes rather than putting in a set number of hours. It’s 10,000 iterations, not 10,000 hours.

Warren Buffett: We model our personal and professional ethos on the principles he exemplifies. Upholding integrity, valuing honesty, practicing frugality, championing lifelong learning, embracing humility, extending generosity, applying rationality, and demonstrating patience. Every day, we strive to mirror these Buffett-inspired virtues.
