)-- The FiNext 2019 conference organizers awarded Barry B. Mione, CEO of SaveDay®, the Excellence in Finance - Leadership award on August 31, 2019 in Orlando, Florida; recognizing him for his industry experience, as well as his leadership through innovation and making an impact on future-readiness in fintech.
The FiNext Awards & Conference was founded to provide a platform for the global FinTech sector. FiNext Awards acknowledge the efforts of FinTech thought leaders and torchbearers of the industry.
Mione was appointed CEO of SaveDay®️ in November 2018 because of his financial acumen, leadership track record, and the fact that he launched the advisor and broker/dealer business of SaveDay®️. Mr. Mione has been involved with SaveDay®️ from the beginning as a co-founder and continues to be recognized as a leader in the fintech community.
His executive leadership traits have been recognized in Forbes, U.S. News, and CNBC. Additionally, he co-founded DLJdirect, an online brokerage business, which IPO’d in 1999 raising $320 million. Subsequently sold the company in 2005, delivering its technology and customers, to E*Trade for $700 million. He also held upper management and executive positions at Credit Suisse, BNY Mellon, and the Bank of Montreal.
SaveDay® began in 2015, and, under Mione’s direction for the last eight months, is growing 23% month over month. He plans to grow SaveDay® for all Americans who currently do not have a retirement investment plan.
Mione dedicated the award to his father, who worked his entire career to an unfortunate financial ending.
“About 20 years ago, I watched my father lose everything in bankruptcy court; he lost everything,” Mione said. “I believe it could have been avoided if he had better access to a retirement investment account. I never want any family to experience that; I want to make a difference in American’s financial health.”
Founded in 2016 for the sole purpose of democratizing retirement investment plans, SaveDay® designed proprietary technology with a methodology of offering 401(k) plans that grow freely. By eliminating unnecessary fees from these plans, investors can keep more of their investment working for them toward retirement. SaveDay® is an online investment financial technology company where sponsoring companies can access and manage accounts online. SaveDay® is the advisor, broker/dealer, and administrator; acting as an independent fiduciary. Plan features include as auto-enrollment, pre- and post-tax contributions and mobile account access with automatic payroll deductions.
