SAN MATEO, California., September 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Reachthe leader in digital personal finance, has launched its new brand and an expanded suite of offerings designed to help people get started and stay on the path to a better financial future.
There are over 123 million consumers The United States who could use some help to grow from financially troubled to successful businesses. Achieve’s digital personal finance offerings can help people reduce debt, improve cash flow, save money, manage expenses and plan for the future.

Achieve will continue to grow to meet the ever-evolving financial needs of its members and plans to help everyday people with banking, budgeting and more in the future.
Co-founded by Co-CEOs Andrew Hauser and Brad Straw, Achieve’s foundation is built on Freedom Financial Network’s 20 years of consumer-centric financial services expertise. Since 2002, Freedom Financial Network has served more than 1 million consumers, dissolved over 16 billion dollars indebted and relieved about 7 billion dollars in personal and home loans.
“When we started our company, it was based on the realization that the vast majority of financial services companies were not focused on helping consumers better manage their debt or cope with financial setbacks. It was clear to us at the time that a new approach was needed,” said Achieve co-founder and co-CEO Andrew Hauser. “The traditional financial system and most consumer fintechs still serve the wealthiest people with pristine credit histories. We understand that life isn’t always a best-case scenario, which is why we’ve made Achieve the leading provider of digital personal finance for everyday people.”
Drawing on two decades of data and analytics, credit profiling expertise and conservative risk management, Achieve offers an unrivaled ability to navigate complex and ever-changing credit and economic cycles. Achieve takes an empathetic and tailored approach to helping people on their financial journeys, profiling what has and hasn’t worked for its members and then offering the right mix of financial products, education and engagement. Achieve’s 2,700 dedicated employees work with hubs across the country California, Arizona and Texas.
“For 20 years, we’ve been a leading financial services company with heart, helping consumers take charge of their financial lives,” said co-founder and co-CEO Brad Straw. “As we become Achieve, we will continue our empathetic approach to understanding and supporting our members and their unique situations, personalized solutions and their journey to a brighter financial future.”
The Digital Personal Finance Difference
Digital personal finance lies at the interface between financial services and fintech. Achieve puts people first, leveraging data and artificial intelligence, combined with the power of a relationship-based human touch, to personalize solutions to each member’s needs and create a clear path to the next step in their financial journey.
“Traditional banks and fintechs often ignore sub-prime consumers. Many startups don’t have the experience or data to develop algorithms that work for customers with failing credit scores, pushing this sizable consumer segment out of traditional financial services and into expensive and outdated financial products,” said Achieve co-founder and co-CEO Brad Straw. “Our approach to digital personal finance is designed for everyday life. We believe in a world where the best that banking and technology has to offer is accessible to all, so everyone can build a stronger and better financial future.”
