What's a T-Bill?
T-Bills are short-term bonds backed by the "full faith and credit" of the US federal government. Each T-Bill comes with a set of fixed terms, including a maturity date and face value to be repaid.
T-Bills are sold at auction by the federal government to finance operations and service existing debt. Unlike stocks, which may pay dividends to investors, T-Bills remit only the full amount of the bond to holders. Known as “zero-coupon bonds,” T-Bills provide returns based on the difference between the purchase price at auction and full par value. The deeper the discount, the greater the return.
How do I sign up?
You can download the beta app from the App Store or the Play Store to join our waitlist. We’ll notify you by email when your Jiko is ready. Depending on your state of residence, your wait time may vary from a few days to several weeks.
The beta release is available to US residents who are 18 and older with a valid Social Security number, domestic phone number, and domestic residential address.
Where does “Jiko” come from?
Jiko means “self” in japanese (自己). By cutting off the middle-man and empowering you with your money, we hope to offer you the most convenient and rewarding financial experience.
Is my money FDIC insured with a Jiko?
FDIC insurance does not apply as your money is invested in securities through your Jiko brokerage account held at Jiko Securities, Inc. member SIPC. Securities held in your account are protected up to $500,000. See www.sipc.org for more details and a brochure.
