Why T-Bills instead of deposits?

Treasury Bills are short-term debt instruments issued by the U.S. Treasury, and considered one of the safest investments available 2. As a popular investment with typically high liquidity and chance of yield, the first thing big banks and corporates tend to do is invest their cash in T-Bills. Historically, however, access to these investments for individuals has been limited, often paired with commissions or brokerage fees that eat away at the investment. With Jiko, access to Treasury Bills is direct and liquidation occurs when you spend with your Jiko Debit Card 3.

Cashback, right to your account

Our rewarding debit program

Most banks collect interchange income on each debit card swipe from the card network. This is normally kept by the bank as revenue. Jiko does not keep this income and instead passes it on to you in the form of cashback 1.

1% Cashback 1

No Credit requirements

No Risk of overspending

State-of-the-art connectivity: Jiko Portals

Multiple bank account numbers tied to your account

Using the same account and routing numbers for every third-party connected to your account introduces unnecessary risk, and makes keeping track of payments difficult. Jiko Portals allow you to create a unique account number for each merchant or institution linked to your account, so you can easily keep track of and delete connections from the app.

Control, Safety, and Privacy reinvented

Transparency at the core

Our model was created with transparency in mind. That’s why you know exactly where your money is at all times, the exact earnings your money generates, and how Jiko makes money.

Runs on a different fuel

Your funds are invested in US government-backed Treasury Bills in increments of $100, regarded as one of the most trustworthy financial assets in the world by investors, and insured by SIPC 2.

Unprecedented control

Jiko Portals allow you to generate unique bank account numbers for ACH transactions. This helps reduce the risk of fraudulent charges and gives you unprecedented control when it comes to managing payments.

Added security

The Jiko Solid™ Debit Cards we issue don’t display a card number, expiration date, or CVV, and are PIN protected.

Privacy is a precious asset

Privacy is a most precious asset: Jiko refuses to share or sell your data to third-parties. Our app doesn’t use external cookies or tracking for analytics or advertising.

A Financial Institution

We are an innovative technology company with a licensed broker-dealer and national bank charter. We’re proud to comply with the industry standards set by our federal regulators.
