We don’t spend our budget on big stadiums, celebrity spokespeople, or any of those other stunts the big banks pull. Instead, we’re economical with our spending — which means we can prioritize paying our clients the interest they deserve.  

Just like savings accounts offered by big banks, M1 High-Yield Savings Accounts are backed by FDIC insurance. However, most banks only offer insurance up to $250,000, which is only 1/20th of the $5 million insurance offered by M1.3
