By Nicole Casperson
From medicine to regulations and headlong into Fintech, meet the CFO building a better financial system.
Alison Staloch is CFO at Fundrise, America’s largest direct-to-investor real estate investment platform, since 2012.
Nicole and Alison, dig into why a career in medicine left her cold, how she navigated a course through regulations and policy at the US Securities And Exchange Commission, and why Fundrise’s ethos for empowering its customer is her north star.
Plus, you’ll also hear the best piece of advice Alison was given and why Fintech outsiders should dive into the industry with no fear.
