OAKLAND, Calif.,December 19, 2018 - CNote, a women-led financial technology company that allows everyone to invest with their values announced today that it is raising the interest rate on its award-winning Financial Inclusion Fund to 2.75 percent in 2019.

In 2018, the impact investing platform has seen significant user growth as more investors look for ways to connect meaning to their money. With an overarching mission to close the wealth gap in the United States by providing funding to women- and minority-led small businesses, financing affordable housing and increasing investment in low-income communities, CNote looks to make impact investing even more rewarding in 2019.

Compared with quarterly CDs that currently yield around 0.75 percent APY or less, CNote offers a significantly higher APY of 2.75 percent without any fees, early-withdrawal penalties or minimums — all while investing in economic growth in communities that need it the most. 

“For a long time, doing something good with your money wasn't always the smartest financial decision. We're challenging that thinking. In 2019, we're making it even more financially rewarding for our members to invest with their values. If you’ve got extra cash sitting in an account paying you next to nothing, an investment in CNote is a great way to make your money work for you in 2019,” said Cat Berman, CEO and co-founder of CNote.

Since inception, CNote and its members have committed over $18 million dollars to communities across the country, helping to create or maintain over 1,800 jobs and bring sustainable economic growth to local communities across America.
