Iconoclast Financial Services is not only a new financial services company but – in our opinion – it is a different type of financial services company.

At the core of what makes us new and different is our steadfast belief that the traditional personal financial methods of wealth creation, accumulation and distribution are archaic, ineffective, and inefficient.

The Need for Change

According to recent studies America's Middleclass is shrinking, and the divide between the haves and have-nots is increasing. In short, the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.3

"Sixty-six percent of the income growth between 2001 and 2007 went to the top 1% of all Americans."3,4 Furthermore, "in 1950, the ratio of the average executive's paycheck to the average worker's paycheck was about 30 to 1. Since the year 2000, that ratio has exploded to between 300 and 500 to one."3

Additionally, Iconoclast believes – as others – the traditional personal financial methods used by financial institutions were a catalyst for the current economic crisis. Larger banks carelessly managed our money while other financial institutions designed complex financial products that masked risk and were exempt from regulatory scrutiny. At the same time, many Americans borrowed more than they could afford or signed contracts they did not fully understand. "Ensuring this crisis never happens again will require new rules to protect consumers and better information to empower them."5
