gini 名字暗藏的意義是 ?
gini的名字是來自著名經濟學家和統計學家科拉多基尼 (Corrado Gini)，他最廣為人知的是他所創立用來計算財富收入距離的堅尼系數 (Gini co-efficient)。 gini的另一個意思是童話中為人們帶來願望的燈神 (Genie)。我們希望gini可以幫助用戶輕鬆管理個人財務，協助他們累積財富。近年香港的堅尼系數高達0.539，表示富有一族的總家庭收入是所有貧窮家庭的總收入的44倍，我們期望gini可以拉近各階層的貧富差距，為大家實現不同的願望。

gini Brings Differences
gini is named after economist and statistician, Corrado Gini, who is most famous for his namesake measure of income disparity the Gini co-efficient. Hong Kong, with the richest household now earning about 44 times what the poorest family crapes together, scored 0.539 in 2016, which has reached the historic high.
A Genie is also something that gives people what they want effortlessly. The name reflects our desire to help users get more from their money with little effort, which is our small contribution to levelling the unequal playing field the Gini co-efficient has identified.
Established in 2016, gini is one of the few fintech startups in the Hong Kong. In most markets, fintech startups present a credible threat to incumbent banks. Using a combination of technology, consumer-centric service and flexible business practices, these new companies are reducing the cost of doing business, extending their customer base and taking market-share from established rivals.
Gaming is changing and evolving. Nowadays Hong Kong, banks are starting to invest in various incubation programs, partnering with startups to embrace new ideas and technology. gini is serious and determines to build the revolutionary financial technology to the market, bringing consumers real benefits and a unique financial experience.
Hong Kong is just our starting point. McKinsey estimated that across Asia, more than 700 million consumers use digital banking regularly. And unlike the US and Europe, Asia only has a handful of personal financial management apps in the market. The market potential is huge. Once we achieved a steady growth in Hong Kong, our footprint will be expanded to North and South-East Asia.
