About Us

AboveBoard was started by Wallis Tsai, a former financier and new mom. Her career has included 10 years at Goldman Sachs – first as an investment banker and then as a hedge fund investor, focused on the inner working of financial institutions.

She was surprised by the number of times in her life she had needed to rely on her own professional expertise in order to understand her options, strike the best deal and not get “taken for a ride”.

She found herself advising an increasing number of people on how to make the financial system work for them.

Excited to help more people, she left Goldman Sachs and learned to code at Flatiron School, then advised a number of venture-backed fintech companies. She started AboveBoard to help other people navigate the world of finance with confidence.

Wallis Wilkinson Tsai
Founder & CEO
Wallis spent over 10 years at Goldman Sachs as a hedge fund investor and investment banker focused exclusively on financial institutions, before leaving to learn to code at the Flatiron School. Wallis cares about making great financial choices to care for and protect her kids, and enjoy future family vacations (just as soon as neither child re-enacts a scene from The Exorcist during car rides!).

Nancy has worked in tech for over 12 years, building cool stuff spanning aircraft design, games involving dancing pets and farm animals, and bringing chefs to families' homes. After spending countless nights managing finances for her own family (yay spreadsheets!), she was thrilled to join Wallis in making personal finance easy (and fun) for all.
