Menlo Park-based fintech Robinhood is prepping to go public, Techcrunch reports.

“It’s something we think is very much in the future,” CEO Baiju Bhatt said at TechCrunch Disrupt onstage.

“Being a public company closely aligns with our mission – not in the immediate term, but it’s something we’re thinking about.”

Onstage, Bhatt also shared that the company is in search of a chief financial officer and is being audited by U.S. regulators and its own security team to ensure everything is ready to go.

The six-year-old fintech has grown to more than 5 million brokerage accounts, with more than $150 billion in trades transacted to date, according to Robinhood.

Rival E-Trade Financial Corp., for comparison, has 3.7 million brokerage accounts.

Robinhood has 150 employees in the Bay Area, with 180 companywide, according to San Francisco Business Times research.
