Get In Touch

We’d love to hear from you.

The roots of three+one® and its flagship services cashVest® and rfpPrep® span over 30 years of rich experience in business, public service, higher education, and government banking.

From our official launch in 2014 to the FY close of 2021, the FinTech expertise at three+one® has helped clients throughout the United States realize an additional $550 Million in revenue opportunities and cost savings through liquidity data analysis. These public dollars are reinvested by public entities back into their communities and those they serve.

Our partnership with the National Association of Counties (NACo.) has accelerated our growth throughout the nation. In addition, we stand in partnership with multiple state-level associations from New York & California to Alaska & Florida. Further recognized as a liquidity data analysis pioneer, our firm was tapped by BNY Mellon as an inaugural participant in the FinTech Accelerator program where our technology was further advanced by contributions from expert voices across the globe.

We take immense pride in the fact that our Pathway To Recovery® model was designated as a qualifying expense for ARP Stimulus Dollars as we continue to help navigate municipalities, K-12 districts, and higher Ed clients through new financial challenges in the post-pandemic economy.

1988

In the beginning

Our firm’s origins trace back to the services of muni bank® and Muniflow®, a division of Rulison & Company. It was founded by our CEO, Joe Rulison, in 1988. Muniflow® received national recognition in the 1990s by serving the short-term investment needs of public and higher education institutions. In 1997, our co-founder and COO, Peter Forsgren, joined Muniflow® to further develop the proprietary cash-flow-management models that are the fundamental pillars of our services today.

1988

2001

Public Service

In 2001, Muniflow® was purchased by Fleet Bank, which later became Bank of America. As a center point for healthcare, higher education and government banking, Muniflow® expanded the bank’s national footprint by serving hundreds of public and higher education clients.

2001

2008 - 2014

FinTech Pioneer

Over the next dozen years, Joe and Peter deepened their banking experience while also serving their communities in several leadership roles that further shaped their vision for three+one®. Navigating a changing landscape in banking after the financial crisis of 2008—and eager to help the entities they served in the past—our co-founders launched three+one® in the fall of 2014.

2008 - 2014

2015 - 2021

Rapid Growth

Since 2015, three+one® has been on a rapid growth trajectory. The cashVest® platform officially launched in 2016 followed shortly by rfpPrep® in 2018. Combined, these groundbreaking FinTech solutions earned the firm the necessary capital to continue growing. Among three+one®’s biggest achievements is the national strategic partnership with the National Assoc. of Counties (NACo) which has helped the benefits of cashvest® reach counties of all sizes and demographics. Even throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, three+one® continued to deliver on its commitment to the public with the rollout of the Pathway to Recovery®, taking part in BNY Mellon’s FinTech Accelerator, and investing in the continued buildout of its technology with Zühlke.

2015 - 2021

2022

National Presence
