Our mission is to give renters everywhere greater financial freedom to plan and enjoy their lives. Rhino has launched the industry's first end-to-end deposit platform servicing all stakeholders in the rental ecosystem.

With Rhino, millions of renters across the country now have the opportunity to save with our award-winning deposit insurance.

Our newest offerings include Rhino+, a cash deposit collection and compliance solution for landlords and property managers, and Credit+, which will provide renters at partner communities with a means to build credit through on-time rent reporting.
