The acquisition of Trim, subject to completion of standard closing conditions, will enhance OneMain's digital features designed to help its more than 2.2 million customers progress to a better financial future.
Trim helps customers manage their financial goals by negotiating bills, analyzing transaction data and enabling automated savings.

"Our mission at Trim has been to solve our users' financial problems so that they can live the lives they want. In 2015, we started by tackling spending. As we grew, we addressed bigger financial problems, helping our users organize, track and ultimately improve their finances," said Thomas Smyth, CEO of Trim. "We are excited to continue advancing our vision as part of the OneMain team and help the company bring more options to millions of hardworking Americans."
