About Us

Our mission is to achieve economic empowerment for black and ethnic minorities through the creation and preservation of wealth.

Wealth8 is a technology-driven platform connecting people with wealth and investment opportunities, the ability to learn the language of investing and the benefits of a diversified portfolio. Using technology to make this a simple, affordable experience, we are unlocking the limitless opportunities of the global markets.

We believe that every individual regardless of background should be able to manage their finances and tap into wealth opportunities that for decades have been the preserve of investment-savvy men from well to do backgrounds. We believe it’s time to focus on the powerful community of women and millennials from black and ethnic minority backgrounds, who have not had access to targeted investment opportunities in the past.

 

Capital at risk. When investing, the value of your investment may rise or fall and there are no guarantees you will get back all the capital you have invested.
