All Hands In

At Wealth8, we believe investing and building wealth should be for everyone. Wealth8 brings together a community of likeminded individuals serious about growing their wealth, learning the language of investments and engaging on lifestyle and money issues that resonate with the black and multi-ethnic communities.

Hello, we are Wealth8


Wealth8 is a technology-driven platform designed to connect people with wealth and investment opportunities, by providing easy access to global investment products, as well as the ability to learn the language of investing. Our community of like-minded individuals allows us to bring people together to share information, knowledge, support and grow our wealth together. 

We believe that all individuals, regardless of background, should be able to manage their finances and invest in the global markets to reach their financial goals.  We believe that it is time for everyone to have access to opportunities. It's time to bridge the wealth gap for those who have been traditionally overlooked or underserved in the area of investments.

We want to empower those who are serious about building wealth but have historically had limited opportunity to do so. 

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.
