Esper Wealth – Meet The Team
Hello and welcome to Esper Wealth. We are a team of entrepreneurs with investment expertise in the private sector. Our team of finance and property experts have worked for decades and know what world-class investments look like. We also know that many of these investments can be out of reach for the average investor – and we think this sucks. So, with the help of a group of geeks, we’re creating a property platform, for tokenised investments that are designed for the digital era. This will help you to invest in the best investments in the marketplace.
Property & Finance Experts + Geeks = Esper Wealth
At Esper Wealth we have a diverse team that has lots of collective experience in property, finance and blockchain technology. We are using our experience to create better and more inclusive investment options for all.
|Our goal is simple:|
|We aim to make the best property investments accessible for all.|
The world Economic Forum anticipates that by the end of this decade over 10% of the real world’s assets will be stored on the blockchain in a process called tokenisation. We plan to be the company that leads this digital transformation.
Traditional property investments
Buying traditional property is good, but the process can often be slow. At Esper Wealth we are using PropTech in the form of smart contracts to speed up the property process. This results in faster purchases and fewer costs paid out in fees.
Through blockchain technology we have opened up the door to tokenised investments resulting in the ability to invest into the global property market with modest levels of capital. Esper Wealth has partnered with the world’s first ever property development company that is being funded exclusively through tokenisation. Through tokenisation investors can participate in property development on a pro-rata basis.
