Fortu was founded by Firdavs Shakhidi and Azamat Sultanov, long-time friends and business partners who had previously built a boutique asset management group with over $500 million in assets under management. Seeing a gap in the market for a product that simplified payments and investments, they created Fortu, which allows clients to manage their finances with a highly intuitive, user-friendly app. In 2020, Fortu was launched as a sleek and unified platform to meet the needs of affluent millennials. Bringing private banking into the digital age, our service is borderless, personalised and secure, with an international financial reach.
Our team is highly qualified, with decades of experience in the financial services and tech industries. Drawing on this expertise, we aim to build a trusted space for our clients that respects and reflects their priorities. Millennials are currently projected to inherit $50 trillion by 2030, but this transformation in generational wealth comes with an entirely new set of needs. Fortu will provide an effortless and fully digital experience, enabling clients to develop tailored investment plans (whether for cash or assets) that harness the responsive, hassle-free technologies that they use elsewhere in their lives.
Fortu uses artificial intelligence to automate previously manual, paper-reliant processes. This means we have more time to focus on developing meaningful relationships with our clients, understanding their needs and long-term aspirations. We will also be launching a personalised investment experience with curated suggestions for stocks, bonds and alternative investments create a portfolio offer that aligns with today’s values.
We have been inspired and encouraged by the results of our recent crowdfunding campaign on Seedrs, where we raised over £500,000 — exceeding our target by 222%. We would like to thank each of 588 investors for believing in us and joining our journey to transform banking for affluent individuals and their businesses. This is only the beginning of an exciting future.
