Our mission at Rise is to connect our users to the best wealth creating opportunities in the world. Our goal is to help them create wealth and achieve their financial goals.
The product and company known as Rise today began with an idea that sparked in 2014. We realized that due to currency shocks, high inflation rates and the impact of devaluation, most investment opportunities across emerging markets do not yield enough returns for investors to grow their wealth. This makes it difficult for people in these markets to achieve their financial goals.
To solve this problem, we built Rise as a simple way of connecting our users to dollar-denominated investments in developed markets, managed by a world class team using smart algorithms to guide our decisions, while helping our users become more financially literate.
