Trading Systems , Wealth Management

DriveWealth, LLC,  a U.S. based leader in global digital trading technology, announced today a new partnership with Wealthface LLC, an innovative UAE-based wealth management company and online investment platform. The agreement marks DriveWealth’s first initiative in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, bringing the firm’s technology and brokerage execution services to one of the region’s first investment robo-advisors.

Employing DriveWealth’s proven technology, Wealthface will offer U.S. stock market access to a wide range of regional investors with varying investment amounts. Wealthface clients will also be provided access to fractional shares in familiar U.S. brands, an offering that DriveWealth has pioneered.

Wealthface Founder & CEO Bilal Majbour stated: “Our partnership with DriveWealth is a significant manifestation of our vision to make the U.S. equity market accessible to everyone everywhere. We want to enable all types of investors to access investment solutions previously unavailable to online investors using our cutting-edge technology at a low cost. In addition, we are committed to offering value-added services to millions of customers in the Middle East and North Africa region. DriveWealth is the ideal partner to help launch our offering to regional clients using the latest and most innovative technologies.”

DriveWealth CEO Robert Cortright said: “We are truly pleased to help Wealthface – an innovator in the MENA region – bring investors affordable, robust access to the U.S. markets. This partnership is a great opportunity to establish our first presence in this important region, and we’re delighted to continue on our geographic expansion.”

The partnership with Wealthface is the latest in a series of relationships DriveWealth has forged globally on six continents, including recent agreements to increase affordable access to the U.S. markets to investors of all sizes in the U.S., Nigeria, India and Brazil, as well as in Europe through a groundbreaking offering with Revolut. The firm offers partners such as Wealthface its unique investing technology, along with a customizable suite of application programming interfaces (APIs) that they can leverage to enhance their services. DriveWealth, which launched its patent-pending real-time fractional share trading capabilities in 2016, was founded with the mission to democratize investing in the U.S. stock market. The firm is dedicated to eliminating barriers investors typically encounter with legacy brokers, creating its own proprietary infrastructure that allows investors to purchase securities without minimum account balances, high transaction costs or full share quantities.
