Global Wealth Group, a leading meta-marketplace offering opportunities for investors to crowdfund property, announced today the acceptance of the Head of Product and Chief Product Officer of WealthPoint, Linden Booth, into Forbes Technology Council.
This is an invitation-only community for respected technology leaders and senior-level executives. Booth was vetted and selected by a review committee based on the depth and diversity of his experience.
Chairperson of Global Wealth Group, Willem van der Post, heralds this outstanding achievement, “we strongly believe in the potential of FinTech and are proud to have someone of Booth’s calibre as part of our leadership team”.
“We are honoured to welcome Linden Booth into the community,” said Scott Gerber, founder of Forbes Councils, the collective that includes Forbes Technology Council. “Our mission with the Forbes Councils is to bring together proven leaders from every industry, creating a curated, social capital-driven network that helps every member grow professionally and make an even greater impact on the business world.”
As an accepted member of the Council, Booth believes the platform is an exciting opportunity to further explore how financial technology can continue to be a tool for social entrepreneurship.
“As someone based in South Africa, with an internationally distributed team and client base, I look forward to contributing to the Council from a broader global perspective. Being a member of the Council provides me with a privileged position of influence to keep exploring how we can better use technology to help close the global wealth gap.”
Forbes Councils is a collective of invitation-only communities created in partnership with Forbes and the expert community builders who founded the Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC).
In Forbes Councils, exceptional business owners and leaders come together with the people and resources that can help them thrive.
As a global company, Global Wealth Group is purposefully driven to help close the global wealth inequality gap with a FinTech solution that offers commercial real estate and other asset class opportunities to investors worldwide.
The community’s meta-marketplace handles all primary market transactions and grants investors and investor networks access to multi-financial asset classes, global compliance, a payment system, and personalised digital wallets.
Global Wealth Group expanded this business model to offer business to consumer (B2C) and business to business (B2B) opportunities through its associate brands.
WealthPoint is a mature global meta-marketplace that is a proof of concept on the B2C side of Global Wealth Group’s offering.
Investors can access a complaint and well-regulated platform to invest in a range of diverse institutional-quality property deals. Usually, individual investors lack the access and wealth to invest in such deals, but this digital platform creates an opportunity for a more accessible means of wealth creation.
