Rob Marstrand, Founder

The worlds of finance and investment can seem complex and alien a lot of the time. They’re loaded with jargon and acronyms, and experts use confusing mathematical formulae that are as likely to confuse as to explain.

This leaves non-experts who have money to invest at the mercy of bankers, brokers and the mainstream financial media. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

It’s perfectly possible for someone without a formal financial training to be a highly successful private investor. All that’s required is the right information, a modest amount of time and a reasonable degree of organisation.

Successful private investors need a more global mindset than before. The world is changing fast. Wealth and power are shifting to new regions. At OfWealth our team is fully international and we use our experience to find the best opportunities for investors – and avoid the pitfalls. Importantly, all our research is completely independent and unbiased.

If we’re doing our job properly here at OfWealth then anyone will be able to read our coverage of complex investment subjects and understand them with ease. Our readers learn about how to invest, what to invest in for profit, and what to avoid. Sometimes, as unlikely as it seems, we even manage to make it entertaining.

Rob Marstrand started OfWealth with these issues and aims in mind.
