Who We Are

The product and company known as Rise today began as an idea that sparked in 2014. As global oil prices slumped and set off currency shocks across a number of emerging markets, including Nigeria, it became clear that local investments were too volatile, and their returns were constantly being destroyed by inflation, devaluation and lack of growth

We started Rise as a simple way of providing people living in Nigeria with dollar-denominated investments in the US and other markets to enable them to earn returns that make investing worth it.

Our mission at Rise is to be the product that brings the best investments from around the world to everyone in Africa and beyond in order to create wealth for the continent.
