About WealthPark Lab ~ Open new investment door for all~
The environment surrounding our asset management has changed drastically through longevity trend, digital transformation (DX), social implementation of ESG, and the multipolar global society, and its importance is increasing. WealthPark Lab will engage in a wide range of activities to disseminate the essence of investment, which people have not realized until now, for the sake of “open new investment doors for all.”
In the investment world of the future, not only financial assets such as deposits, bonds / stocks, investment trusts / ETFs / REITs, but also various assets that were previously accessible only to institutional investors and high net worth people will be unlocked for all by the power of digital technology. We are entering an era of liberation of new assets to individuals, such as smaller real-estate assets, infrastructure assets that form the basis of renewable energy, private equity that delivers new innovations to society, paintings and antiques that foster art and culture, wine and distilled liquor at the heart of food culture, and so on. In an era where individuals can freely select and access those assets, our investment horizons cannot be fathomed by a traditional financial approach. A brand-new alternative is needed.
WealthPark Lab will work with you to create a new and wonderful world where individuals and society are more intimately connected through investment than ever.
