And why are we called inbestMe? Our name comes from joining the terms investment + best + me, which mean in other words "my best investment".
It all began in 2013 with a daughter and her father, when he lived abroad. His daughter had savings, but no investment know-how. Her father had the knowledge, experience and was eager to help. After going to the bank and dismissing that because of poor returns and high commissions, he decided to help his daughter by preparing a personalized investment plan using indexes. "What a pity so few people can get to invest their money like my daughter!" lamented her father.
They say that travelling opens your mind, that's what happened to her father. Because he lived in a more developed society and culture, he found that technology could help him bring that way of investing to many more people. He quickly came to think: "I have to help more people improve their investments." When he got back to his home country, he began talking to his friends about his project. Those friends talked to more friends. In the end the idea caught on with a few of them and together, in 2014, it all began. Today that father, Jordi Mercader, is the CEO of inbestMe.
inbestMe has a dual mission: to help our clients enjoy better management of their savings, and to enhance their financial nous. We have been successfully carrying out the first by being the most personalized automated manager in the country. The second is accomplished by constantly generating content and financial education events. Our values: transparency and humanity.
