Fortu Wealth is a new type of digital private banking solution. The startup was bootstrapped by two friends (now co-CEOs) who worked previously in the banking and wealth management sectors. The digital product created by Fortu Wealth offers payment solutions and foreign exchange, alongside personal and business banking solutions.

Fortu Wealth offers simple, efficient and seamless banking solutions, something that most private banks don’t offer in the market space. This unique product feature helps grant their clients quick access to high value payments, instant foreign exchange rates and direct access to the market trading floor.
