We are a diverse group of young(ish) entrepreneurs, financial analysts, engineers and data scientists. We came together over a common set of objectives and shared values, when it comes to investing and wealth-building. We strive to:
-> Build wealth sustainably -> Diversify our assets into newly accessible alternative asset classes -> Whenever possible, be mindful of an investment decision’s impact on our planet
When we started to look for a suitable, technology-enabled platform on which to implement these objectives, we got stuck before we could even get started. When asking friends, colleagues and other private investors, we quickly learned that we were definitely not the only ones desperate for a platform designed for long-term investors.
So we took matters into our own hands.
We decided to unite our complementary skill sets to build a technology-enabled, single platform solution to help long-term investors build wealth and plan their financial futures. Ziggma was born.
During our product beta through June 2023, no less than 25,000 users signed up, organically. We took this as serious proof of a real need for an independent, wealth-building platform on the part of private investors. With this very sizeable community of early adopters we have now set off to make Ziggma the world’s leading independent portfolio and wealth-building platform for private investors.
This our mighty core team, distributed across several continents.

David is our master of process and operations. Without him keeping tabs and prioritizing, a lot less would get done at Ziggma.
