WeLab Officially Launches Its Digital Wealth Advisory Solution

by July 8, 2022

Hong Kong’s virtual bank WeLab announced that it has launched its digital wealth advisory solution, GoWealth Digital Wealth Advisory (GoWealth).

Customers can now kick start their personalised investment plan from HKD100.

In April this year, WeLab was granted Type 1 (dealing in securities) and Type 4 (advising on securities) licenses from the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission (HKSFC).

Following this, WeLab’s new offering received over 65,000 beta users over a two-month trial period.

GoWealth taps the investment expertise of asset management firm Allianz Global Investors (AllianzGI) to enable WeLab’s customers to reach their financial goals with an end-to-end approach.

It offers financial planning and investment portfolio recommendations to fund transactions and financial goal tracking within the WeLab app.
