Herbivore Raises $15 Million In Series A Funding Led By Silas Capital Editor’s Comment Welcome to the Q3 edition of Wealth & Finance International Magazine for 2019. Every issue we endeavour to provide fund managers, institutional and private investors with the very latest industry news in the traditional and alternative investment landscapes. Putting aside, at least for the time being, the tumultuous stock markets and dire warnings from financial experts on the topic of an ‘imminent’ global recession, we are focusing – as ever- on more optimistic shores. Take, for instance, Inbound FinTech, a multi-award-winning growth agency that specialises in the financial sector. In the years since its establishment it has proven a crucial tool for the sector’s shining stars as they look to capitalise on a wealth of opportunities. Group CEO Sheila Mitham took a moment out of her busy schedule to tell us more. In a very different vein, we profiled MPA Financial Management to see how they have thrived in their role as Independent Financial Advisers. The key to the firm’s success has always been their ability to serve their client’s best interests, helping them to achieve a secure financial future. Here at Wealth & Finance we sincerely hope that you enjoy reading this issue and, as always, we look forward to hearing from you.
