International football icon Paul Pogba joins Wahed as a brand ambassador and investor

Wahed Inc. (Wahed), a global Islamic fintech company, announced that French professional footballer Paul Pogba has joined them as an investor and brand ambassador. He will be joining current brand ambassadors, UFC Champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov and his team of mixed martial arts fighters.  

Starting his football career at the tender age of 6, Pogba is well known for being part of the Premier League club Manchester United and the France national team, operating primarily as a central midfielder.

Both aged 29 yet in vastly different fields, Paul Pogba and Chief Executive Officer of Wahed, Junaid Wahedna, met in September 2021 and found common ground in Wahed’s mission to make ethical investing as accessible and affordable as possible, cementing Pogba’s partnership with the global Islamic fintech.

Pogba noted, “After meeting Junaid and understanding Wahed’s mission, I knew I wanted to be part of it, because growing up we didn’t have access to a safe way to manage and grow our money. I hope that my partnership with Wahed will help show young people that there are ways to start investing the right way and it’s smart to start thinking about long-term financial goals early in life.”

Wahed currently offers individuals the chance to invest their money ethically in a quick, easy, and affordable way. Wahed has gained support steadily since its inception with over 300,000 clients globally across all Wahed entities.

“Paul is a high-performing leader in his industry, which fits with the vision and mission of what we’re trying to achieve. We are very excited to welcome him as our new brand ambassador as we continue to reimagine a fairer financial ecosystem,” said Chief Executive Officer of Wahed, Junaid Wahedna.

What is market volatility and why should you care?

The stock market has been very “volatile” throughout the year 2022. During the early stages of COVID-19, the stock market was "volatile.” Haven't we all heard the term "volatile" too many times in stock market discussions or market commentaries? But what does it actually mean in this context? Let’s find out. Basically, “volatility” occurs when stock markets experience frequent and unpredictable price movements, either up or down. A more technical definition is that volatility is the standard deviation of a stock's annualized returns over a given period and indicates the range within which its price can rise or fall. To simplify, a stock is said to have high volatility if its price fluctuates rapidly in a short period.Factors such as political and economic conditions, company performance, earnings reports, and interest rate decisions can all contribute to market volatility.
How do banks make money?

How do banks make money?

Banks, like any other profit-driven business, issue charges for the services and products they offer. These services primarily entail accepting deposits. Deposits are funds that people place in the bank with the understanding that they can withdraw them at any time or at a predetermined future date. But what do banks do with all of the money they receive as deposits? Here’s where a lending system comes into play. A significant amount of money the bank receives in terms of deposits is lent to other people. Loans are borrowed for homes, automobile purchases, education or personal requirements. Banks also provide loans to businesses that are looking for capital. While deposits and loans only play a small role in the overall banking game, the vital business of most banks is when interest is earned through this exchange. Profits start rolling in from interest earned by the banks!
