Our Story

8 was co-founded by Mathias Helleu and Mikaal Abdulla. Before 8, they managed E*TRADE’s business in 15 countries spanning Greater China, Southeast Asia, India, the Middle East, Europe, and Canada. This was obviously invaluable industry experience but what they really wanted, was to develop something totally new, and unlike anything else out there. They seized the opportunity to build a simple and affordable mobile investing service specifically for young people.

Entrepreneurs at heart, they decided to build a totally new investing service to meet the needs of young customers. They saw traditional banks and brokers taking advantage of customers with complex and unaffordable products with high transaction fees and hidden costs. Aiming to solve this problem, 8 was born in 2012 with a promise of simple, transparent and affordable mobile investing solutions.
