CEO (Chief Executive Officer)
“I grew up in a rural area and my grandparents owned a couple of cows. The cows were the bedrock of my family’s finances and that got me thinking, cattle are like a walking bank and we see ourselves as the bank of the future, where every person who owns a cow can access financial services through Livestock Wealth, just like it has always been in Africa.”

How it Works
Yes, you can invest from anywhere in the world, as long as you are able to transact using the available payment methods on our platform and have a bank account into which withdrawn dividends can be paid out when the time arises. We accept Credit Card, EFT and Direct Bank Transfer.
At the end of the term, you no longer own the asset as the farmer has bought it back from you. You can choose to reinvest in another asset or collect your return, paid out into your bank account.
Yes, the profits we advertise are guaranteed as the assets are insured by the farmer.
In the event that something happens to your asset, it will be replaced at no extra charge.
We accept Credit Card, EFT and Direct Bank Transfer.
The farmer buys back the asset once it has fully grown at harvest. You, the investor, make a profit from the sale. Your return (initial investment + profit) can be reinvested in one of our assets or you can be paid out into your bank account.
No. The farmer buys back the asset once it has fully grown at harvest. You, the investor, make a profit from the sale. Your return (initial investment + profit) can be reinvested in one of our assets or you can be paid out into your bank account.

I am part of an investment club/company/trust. May I register my organisation onto the platform and invest as an organisation?

For security and safety reasons, ad hoc are not permitted. Livestock Wealth hosts annual events at the farms to which investors are invited.
Our Free Range Ox and Pregnant Cows are grass fed and hormone free. Our Macadamia nut trees and connected gardens are grown organically with no harmful pesticides or chemicals.
Farmers have the skills to grow assets but they may need more working capital. Banks and conventional funding methods do not accept growing crops as collateral. Livestock Wealth finds investors for farmers, helping them to access capital whilst their livestock grows.
We provide a service to investors who may not have the skills nor the time to farm for themselves. We enlist the qualified farmers to take care of our investors assets and work towards our projected returns.
