Stories From Our Founder - Early Beginnings

“In early 2014, Cloud Atlas held its inaugural meeting. First on the agenda was to pray and what followed were months of building what would become the biggest Pan Africa ex-SA ETF manager on GOD’s Green Earth. In building a business it is important to build on a vision and purposefully act to achieve that vision for the benefit of all.”
