Titi Odunfa Adeoye is the Founder and Chief Investment Officer of Sankore, an investment firm that offers investment strategy, products, advice and technology to individuals and institutions.
Titi’s interest in financial markets began at the age of 13 and it grew into a passion when she began investing on her own for the first time at 17. Experiencing the tech bubble and losing significant amounts of money at that age made her passionate about understanding the rules and strategies that guide investments. Her skills in investment strategy were honed at firms like Goldman Sachs in New York where she was able to learn the intricacies of asset allocation and portfolio optimization. Her area of expertise is strategies for the creation, growth and preservation of individual or family wealth with a focus on "alternative" asset classes like Venture Capital, Real Estate and Agriculture due to the higher potential for financial and social returns. She is an active venture and angel investor across various sectors particularly those that impact wealth building in Africa. Her company, Sankore was the first institutional investor in most of its investee companies and continues to play an active role as a provider of very early stage capital to companies which are of strategic interest to it.
Titi has spent the last few years investing in the future of wealth management, culminating in the creation of a technology company called WealthTech that is focused on enabling the Wealth Creation value chain in Nigeria using cutting-edge technology. Within the past two years, WealthTech has built a range of products for Sankore’s use and for the use of other institutions, including Automated Trading Algorithms, RoboAdvisors, Asset Allocators and AI-powered Banking Bots. In an effort to democratize access to Wealth Management, WealthTech has recently launched Wealth.ng, Nigeria’s 1st Investment Marketplace, to provide curated investments and guidance to everyday Nigerians.
Titi holds an MBA from Harvard Business School, a BBA in Accounting (summa cum laude) from Howard University and is a Certified Public Accountant (Gold Award). She serves on the boards of Centurion Registrars, One Fi, Saunders Development Co and the Nigerian Higher Education Foundation.
