The Wealth Revolution: Javier Martinez Morodo’s Journey towards Democratizing Investments in Latin America

Javier Martinez Morodo has achieved the goal of democratizing investments in Mexico and Latin America through his vision of creating accessible products and services through digital means. This distribution method allowed him to reach many parts of the world, and in 2009 he created a digital area which he called GBM. GBM became one of the largest investment firms in Mexico, and 10 years later it was valued at over $1 billion, attracting capital from SoftBank, one of the world’s largest technology investors.

Javier has many other accomplishments in his career, including serving as CEO of GBM Asset Management, an independent company with over $5 billion in assets, and serving as Chief Strategy Officer in his later years at GBM. Under his leadership, the company grew its customer base from around 10,000 to over 2 million, and today GBM has a market share of over 90% and is a clear leader in the investment industry in Mexico.

After his successful time at GBM, Javier decided to join the Bitso team in 2021, taking on the role of Chief Strategy Officer and the challenge of democratizing financial services throughout Latin America. Bitso has also seen significant growth under Javier’s leadership, expanding operations to Brazil and Colombia and launching new products which have helped the company’s user base grow 5x in just one year, from 1 to 5 million users in the region. The company also raised a round of capitalization totaling over $2.2 billion.

In addition to his corporate achievements, Javier is an avid investor and fintech sector specialist. This is demonstrated by the creation of GOAT Capital in 2017. As an investor, he has participated in multiple signature investment funds in the region and has served as an advisor and consultant for a couple of them, such as Lvna Capital.

With all of these experiences, Javier is set to change the paradigm in the coming year. Starting in 2023, he is embarking on a new professional project to guide people through the wealth revolution. This revolution consists of a series of investment funds and specialized programs that will help people grow their assets. The purpose behind this goes beyond just helping people enjoy exponential wealth. Javier believes in the power of financial education and wants to empower people to take control of their financial future.

Through this project, Javier aims to provide people with the tools and resources they need to make informed investment decisions, and to give them access to opportunities that were previously only available to a select few. He is committed to helping people from all walks of life achieve financial freedom and security, and to create a more equal and just society.

Javier’s journey towards the wealth revolution has been driven by his passion for financial education and his belief in the potential of digital technologies to democratize access to opportunities. His successes at GBM and Bitso demonstrate his ability to turn this vision into reality, and his plans for the future show a commitment to making a positive impact on people’s lives through financial empowerment.
