Shaun Steward / Founder
Shaun created the concept and foundation of RAIC drawing from his 15 years in start-ups and an entrepreneurial background. Shaun has been involved in the creation and management of financial companies and delivers a simplifying approach to the education of financial concepts and investing strategies.
Shaun’s vision is to create a platform that offers an easy entry level into investing by creating a personalised education and investing program that anyone can use.
Shaun has always believed that the best way to create a successful enterprise is to include people in the process and share the rewards.
As such the RAIC concept is to work with you as a partner, not a client and to share with you the partner rewards.
