This money will be spent on companies that do things with artificial intelligence and / or fintech. Foreman Rodford Vilar (43) is happy to be able to collect such a bag while working from home. ‘Personalization is very important in our business. This is really different from investing in a company. People often make a ten-year commitment, allowing others to invest their money.
