Why Vambora?

Working in the financial services industry, I’ve witnessed the challenges that newcomers face on a daily basis. Immigrants and international students experience a “starting from scratch” feeling, having limited access to products and services. This can become increasingly overwhelming when trying to establish a new life in a foreign country while navigating cultural changes and language barriers. With this experience in mind, I joined forces with Amadeu to build Vambora.I’ve always had a passion for helping people, and through Vambora, our team has the opportunity to enrich the lives of millions by getting them started on the right path in this exciting new chapter of their lives!
