An Islamic fintech company has announced that footballer Paul Pogba has joined them as an investor and brand ambassador.

He will be joining current brand ambassadors for Wahed Inc. (Wahed) - UFC Champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov and his team of mixed martial arts fighters.  

Paul Pogba and Chief Executive Officer of Wahed, Junaid Wahedna, met in September 2021. 

Pogba said, “After meeting Junaid and understanding Wahed’s mission, I knew I wanted to be part of it, because growing up we didn’t have access to a safe way to manage and grow our money.

"I hope that my partnership with Wahed will help show young people that there are ways to start investing the right way and it’s smart to start thinking about long-term financial goals early in life.” 

Chief Executive Officer of Wahed, Junaid Wahedna said: “Paul is a high-performing leader in his industry, which fits with the vision and mission of what we’re trying to achieve.

"We are very excited to welcome him as our new brand ambassador as we continue to reimagine a fairer financial ecosystem.”
