Hi, I’m Tomie
I make it easy for millennials and GenZs to learn how to invest correctly in Africa and create wealth with credible investment opportunities.

The Green Investment Club (TGIC) , presented its investment report spanning the past 3-years, at a media parley in April, 2021.
Recognized as one of Africa’s fastest-growing investment clubs, The Green Investment Club (TGIC) was established 3 years ago to provide financial education and credible investment opportunities to millennials in Africa.
Themed “The Money Moves by Today’s Young Nigerian“, the event was attended by corporate investment partners, members of the club’s advisory board, finance enthusiasts, members of TGIC, and members of the Nigerian press.
In response to multiple emails from my e-mail commnunity, I launched a community-based investment club called ”The Green Investment Club” for millennials ready to break the pay-cheque cycle and build investment portfolios.
We started with 35 members in August 2017 and currently have 1,700+ members, resident in 26 countries, who have invested $17m+ in Africa so far.
Who says Africans can’t invest in Africa?
Financial Literacy Campus tour to the 6 biggest universities in Nigeria
Thanks to Pensions Alliance Limited (PAL Pension), I got the opportunity to speak at 6 universities with an average attendance of ~2,000 students in each university.
It was humbling to to interact and listen to the next generation speak about their money goals and share why they want financial freedom to live the lives they want
Financial literacy tour to the African Leadership University in Kigali,Rwanda
This was my first international speaking engagement and it was such a delight to see how similar we all are in our interest in financial literacy and learning how to make better money decisions.
My book was featured as the No.1 new release in the crowd funding category when it was launched on Amazon in May 2018 and ranked No. 6 in the Amazon bestsellers rank
I had the opportunity to interact with millennials across the country on my book tour. At each city stop, I was reminded of how interested our young people are about financial literacy and making better money decisions
And why we need to amplify our voices as financial educators and get more financial institutions to do the same.
Our Economy’s future depends on this.
This is my foray into core media with a focus on democratizing financial education to as many millennial black people as possible across the continent of Africa and in diaspora.
(What I’m up to these days)
I have evolved my community, TGIC and digital platform, Twelvevest, into one company, Twleve. Twelve is set to be the new home for investment communities.
I am the current CEO of Twelve, a Fin-Tech company that provides a platform for online communities of millennial investors in Africa to discuss investment opportunities openly with friends, find new connections, and make investment decisions all in one place.
I am looking forward to more local and international partnerships that focus on educating millennial investors and online communities in Africa in a way that drives economic growth, financial inclusion and reduces the rate of poverty in Africa.
ENJOYING MYSELF IMMENSELY
I’m focused on finding a balance to life and work priorities. I’m working on meditating more and staying grateful always for the opportunity to do all that I do.
