"I had to learn finance the hard way. The very first time that I had to take control of my finances was when I applied to Morehouse College and didn't have enough money for the loans, only enough money to stay in school for a year. I was faced with finding a way or making one. I was able to find funding to stay in school and decided that I was going to make sure no one else would be put in a situation where finances would be a barrier to their dreams. After graduation, I pursued a career working on Wall Street for some of the best corporations in the world and I have been taking these lessons, tips and ideas and bringing them to the common people.
I have been able to not only help myself, but my friends and family as well. I've helped them get from loads of student debt and bad financial situations to a space where they're now creating general wealth and I want to help other families do the same. I want to break generational curses. I know everyone's financial journey is different. I'm here to meet you where you're at, so let's get this bread."

It's all about creating Equity
247K Investments was created by Paul Adamson a finance professional that has spent over a decade in investment banking and financial controllership positions in fortune 500 companies and five years of teaching financial literacy. Our aim is to help bridge the financial wealth gap through education and empowerment. This is intentional down to our name. At the time of the company's founding the wealth gap for families of color was $247,000.
Very few families, especially those of color, have a strong understanding of financial concepts and wealth building strategies. Financial understanding and wealth building strategies are critical to the generational growth that most people aspire to. We at 247K think that these two skillsets should be common place in these communities and homes. Our strategy is straight forward. Decode financial concepts and myths to set a foundation of the basics of financial well being and wealth building and make things simple. All of the products and services offered by 247K are low cost and affordable so that the information that is needed reaches the people who need it the most, closing the gap one family at a time.
