Founder & CEO
Evan Liberman is the Founder & CEO of Wise Money Israel (WMI).
Upon realizing the lack of information and accessibility to the Israeli capital market for English-speakers around the world, Evan founded WMI to help others to participate in the exciting Israeli stocks, corporate and government bonds found only on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.
Evan holds a B.Sc from the University of California and is an Israel Securities Authority-licensed Investment Advisor. Raised in the U.S. and returning to Israel in his mid-twenties (1993), investing has always been a family tradition for him, coming from a long line of businessmen and financial experts. Evan himself has successfully invested on Wall Street and in Israel for many years. Evan also has rich experience in the Israeli and American high tech industries.
Evan is happily married to his Israeli wife Sarah, has three children and resides in Binyamina, Israel. In his spare time he enjoys movies, aerial photography, bowling and biking. He has deep Zionist convictions that come from his spiritual beliefs.
