The Leadership – La Royale Investments Group

Joan Beaufort

Joan Beaufort, Founder

Joan Roger Beaufort is a French entrepreneur born in Alsace in 1988. He leads a number of companies in various sectors, including finance, gaming and connected real estate. Joan’s strength lies in his constant drive to innovate and learn.

After passing his baccalauréat, he began studying at Epitech Strasbourg, a logical choice for this technology enthusiast. After six months, he decided to abandon his studies and focus on launching his own business, Rainmaker, a company specializing in digital marketing and affiliation.

The fast-track training he received turned him into a skilled manager. Today, Rainmaker is a benchmark in affiliate marketing.

A self-taught web pioneer, Joan is a nomad who follows the wave of skilled developers: Latvia, Russia, Ukraine, Cyprus, Dubai and Singapore, Joan knows he has to be constantly on the move to meet the expectations of this new world.

In 2018, he ventured into gaming, another logical step for this video game fan. Here, he has developed an outstanding experience with a strong principle: always put yourself in the customer’s shoes to ensure their satisfaction. The success of this approach has earned Joan a reputation as an expert in this sector, which he continues to develop worldwide from his base in Malta, a flagship state for online casinos, through his company La Royale Gaming Investments.

Payment systems are also key to the development of his gaming activities, which is why he is naturally interested in Fintech.

He joined Oxford University’s FinTech program to deepen his knowledge and acquire the skills needed in the sector.

He has made new payment systems and FinTech a priority by acquiring Global Star Finance, his own EMI which already held an FCA UK license operating under the TPF brand, providing innovative, simplified and ultra-secure financial services.

But Joan has gone one step further by creating an investment fund, La Royale Fintech Investments, which aims to support and develop innovative fintech projects, particularly in the field of digital payment facilities.

He is also the head of La Royale Properties, which builds and renovates fully secure, connected and environmentally friendly buildings and villas.

Joan is also passionate about cars, both as a team sport and as an innovative industry, and about wine, which embodies French culture. That’s why he has created two companies to bring digital efficiency to these two sectors: JRB Wines and JRB Motors.

Joan’s ambition is to share his expertise in digital transformation and innovation, and to develop inventive, disruptive and secure projects in powerful and strategic sectors.
