Why Red Envelope?


Red Envelope Wealth Management holds a special significance for Chris Lowe, stemming from two formative events in his life.

Firstly, during the Chinese New Year dinners hosted by his grandmother, Chris observed the tradition of adults gifting "Lai See" or red envelopes, filled with symbolic amounts of money, to children while imparting wishes of prosperity. These red envelopes symbolize not only financial fortune but also good health, luck, and happiness.

Secondly, in 7th grade, Chris' math teacher introduced the class to the stock market by initiating an exercise where they tracked the gains and losses of an imaginary portfolio. This exposure ignited Chris' passion for investing and personal finance.

Combining these influences, Chris envisioned Red Envelope Wealth Management as an office rooted in the values of prosperity, good fortune, and financial well-being, drawing upon both cultural traditions and a lifelong fascination with the world of finance.
