For decades, our understanding of investing and financial markets has been skewed.
Misconception, dated information, and irrelevant ideas have made our investment decisions a lot less sharp than they could have been.
Certain ”gatekeepers” have created an aura of mystery and inaccessibility surrounding what investors actually require to successfully evaluate a potential investment.
Annual reports, stock market newsletters, and PR news releases (usually only good news) were about as analytical as you could get.
Well, unless you also had some insider knowledge, of course.
This has allowed too many ‘bad actors’ to cover up their losses and other uncomfortable truths tied to their own performance.
Ultimately, investors have been badly scathed all too often.
Few have had access to real-time, accurate, unbiased information. Not to mention thoughtful insight regarding changes in technology, regulations, or social dynamics. Noop!
It seems it has always been this way. Ever since the first financial markets were born.
The knowledge gap has tied in so well with the poverty gap. Mass communication and media have primarily been used to engineer predictable reactions that favor those who are in the know. And markets always remain “rumored and cornered.”
The problems for investors have only been compounded by having to pay exorbitant sums for investment advice. Through charges, commissions, spreads, exchange rates, and management fees, your take-home returns have been deeply eroded by such unnecessary expenses.
This makes investing difficult and stressful.
And sad to say, virtually every investor that feels ‘left behind’ is never able to catch up.
Between our 9-to-5 grunt, our social obligations, peer pressure, and our mortgages, we can often feel powerless in modern life’s ‘invisible prison.’
And the scary prospect of soon being replaced by the tides of automation, robotics and artificial intelligence doesn’t bode well for the future, either.
Being too exhausted to fight back, we would rather remain glued to our mobiles, staying actively informed but forever deluded. Getting used to knowing everything after the fact, we fail to keep learning proactively.
Ultimately, we end up never making the changes needed for greater prosperity in our lives.
No one – neither the educated, the rich, nor the powerful – has ever contemplated fighting back against such long-standing nonsense.
Until today …
The world is now awash with data.
And computing power and storage capacity have never been so cheap – nor so available.
Surely it makes sense for us to utilize this abundant resource to its maximum potential?
To capitalize on the trillions of terabytes of information out there by discovering patterns, trends, and behavior that we ourselves can process into meaningful, actionable investment insights?
REVOLUTIONS ARE BORN SLOWLY.
They bubble under after years of dissatisfaction – a feeling that something just isn’t right, and a conviction that there has to be a better way.
People don’t want to put up with the mountain of inconsequential fluff that’s stuck between information and investible ideas.
People don’t want to pay attention to advice that is neither useful nor meaningful.
But imagine being able to compile, curate, assess, analyze and execute the same kind of decisions that you currently pay for, by yourself, at no charge.
This is entirely possible today with data, software, and computing.
Data-driven investing is the future
You don’t have to be a professional to be a data-driven investor. All the information you need is out there in the form of data.
