The investment trend
I love the concept of investment 3.0, a de-centralised, community powered investment ecosystem.
It is a trend that we’ve seen emerging for years. Morgan Stanley launched a product called alphas many years ago, and since then lots have banks have followed, allowing investors a chance to ‘copy-trade’ hedge funds.
Sector swap and delta trading desk guru’s have created baskets of stocks to track the big names in investing.
This trend has arrived in the retail day trading app’s too, such as Etorro and Robinhood.
This next phase is going to be amazing, the mega trend of the last 20 years of passive (or pactive?) investing, and the new sudden emergence of trading apps, is going to combine — we believe — in a trust driven active investment world. And its going to change everything.
Concepts of nudge and wisdom of the crowds, or “bees” as Dr. Jae says. Will all come into being.
Imagine a 24 year old shop worker in Kinabalu, a 44 year old single mother of one in Stockholm, a 62 year old retired metal worker in Phoenix, they’ve never met, but together they form a super-forecaster, together, their collective intelligence picks tremendous companies. Imagine that world, its here!
