Q: If our investment strategies are that good, why create a community and share with others?
A: Investing is for the long-term and not a zero-sum game. It is true that most of the basic information is available online but the value-add here is knowing which information to find and where to find it. By building a community, we believe that we can significantly shorten the learning curve of young investors as well as provide a platform for idea generation and debate for seasoned investors.
We also believe that no one has a monopoly of knowledge and everyone has something insightful to share from their respective domains. By tapping on the collective experiences of the community, the sum of the whole can be greater than the parts.
We have the opportunity and the ability to make a difference, so why not?
