Networking forum a worthwhile investment
Thursday, November 10, 2011/
Investable is a free ideas exchange and networking forum for the financial market, enabling more accountable and transparent discussion around Australian listed shares and securities.
Chief executive Ben Freischmidt says the forum allows investors to share ideas and strategies in an environment unpolluted by nicknames, unsubstantiated comments and non-disclosed interests.
“Our policy of disclosing real identities in all member activity, and not permitting member guises, sets Investable apart from other forums,” Freischmidt says.
According to Freischmidt, the site is designed to appeal to a universal audience – from the novice retail investor all the way through to the most sophisticated investment professional.
“Members will be able to initiate investment ideas on the site and then track the performance of them,” he says.
Freischmidt says a major benefit offered to members is the ability to interact with others via their own “closed networks”, which means they control who sees their ideas.
As investors come to expect more bang for their buck, forums such as Investable will certainly prove popular. Can you think of other ways to make the investment landscape more transparent?
