Some investment firms use the analogy of a ship navigating through the choppy seas into calmer waters, and others of an investment starting as a seed and growing into a strong oak.
Both are good analogies, they project movement, growth, change and guidance through times of adversity, something we are all aware of in these times. That’s essentially what a good investment manager will do.
But it doesn’t demystify anything, and it doesn’t hand you control. The investment world is still shrouded in a cloak of secrecy.
What constitutes a good investment idea? How do analysts come to these conclusions? Are they reliable predictors of the future? These are the questions non-professionals have on their lips.
Well, there’s an Upside.
The team here has developed an ecosystem to allow growth and understanding of the world of investing. We use nudges to help users understand how and when to pick ideas, and develop their research and analytical skills so that everyone can become an investment manager.
Developed over eight years by a team of braniacs, Upside was born from knowledge gained running one of the largest and most successful hedge funds globally. Upside pits students against professionals, uses AI and data science to get users to develop skills they never knew they had.
At Upside, we don’t use tree analogies; we’re about research, testing and time. Because we know there’s a science to being right.
