The thesis behind Interactive Buyside is as follows.
The Wall Street Competitive Advantage
Individual investors have been disadvantaged too long in the investing world compared to larger firms that are in the know. Banks, hedge funds, mutual funds, and other institutional investors get continual access to:
- Important market-moving news as soon as it hits the tape
- Company CFOs, CEOs, and other contacts at the drop of the hat
- Wall Street research
- Each other! (Street rumors, upcoming catalysts, et cetera)
The typical information available to the average individual investor is from blogs, low-quality brokerage research, or other random news articles. IB’s goal is to tear down these institutional barriers and give individual investors access to compelling research opportunities.
