Crowdfunding is nothing new, having been around since the late 1990’s.  Crowd investing is a more recent concept.  Take the Singapore-based Investing Note, for example.

Founded in 2014, InvestingNote is a free social networking site which enables interaction amongst retail investors and professional traders in Singapore and the South-East Asian region.  According to its tagline, the …

Wisdom  is in the Crowd

Their Knowledge, Your Gain

Get stock price estimates from real traders and investors. Make better decisions.

Members have access to experts stock estimates, research reports, advanced charting tools for technical analysis, market data from regional stock exchanges, as well as the ability to discuss trading ideas with other users.

According to the InvestingNote press release in early 2015:

“InvestingNote has built up a pool of financial experts and investors as users, including top-tier remisiers, stock educators, professional traders and prominent financial bloggers to share their opinions and knowledge.

The website has a formal verification process to evaluate the experts before they are awarded with a user badge to certify their competencies. These financial experts can build their reputation in the social media space through making forecasts and sharing their investing knowledge.

Reputation points are allocated to the financial experts when they gain new followers, garner ‘likes’ for their postings and have other users share their posts.  Through the points system, registered users will be able to determine the experts’ credibility and quality of posts. ”

Note: Investing Note is an ‘advice only’ site.  That is, you can’t trade (buy / sell) stocks using the Investing Note platform.  You’ll need to find your own (online) broker for that.

Key Features

Stock prices, including top gainer / loser and top percentage gainer / loser for the Singapore, US, Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia and Thailand markets
Portfolio Tracker, including the ability to manually enter transactions you’ve executed on a particular stock using your trading platform
Watchlists
Charts and advanced charting tools (probably the most sophisticated free tools I’ve come across for analysing the smaller South East Asian stock markets)
User metrics, including estimate rating, average returns, number of stock estimates, followers / likes / ideas, investing style (fundamental vs technical) and trading strategies
Search and / or filter by members ranking, topics and favourites
Read and share market news and analysis through posts and comments
Send private messages to other members

Oh, and did we mention it’s free?  No advertising.  No hooks.

You can also download both Android and iPhone versions of the mobile app (InvestingNote).

Best Suited For?

Just as crowdfunding suits a particular type of investor, so too does crowd investing.  Active retail investors focused on investing in South-East Asian markets with some investing knowledge, for example.

For these investors, Investing Note is a fantastic platform for exchanging ideas, gauging market sentiment and benefiting from high quality charting tools.

The generally more ‘frenetic pace’ associated with social platforms however, may not be a good fit for the buy to hold investor.  We see an opportunity for overwhelm and / or confusion for passive investors.

The novice investor should also beware.  The lure of a shortcut to investing – blindly following a tip by a top ten ranked member with over 1,000 followers – may not be the path to riches they might imagine.

Invest Like Warren Buffett With MeetInvest http://www.flatpackinvestor.com/crowd-investing/warren-buffett/ Mon, 06 Apr 2015 11:00:48 +0000 http://www.industrialthemes.com/techwise/?p=137 Invest Like Warren Buffett With MeetInvest

“We want to empower investors by giving them the same toolkits that the professionals have … [t]he financial world wants to keep this kind of information a secret but we have decided to give it away for free.”  So says Maria Jacquemai, MeetInvest co-founder.  Certainly a headline grabbing statement.  Who doesn’t want to have access to Wall Street’s secret toolkit?  It’s also a potentially powerful example of how FinTech companies, like MeetInvest, can democratise stock market investment.

So, what is MeetInvest?  Essentially, a free expert based stock screening (picking) tool in a social networking wrapper.

At its core, are over 50 investment strategies codified in formulas (algorithms) derived from the models of around 30 of the world’s most respected investors.  Think Warren Buffett, Peter Lynch, Benjamin Graham, William O’Neill, and Martin Zweig … to name a few.

Each algorithm runs on a daily basis filtering 69,000 stocks across 128 countries, with performance back-tested to January 2000.  Effectively allowing users to ‘replicate’ the stock-picking, buying, and selling decisions of investment legends.

If this, and the fact that the founders of MeetInvest have active portfolios with significant sums invested, hasn’t already sold you on the platform then you’re probably not going to be sold.

For those still reading, according to its founders, MeetInvest’s purpose is to allow members: ‘[t]o easily source and access the most promising stocks and allow users to make better investment decisions.  To achieve that last part, and recognising the risks of blindly following buy / sell recommendations (even those of the gurus), MeetInvest also provides a targeted ‘Insights’ section.  These ‘Insights’ broadly describe the investment strategies underpinning the algorithms, how and when to buy and sell, as well as the characteristics needed to become a competent investor.

And the final piece of the MeetInvest offering?  Social networking features which enable you to interact with other members and further your learning.

Note: Meetinvest is an ‘advice only’ site.  That is, you can’t trade (buy / sell) stocks using the MeetInvest platform.  You’ll need to find your own (online) broker for that.

Key Features

Free (completely)
Global market coverage
User-named stocklists based on proven, back-tested investment strategies across multiple stock markets
Share allocation recommendations for each stock meeting the criteria in your stocklist, based on input of the amount you have to invest
Daily, weekly or monthly ‘buy /sell / hold’ e-mail ‘recommendations’ for stocks in your stocklists – based on whether the stocks have either met, or failed to meet, the algorithm’s criteria throughout the period
Personalised news feeds based on users followed and groups you’ve created or joined
Active discussions on shared interests across more than 800 categories

Best Suited For?

Time poor equity investors with some investing knowledge and who are not willing to hand over their coin to someone else to manage (not even Warren Buffett?!).

Stock picking tools such as MeetInvest are great time savers, provided you don’t forego the minimum due diligence necessary for informed stock market investing.  As sophisticated as the algorithms developed by MeetInvest may be, additional research will always be required.  As a bare minimum, you must understand the reasons you’re buying (which in turn provides the basis for selling).  If not, you may as well give it to someone else to manage.

What Others Are Saying

City AM (UK) 7 April 2015:  Users can choose to replicate the behaviour of established gurus: “you can decide what systems you like according to your risk profile,” says [co-founder] Michel. He likens it to “offering people the recipes” – then they decide what they want to cook. And the social element means that, all the while, you can be chatting to fellow investors.

The Daily Telegraph (UK) 12 January 2015: All the investment models are explained using plain English, which is crucial to the MeetInvest model.  According to a study of 2,000 adults commissioned by meetInvest and undertaken by YouGov, 45pc of people find the stock market “confusing”.  Some 39pc also said that they would be more likely to invest in the stock market if they had access to free and easy to understand information.

However, the CIO from a global private bank, who preferred to remain anonymous, warned: “It is not enough to rely on these formulas – you must do your own research, and you have to measure risk. If you’re right, you make money but if you’re wrong you could lose everything.” A spokesperson for JP Morgan Asset Management declined to comment on MeetInvest’s new business model or its consequences for traditional investment firms.

Nutmeg Spices Up Wealth Management http://www.flatpackinvestor.com/united-kingdom/wealth-management/ Mon, 06 Apr 2015 10:00:56 +0000 http://www.industrialthemes.com/techwise/?p=161 Spice Up Your Wealth Management With Nutmeg

Nutmeg is a UK-based online wealth management platform founded in 2011 providing access to fully managed investment portfolios.  Your friendly private banker / financial advisor / wealth manager / [insert title here], not required.  As at time of writing Nutmeg has over 95,000 registered users.

Why Nutmeg?  Simplicity, transparency, low cost and low ‘barriers to entry’.  Nutmeg’s CEO, Nick Hungerford, is fond of noting that:

“Before Nutmeg, personal wealth management was only available to people with £250,000 or more. Everyone else had to use DIY platforms and complete investment analysis and asset selection themselves. This was a problem: not everyone with less than £250,000 has the time or knowledge to decipher the implications of a Fed rate hike on Japanese equities”.

According to Nutmeg, this accessibility doesn’t come at the expense of performance.  They employ a team of wealth management experts who actively monitor and rebalance each of their 10 model portfolios.  They also publish the portfolios performance to enable easy comparison with traditional wealth managers.

Fees?  Gone are the complex fee structures in typical wealth management models where, if you’re lucky, value and returns are clear … but the amount it costs you to generate them are not.  Nutmeg’s fee structure consists of: a management fee of between 0.3% and 0.95% (including VAT), based on how much you invest, and 0.19% in average underlying fund costs.  The fund costs compares to the UK active fund average of 1.58%.

Nutmeg’s investment model is simple, too.  The Nutmeg team invests primarily in low-cost ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds).  One of 10 diversified portfolios are then allocated to you based on a short questionnaire that asks you to specify your time horizon, investment goals and risk appetite.  All via a simple dashboard-style interface with easy-to-use sliders for selecting risk levels and amount to invest.

Note: Nutmeg has recently received permission to offer financial advice (rather than just investment products) from the Financial Conduct Authority as at Apr 20, 2016.  Expect something new from the team soon.

Key Features

Low and transparent fees (savings of between 0.29% and 0.94% over the typical wealth manager)
No knowledge required: 10 diversifies portfolios ranging from cautious to aggressive based on your individual risk appetite and personal investment goals
Create as many funds as you like based on a combination of investment aims, time horizon, amount to allocate and risk
Top up, transfer or withdraw your money whenever you like, without penalties (except for emergency withdrawals)UK retail investors with
Access to real people when you need them, via telephone email or live webchat (we hear the service is excellent, too!)

Best Suited For

Investors that will particularly benefit from a Nutmeg-style platform will likely have the following characteristics:

UK retail investor
Who sits on the lower end of the financial literacy scale (or who has little interest in managing their own investments)
Doesn’t have large sums to invest (but would like to benefit from expertise that is usually reserved for those with higher sums)
Values low fees

For other investors, particularly more sophisticated / knowledgeable investors, they may still wish to allocate a portion of their funds to Nutmeg.  For those that enjoy a mutually beneficial relationship with an existing wealth manager, why fix what aint broke.

For other investors, particularly more sophisticated / knowledgeable investors, they may still wish to allocate a portion of their funds to Nutmeg.  For those that enjoy a mutually beneficial relationship with an existing wealth manager, why fix what aint broke.

Getting Started

Nutmeg has wisely chosen to let potential members ‘test it out’ first.  The whole process takes less than 10 minutes:

  • Go to www.nutmeg.com and click on the ‘Test It Out’ button
  • Choose the type of account you’d like to start with: General, ISA (tax-free investment) or Pension (401k)
  • Select whether you’ve investing to reach a particular goal (e.g. wedding, house) or, simply, to invest
  • This takes you to the fund building screen, from which you then select the timeframe for your investment, your starting amount and monthly contributions, as well as your risk level
  • Voila!  You’re presented with a variety of ‘snappy’ graphs showing your projected returns, the breakdown of your model portfolio and the returns of comparable portfolios over the last 20 years
  • Finally, you complete a more detailed risk assessment to confirm your initial choices (takes about 5 minutes), before entering relevant personal and bank details to get started.

 

For those that wish to go ahead and sign up, note the minimum up front investment of GBP 500, with additional GBP 100 monthly instalments.  If you’ve got a spare GBP 5,000, the GBP 100 monthly requirement is waived.

Importantly, there are no withdrawal fees or early redemption penalties.   If it’s not for you, you walk away at a time of your choosing.

In the world of wealth management there are very few who are so forgiving.

What Others Are Saying

Euromoney, March 9, 2015: The UK fintech start-up will manage your wealth for a small, transparent fee. Is this the start of a shake-up in the protected world of private banking? In a business where fees are invariably opaque but investors can often pay 1% to 2% in management charges to advisers on top of all the other underlying costs for individual funds in their portfolios, plus start-up fees of up to 3% and other friction costs for adjusting portfolios, a 0.3% fee is an absolute game changer.

Professional Wealth Management (pwmnet.com), 3 August, 2015: Nutmeg, the online investment company, set out to deliver solutions to those clients who would not have interested traditional private banks, says CIO Shaun Port, but is also attracting those much further up the wealth ladder.

What Shares? A Stock Screener for SGX Traders http://www.flatpackinvestor.com/adventurous/stock-screener/ Sun, 05 Apr 2015 12:00:42 +0000 http://www.industrialthemes.com/techwise/?p=121 WhatShares Stock Screener Scanner

WhatShares launched in April 2016 and claims to be the first publicly available, real time stock scanner in Asia.  Nonsense, I hear you say.  What about investing.com, stockflock, and Google Finance (to name a few).  Fair enough.  You caught me.

WhatShares is actually a stock scanner (as opposed to the ‘garden variety’ stock screener suggested in the article title).  The key differences being that, unlike a stock screener, a stock scanner:

Analyses live streaming data
Is used by prop traders, active traders and dealers / brokers
Doesn’t usually include fundamental data or financial ratios; and are
Often developed for in-house use by prop desks and hedge funds

Publicly available scanners are a rarer breed as they crunch millions of data points in a single trading session.  A stock screener only needs to capture one line of data after the market has closed.

Clear?  No?  Then let’s talk about what WhatShares actually does.

WhatShares provides real time market intelligence on the SGX, identifying volume and price triggers to generate alerts for active trading in 3 categories:

The top 20 most active gainers right now
The top 40 highest volume gainers today
Gainers with unusual volume today (because volume often precedes price)

According to WhatShares: “If a stock was to make a significant move today, it is most likely to come from these categories.  If you were to make a significant winning trade today, it would most likely be with one of these stocks.”

Why?  An oft quoted rule of profitable trading is not to “buy low, sell high”, but to “buy high and sell higher”.  New traders generally buy when prices have fallen, looking for cheap stocks. Professionals buy because prices are rising.

WhatShares have also recently included down side alerts so traders can identify which stocks are being sold down in real time.

Key Features

Easy to use interface
Simple, targeted set of alerts for the active trader
Only publicly available scanner covering the Singapore stock market (SGX) – give the hedge funds a run for their money!

Best Suited For

Active traders of securities on the SGX.

There are as many trading strategies and indicators out there as there are fashion labels.  The trader, like the fashionista, will have their favourites.  WhatShares focuses on 4 stock movements – Breakouts, Breakdowns, Uptrends and Downtrends.  If that ensemble takes your fancy, put on your party shoes and go crazy.
