Our work is based on three fundamental values that guide our daily work and interactions with all of our stakeholders both external and internal. First and foremost we believe that trust is the absolute bedrock of any sustainable relationship whether it be professional or personal. In turn and for us trust implies clear and transparent communication, delivering on our committments, and accepting full responsibility for our actions including openly recognizing and correcting any mistakes while ensuring that they never occur again.
Second we believe that social committment is essential for any modern enterprise. Therefore we are committed to providing our user community not only commercial but also social value. In particular we are committed to helping small investors decisions attain realistic financial returns with lower volatility over shorter timespans. In doing so we are "democratizing" investment decisions such that small investors have access to the same information, which professional investors have long possessed.
Third we believe in mutual success for our entire community. In other words we constantly seek "win-win" situations, in which all of our stakeholders – users and customers, investors, suppliers and colleagues – together profit from our work. Only when we strive for mutual success among all of our stakeholders can we enable our own success and thereby ensure a sustainable long-term venture.
Our longterm goal is simple. We intend to help small investors augment standard investment approaches with active approaches that yield benchmark returns or better with lower volatility over timespans ranging over years instead of decades.
Our first major step in realizing our longterm goal is the execution of our alpha and beta phases over the next few months. During these two initial phases we will gradually introduce investment strategies and forecast data to the general public via this website and Twitter. In addition we will begin live-testing our investment strategies using our forecaset data. Overall at the end of these two phases in the summer of 2016, we aim to prove the legitimacy of our investment strategies and forecast data for small investors by proving that we can deliver benchmark or better returns with lower volatility over a comparatively short timespans.
And what is planned beyond the conclusion of our initial alpha/beta phases in the summer of 2016? Well we will concentrate on officially incorporating our company, consulting with investors, enlarging our user community, fine-tuning our investment strategies, and extending our forecast data. However we are adamant that we first prove legitimacy. Therefore and for the moment our focus is on our initial two phases over the next few months.
We intend to not only provide you upcoming information about our investment recipes and forecast data. As a result please regularly check this blog for both educational information and updates. In addtion we encourage all comments and feedback. Therefore please do not be shy! We very much look forward to hearing from you and begin developing lasting relationships with our user community.
