On today’s Intelligent Money Minute, we welcome Aaron Klein the CEO of Riskalyze. Riskalyze is an investment risk software that powers the world’s first risk alignment platform that is built on top of a Nobel-prize-winning academic framework. During this episode, Aaron goes back to the beginnings of Riskalyze, and how he got inspired to create his risk analysis software.
At Intelligent Investing, our firm was built on the belief that improving investor behavior is crucial to long-term success. Unfortunately, we live in a society that has made almost a secular religion out of “investment outperformance,” and the average investor tends to misbehave and doesn’t just merely underperform the markets– they often underperform their own investments! The reason the average investor blows upwards of 60% of the return of the average fund over any given 20-year period is that he behaved inappropriately.
As Aaron mentioned, we want to transform fearful investors who make bad decisions into fearless investors who make great decisions, and over time improve their financial picture. To learn more about our philosophy, be sure to subscribe to our podcasts so you can stay informed.
