Invest In Small Businesses With An Ecommerce Twist — Kickfurther’s Sean De Clercq

Posted on March 8, 2015 at 2:48 pm

Many people have grown tired of passive investing. Sure, the data show that the more remove the human elements — our evolutionary biases — the better we perform in the stock market.

But many investors are getting more and more excited about participating more with their investments (I believe that’s what’s behind much of the excitement behind angel investing).

Enter Kickfurther. Part investment platform, part crowdfunding platform, and part ecommerce site, this new company enables people to finance small businesses and earn an equity-like return. I’m Zack Miller, your host on Tradestreaming Radio, and I’m joined by Sean De Clercq, Kickfurther’s founder and CEO to discuss how investors are rolling-up their sleeves and helping the next generation of small businesses grow.

  • Getting financial information in the margins — with Akash Kapur

    Posted on December 23, 2014 at 12:21 pm UTC

    I don’t know about you but some of the most heated investing discussions happen after a company (say, like, Apple) announces earnings. Investors pore over earnings filings in pursuit for valuable information to support — or refute — an investment thesis.

    You’re going to want to check out Two Margins, a new site that allows investors to annotate and share content around regulatory filings. It’s like an editorial and opinion layer on top of these really valuable documents. I’m joined by TwoMargins’ Akash Kapur this week on the Tradestreaming Podcast to talk about how investors are finding value in sharing their own opinion on regulatory docs.

  • FeeX: The Robin Hood of (Investment) Fees

    Posted on November 17, 2014 at 2:03 pm UTC

    Investment fees can literally suck hundreds of thousands of dollars out of your retirement accounts over your lifetime.

    What makes this even more aggravating is that as investors, we aren’t even aware of some of the fees we pay because fund managers have gone through such lengths to obfuscate them.

    FeeX bills itself as the “Robin Hood of Fees” and Erik Laurence, the company’s VP of Marketing and Business Development, joins us to talk about why minimizing fees is so important for investors and what we can do about it long term to improve our investing returns. Thanks to Molly O’Brien, FeeX USA’s Marketing and Community Manager who joined us as well for this interview.
