Dear readers, A sentence about Delphia being the first-ever investment advisor that will let people invest their data alongside their money erroneously implied this data was already being processed.
TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / October 14, 2021 / Today many retail investors see Bitcoin, NFT artwork, and even sneakers as viable alternatives to stocks and bonds. To respond to this growing interest in alternative investments, investment platform Delphia has launched a dedicated alts newsletter named "Alt Class" which is hosted on Substack.
"The traditional 60/40 investment model is outdated", explains Andrew Peek, CEO and Co-Founder of Delphia which makes quantitative hedge fund strategies available to retail investors for free. "Last year Preqin predicted AUM for alts would hit $17 trillion by 2025, a 60% increase from $10.74 trillion at the end of 2020. While the bulk of this growth has been driven by institutional investors looking for diversification and higher risk-adjusted returns, there's also been impressive uptake by HNW individuals and retail investors."
Helping Retail Investors Access Alts
According to Peek, this rapidly-expanding sector has great potential for both retail investors and institutions, but it can be hard for retail investors to access good quality research and accurately assess opportunities. "If you want to look at hedge fund-like strategies, prediction markets or fine art, for example," commented Peek. "It's a question of how much time do you have available and which of these things do you want to focus on."
"Alternative investments all require significant research and understanding before you part with any capital. That's where Alt Class comes in by providing regular updates and in-depth analysis on different alternative investment opportunities. Our mission is to make it easier for retail investors to get up to speed faster and make investment decisions which are right for your portfolio."
Alt Class releases a weekly newsletter on Substack covering the whole alternative investments sector from a retail investor's perspective. Topics ranging from fine art and sneakers to private equity, NFTs, and cryptocurrency.
Investment Tools For A New Reality
As well as making alternative investments more accessible to retail investors, tech can also help them achieve better returns. Peek's company, Delphia, is an AI-powered platform that turns user data into algorithmic investment strategies. Peek himself is no stranger to big bets, having opened Shopify's Product Labs division after selling his last startup to the e-commerce behemoth.
"While hedge funds and big institutional investors use machine learning algorithms trained on user data all the time, there's nothing like that available for individual investors. At Delphia, we want to level the playing field. We believe that by pooling data like Amazon purchase histories, Robinhood trading data, and social media activity from our members, we can build an algorithmic trading strategy that rivals the world's best hedge funds. Think of us as the first-ever investment advisor that will let people invest their data alongside their money, in order to pursue better returns."
