Our story began in New York City, where Hyun and Kibeom were passionately debating on investing philosophies at the cafeteria corners of Google Chelsea office.
We came from opposite worlds - Hyun came from the Wall Street world where institutional wealth capitalized on resources and analytical rigor while Kibeom came from the Silicon Valley world where engineers made fortunes from the growth of BigTech and startup dreams. Hyun was an active investor by profession, Kibeom was a passive investor by nature; Hyun believed in the power of research and analysis, Kibeom felt knowledge and technicals can only do so much.
Nonetheless, we both strongly agreed on one thing - Retail investors are trapped in a huge information gap and lack of discipline. We wanted to bridge that gap.
So our journey began. We envision a world where everyone can become an intelligent investor and grow their wealth in the likes of Wall Street hedge funds and Silicon Valley capitalists.
Join us, change the world.
