Who knew that in January 2021 we’d be talking about GameStop? But if there’s one thing we’ve seen this week, it’s the power of the crowd. A band of retail investors like you and me has shown just how much they can accomplish when they work together for a common goal. And sadly, much of Wall Street and the institutional investing world has not reacted positively to this show of strength.
Just imagine what could happen if those retail investors brought that same focus to the private markets. With startup investing, there’s no trading app that can limit your investments. There’s no ability for a hedge fund manager or institutional investor to restrict you from investing in the next Google or Uber. I think this GameStop saga has really illustrated how the public market doesn’t have the best interests of retail investors at heart. And that’s why I think the expansion of the private markets and the growth of startup investing is so exciting. It’s the chance at real wealth generation that we all deserve.
