Our small-cap hedge fund strategy beat the market by 44 percentage points since its inception 18 months ago. Visit our website to learn how you can do the same. Insider Monkey is a finance website that provides free hedge fund and insider trading data. We believe ordinary investors can beat the market by imitating insiders and best hedge fund managers. They have access to better information and experts than ordinary investors do. Take advantage of the SEC filings where hedge funds and insiders disclose their stock transactions.
Here is our team:

From a background perspective, I have a computer science degree from the University of Illinois, have held senior executive management positions in major IT and management consulting firms, live in the Chicago area with my wife, and enjoy golfing and cheering for Chicago sports teams.
