I'm a founder of finbox.io, an online stock research platform designed for individual investors and asset managers who care about understanding a stock’s fundamental value. The platform provides a quick sanity check so that investors can understand what they’re investing in and why. Our tools have been featured in Barron’s Magazine on multiple occasions (https://blog.finbox.io/barrons-features-finbox-io/).
Prior to finbox.io, I worked for an investment banking group providing fairness opinions in connection to stock acquisitions. I spent much of my time building valuation models to help clients determine an asset’s fair value and believe these same valuation models should be used by all investors before buying or selling a stock.
