Why Do Expert Research?

While many individuals we speak to are unaware of the role expert interviews play for many professional investors, it is a $600mm industry. Many funds pay in excess of $100,000 a year just for a relationship with an expert network and over a thousand dollars per call. While these numbers sound staggering, many investors consider them well worth the money. Slingshot Insights’ sharing model has transformed the price of these calls for our customers and now we are making them even more affordable to you on the SeekingAlpha Marketplace for only $75 per month.
