CAYMAN ISLANDS, Jan. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The team behind Real Vision Television—who believe high quality financial information shouldn't be a privilege for few but a right for all—is expanding into the investment research publishing business with Real Vision Publications. The subscription-based platform, launching today, aims to revolutionize the current research model.
"People should demand finance be taken seriously—and not treated like entertainment," said Raoul Pal, CEO and co-founder of Real Vision. "Financial content should be independent, high-quality, engaging, without bias and delivered on a design-focused platform that creates the best overall experience possible. These values propelled us to launch Real Vision Television and to now enter the research market with a solution that replaces the existing model that promotes fear, sensationalism and spam."
Real Vision Publications will publish more than 100 different financial perspectives a year from over 30 of the world's best research writers and covers market viewpoints and investment horizons across all major asset classes. An annual subscription starts at $299. Interested subscribers can visit www.realvisionpublications.com to sign up, with a 30-day money back guarantee.
To run the publishing arm, Real Vision Publications has brought in investment banking veteran Adam Newman, CFA as CEO. Newman brings more than 15 years of experience in financial markets and research production, and has a deep knowledge of the best thinkers, writers and commentators to bring into Real Vision Publications.
"We want to give the average investor the same quality of information that the world's best hedge fund managers receive," added Newman. "Our mission is to democratize finance and fundamentally flip the traditional, hugely fragmented investment research business on its head. The quality and accessibility of Real Vision Publications is about to change everything."
Pal added, "Just like in the financial television business, the average investor is being sold substandard investment research with no ability to source and filter for quality. This industry is ripe for disruption. Using our compass bearing of high-quality curated content, we treat our customers with integrity and deliver it all on a stunning platform."
Real Vision Publications' content library includes downloadable research reports and contributor background videos, and is accessible from desktop computers, mobile devices and tablets. Built-in bookmarking and note-taking features help document the most important content to the subscriber. A comments section allows for discussion of the research and encourages debate and the sharing of ideas—a key feature of the Real Vision ethos.
Initial contributors on the publishing platform include: economist and the founder of MacroMavens, Stephanie Pomboy; The Felder Report's Jesse Felder; co-founder and managing partner of Macro Intelligence 2 Partners, Julian Bridgen; Chief Economist at Asianomics Ltd., Jim Walker; and Real Vision founders Grant Williams and Raoul Pal. Each contributor will be published from one to six times a year on a whole range of topics such as foreign exchange, equities, technical analysis, commodities, fixed income and more.
Real Vision Television was born out of Pal and co-founder Grant Williams' strong desire to democratize financial information, and give investors of all levels the tools to better understand the risks and opportunities during unprecedented economic times. The co-founders saw the need for a subscription-based service that featured independent, high-quality, curated financial video content that goes beyond the three minute sound bite and offers in-depth interviews and presentations with some of the world's leading finance experts. It allows guest to create the narrative by removing any editorial bias.
"Real Vision Television avoids the conflict of interest that's inherent in traditional financial television that's funded by advertising and sponsorship," added Pal. "One of the reasons that the 2008 financial crisis was so severe is because investors, savers and homeowners were let down by financial media that failed to report on the growing risks and their severity. We can't stop the business cycle, but we can help better prepare people."
