⚡ Zash Community Update 11: Watchlists, Creator of the Week, & More...

Building the future of retail investing

Dear All,

Happy Tuesday!  Each week we update you on our latest happenings, developments, product updates, and more. 

Why? Community is at the heart of our product. We want you to be part of the crucial steps of our product development. You can read all of our previous Community Updates here.

Watchlists Coming to Zash 👀

As we continue to drill down on our product, we recently completed the integration of our intricate financial data infrastructure layer with IEX Cloud, to help users build their own watchlist. IEX is one of the world’s best financial data providers, for both equities and cryptocurrencies. We’re looking forward to sharing this feature with our users very soon!

Creator of the Week 🧠

In this week’s installation of our Creator of the Week spotlight series, where we highlight some of our most engaged Creators across the community, we have Founder of Afrolift, former Goldman Sachs Algo salestrader, and Oliver Wyman Consultant: George Oduro - Here’s a little bit from George:

  • What do you generally like to invest in? US Equities (Tech), Robo-advisor ETFs, Crypto, and bootstrapping my own business Afrolift.com

  • How would you describe your investing style? Thematic conviction plays. Stick to industries I know pretty well or am deeply interested in and willing to invest hours of research. Then buy and hold.

  • What industry/company’s future you’re excited by and why? I’d say Snowflake ($SNOW). Huge opportunity in enterprise data management, sticky product, strong exec team.

  • What’re your thoughts on Goldman Sachs’ recent Starling investment? Investors seem to value profits over growth much more than they did 5 years ago.

  • What do you love about the Zash Community? I love how the community has put on my radar things I was less aware of and have subsequently invested in. For example Crypto, DeFi, and Alternative Proteins. It’s an incredible pool of expertise to have access to, especially to hear how people think about things.
