Started in 2011 by Chris Elsmark, MBA, this site serves as the platform of an open-source knowledge sharing project to recognise outstanding thought leadership content for the professional investor community. Driven by his simple mission, "Better insights, less noise", this site offers a clean, minimalist reading experience to discover and share insightful professional investor content. Anyone can submit new thought leadership content, but the scoring mechanism reflects the number of upvotes by institutional and professional investors only. As this open-source project continues to grow, we welcome new members to join us as we migrate to the next generation of this site in early 2017; please click on "SIGN UP"
Our story is one of connection - among investors, asset managers, and their communities.

Since day one, Copthall Partners has been about inspiring, educating and motivating investment professionals to achieve their full potential. The growing membership base of our open-source knowledge platform has played an instrumental role in elevating compelling investment ideas and insights to asset owners and asset managers worldwide.
