We level the playing field
Hunting Data was founded because we believe that in today’s digital world everyone should have equal access to information:
All companies should be able to communicate their story and engage with the modern market.
Old Wall Street
Big banks serving big companies: Research is focused on blue-chip companies listed on major exchanges. Access to that research is limited to a privileged group of investors.
Most companies are left out, leading to: Insufficient coverage -> lower market visibility -> less investor interest.
Retail investors are ignored since they traditionally represented a small % of the market.
The retail investor base has grown to +25% of all trades. They desire open access to easily digestible information about interesting companies and they actively discuss potential trades online.
Institutional investors have taken notice:
- Actively monitoring retail investing behavior and factoring it in to their trading decisions.
- Focusing on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) activities that appeal to retail investors.
A modern Solution
Hunting Data provides an efficient, digital solution to enhance market visibility and boost investor engagement. We level the playing field:
- Companies engage with a broader audience.
- Potential investors learn about new companies.
- The communication gap is closed and the market is captured.
