In case you were wondering why I haven’t posted for a few days, I do have an excuse. We’ve been busy putting the finishing touches to a completely revamped version of The Evidence-Based Investor, which we’re going to be launching any day now. TEBI.
As well as a new look, there will be new content, a better user experience and, most exciting of all, dedicated sites for different countries. As well as a UK site, there will be sites for Ireland, the United States and South-East Asia, with content specifically targeted at those markets.
We’re also going to be working more closely with evidence-based advice firms and other financial service providers, particularly with educational content, social media management and seminars for prospective clients.
Our aim, as it always has been, will be to give end investors, both individuals and institutions, the information they need to make better investment decisions. There will be no sales agenda or marketing spin, and our unremitting focus will be on facts, data and academic evidence, and on improving consumer outcomes.
The subject matter will remain broadly the same, but there will be more emphasis on areas such as behavioural finance and market history, and slightly less on the shortcomings of active money management. Don’t worry, I’m not going soft on the active fund industry, but there are only so many times you can tell people the earth isn’t flat. I suspect that many of those who still don’t get it either never will or for whatever reason simply don’t want to.
TEBI’s revamp is the result of several months of hard work by the team at Regis Media and a significant financial investment made possible by securing strategic partnerships with carefully selected companies around the world. We will, in the coming months, be looking to engage with potential partners in other countries to enable us to help as many investors as possible.
Thank you to all our readers, listeners, viewers, friends and supporters for helping us make such a big impact in a little over three years. Please join us for the next leg of our journey and help us change investing for the better. Together, who knows what we might achieve?
