Band of Analysts: Learn From Hedge Fund Analysts

Given the fact that many of our readers are hedge fund managers, analysts, traders and the like, we're always looking to share resources that are specific to this industry niche. At the same time, we also recognize that we have a large amount of readers who are passionate investors, employed in some other branch of finance, or are simply looking to break into the hedge fund industry. This resource is aimed directly at those readers. Here's your chance to learn from hedge fund analysts themselves in order to hone your understanding of fundamentals. It serves to bridge the gap between retail investing and the type of methodologies employed at many of the hedge funds we track here at Market Folly. Upon discovering this resource, we made it a priority to arrange a discount exclusively for our readers as the Band of Analysts team are Market Folly readers themselves. So, we are proud to offer you an exclusive 30% recurring discount to Band of Analysts with the code: MFolly.

Band of Analysts is a community of hedge fund analysts committed to sharing experience, knowledge, and most importantly, ideas. They give you access to the actual Excel financial models, Powerpoint presentations, and various other related materials regarding an actionable investment idea. Regardless of whether you're working in the hedgie world or not, this is an excellent resource. You can see an example of one of the Powerpoint presentations here. That lesson discusses event-driven investing with a particular focus on binary outcomes using CIT Group as an example. This is just one type of the many analytical resources that get posted on the site.

Undoubtedly, many of you are familiar with sites like SumZero or the Value Investor's Club. These communities are great tools to share your investment ideas, read others' picks and interact with each other. Given their exclusivity though, those sites are often reserved for industry professionals. Band of Analysts looks to break down that barrier by letting you learn from hedge fund analysts themselves. Their videos are literally as if you're looking over the shoulder of a hedge fund analyst as they explain their work. These serve as a great starting place to jump right into in-depth fundamental research. Secondly, they also offer many educational videos analyzing current situations. This is all on top of the discussion forums where community members can interact and really discuss what they're seeing in the markets. Their focus is on those of you looking to bridge the gap from retail to professional investor or from an associate in the financial world to an analyst at a hedge fund or major financial firm. We think their resource is an ideal fit for that portion of our reading audience and so that's why we wanted to share it with you.

In order to receive the exclusive 30% recurring discount, make sure you sign-up with the code: MFolly. We look forward to interacting with many of you there.
