For the Experienced Investor (aka Captains)
The fact is, there are a lot of wealthy investors out there today who don’t get the recognition they deserve. There are millions of investors today that are waiting to learn from the best.
We utilize the following technologies
Cloud computing infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to access on demand hardware and software platforms in the most cost-efficient manner. Public cloud infrastructure enables us to maintain operational redundancy and data backup in separate instances and availability zones to maximize data protection.
We implement the data and operational security technology and procedures necessary to meet requirements defined by the Gainwise business and financial regulators.
We adopt a combination of facial recognition, video recognition with depth analysis, scanned document recognition, multi-factor authentication and address verification in near real time.
As a social investment platform, it is important for Gainwise community to create an ecosystem which fosters the high-quality exchange of information between community members while filtering out the bad information.
We build analytics into the platform from the outset, based around the core principle of the customer. And we use this information for recommending the most valuable investors, identify trends and filters irrelevant information.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning play an increasingly important role in the Gainwise platform as data is collected. We use AI/ML in areas such as sentiment analysis, trading pattern analysis and portfolio recommendations.
We continue to track developments in this technology closely and gradually introduce new capabilities for things such as digitally signed assets verification and decentralized identity, for example.
The development of Application Programming Interfaces (API’s) will be one way for us to partner with other technology companies to build a truly broad platform in the shortest possible timeframe and on the most cost-effective basis. This is key to our integration and extension of our investing platform.
Today’s investment products and platforms have lost touch to some of the most common core values that attract loyal clients – trust, innovation, & transparency. That’s exactly what Gainwise founding values are built upon.
With Gainwise, you can buy and sell a range of investment products within our social marketplace, that connects you with other consumers and experienced investors known as Captains.
Our team is comprised of banking and technology experts with significant experience delivering world-class banking products and services for some of the largest financial institutions on earth. We are passionate about utilizing technology to meet the needs of a new generation of investors.
We’re building the platform that will shape the way you and I invest in the coming future, and this ride isn’t one you’ll want to miss out on! Join our growing waitlist to be among the first to help us shape the investing future:
