Crowd Chaser: When Fund Selection Faced a Pandemic

The New Fund Order

05-09-2021 • 24 mins

Welcome to the New Fund Order. An Orwellian journey into the Darkside, the Frontier and the Fringe of Finance.

We speak with co-founder Oren Kaplan on creating his innovative global platform, the wisdom of the crowd, building community and insights against the backdrop of a global pandemic. In a more distanced world, is the real ‘new normal’?

"SharingAlpha went live in April 2016 and has already become the world's largest community of professional fund buyers.


  • Sharing Insight on the Many not the Few
  • No single research team can cover the wide range of funds available and thus typically focusing their efforts on a very limited number of funds, those with excellent track record have become blockbuster or 'mega funds'. Consequently, over 95% of the funds lack independent qualitative analysis and don't receive significant flows.
  • Using the power of the internet we are able to scale and offer forward-looking ratings on funds, from our community of professional fund investors, to share insight, to share alpha.
  • Recognising top fund allocators"
