🧠 What is The Informationist?

📚 We hear financial terms, phrases and acronyms all over the news and online these days. Problem is, we aren’t taught these topics in school. Expert investors and billionaires don’t explain or break down financial concepts when they talk about them. They use them obscurely to make themselves seem smart.

Smarter than us.

With this newsletter, I break down those information barriers—unpack and explain the concepts, make them accessible to everyone. To show you why the topics are important and how you can use them to your advantage.

Simple. Fast. Easy to read.

I hope you’ll subscribe and join thousands of others on the list.
