Lankershim Taft launches the website TaftResearch.com to bring an institutional style of equities research to all retail investors worldwide. “What we do in our Taft Research operation is bring deep institutional style of research and due diligence to the public through our analyst reports on different tickers”, said Kris Crudo, the Ceo, and founder of Lankershim Taft, a family office hedge fund operation focused on momentum-driven trading and investing strategies in the USA equities market. “At the moment, we have 6 senior buy and sell-side analysts with 2 to 3 intern analysts under them each. What we’re trying to achieve with Taft Research is to bridge the wide gap in terms of research between retail and institution investors. I’ve been a retail investor too before my career in Wall st, and I tell you this, the kind of information that retail investors are getting is not detailed enough to compete in the markets where everything is a zero-sum game. It’s almost comparable to bringing a knife to a nuclear fight and the probability of winning, although not zero, is still very low. With Taft Research we plan on releasing 7 to 8 detailed reports on different companies every day, and then evaluate from there the market demand for it. It’s an experiment for us really, either way, we’re making those reports for us. We do almost double of that every day with Lankershim Taft for our traders to consume, so giving retail investors worldwide access to those same reports would be an empowering moment for them, while at the same time adding an extra revenue stream for us”.
