“Instead of picking stocks, we’ll be picking people to invest in”

Steven Wang, founder and CEO of dub, said: “A decade from now, instead of picking stocks, we’ll be picking people to invest in. It’s already how my generation is investing, with the rise of social media and commission-free investing. Humans are narrative- and fear-driven creatures. Digitally-native creators have mastered the art of storytelling and are building fervent communities that leverage social accreditation to guide their investment decisions. With dub, we’re building the creator economy for finance.”

Nathan Rodland, co-founder of Robinhood, said: “dub’s copy-trading platform opens a new frontier in retail investing. As the first broker dealer to offer copy-trading, they are in a position to offer a truly unique product to investors.”
