STOP TRADING. START INVESTING.® – Not just a clever registered trademark.
Trading and investing are not the same. It’s true that both transfer wealth, but there is a big difference:
Traders, such as speculators, investment bankers, trading oriented broker dealers, clearing houses, and traditional exchanges (e.g. Nasdaq and NYSE) make money when there is a transaction.
Investors, such as asset managers and asset driven wealth managers make money when asset valuations increase. ISM owns equity in each ISM listed company. Our motivation is that the companies on our national stock exchange succeed and when they do, their investors and ISM should succeed.
It was a pleasant surprise to learn that our decision to focus on our listed companies’ long-term success instead of transactional revenue, Independent Stock Market could actually be more profitable.
