CrowdCent is on a mission to decentralize investment management by changing the way hedge funds operate. The current system is stagnant and ripe for disruption because it relies on a handful of "smart" people in a room to make investment decisions, which are often subject to bias and other cognitive errors. This system has been optimized for the distribution of wealth to an elite few and has little incentive to change. By removing artificial barriers to entry and increasing performance accountability, CrowdCent is flipping the hedge fund model on its head.
We’re starting with online investment communities where knowledge sharing and collaboration can be incentivized to crowdsource investment ideas and create better investment strategies than any individual could create on their own. We add a machine learning layer that acts as an AI portfolio manager, which then allocates capital to the best investment opportunities. Our AI never gets tired of reading investment ideas and even gets better at picking ideas over time. Additionally, our AI portfolio manager can even explain why it is making each investment—something that no human manager can accurately do. These explanations allow for full value attribution down the investment decision stack.
We are so confident in our machine learning models that we are launching a hedge fund that is solely powered by ideas submitted to online investment communities, including our own at crowdcent.com. Our AI portfolio manager that runs this fund is trained on the data behind tens of thousands of historical investment ideas, including natural language processing and fundamental, financial, and macro data points. Our models are trained with the goal of outperforming select market indices on average, and over time.

CrowdCent is democratizing opportunities for investment analysts to earn performance and quality-based compensation for their ideas and strategies. Whether you’re an experienced hedge fund analyst or a complete novice, CrowdCent is a pure meritocracy where ideas are judged only on their content and diligence. This allows for a more level playing field and provides a new avenue for talented individuals who do not have the connections or resources to enter the hedge fund world. For too long, the hedge fund industry has been closed off and secretive, but with CrowdCent, anyone with an internet connection and a good idea can become a hedge fund analyst. Starting today, you can sign up at crowdcent.com and control real capital based on your ideas.
Crowdsourced Investment Process
As a bonus, contributors who post new ideas on crowdcent.com/forums will have their idea performance tracked, receive instant feedback from the CrowdCent AI portfolio manager, and gain access to a community of savvy investors to discuss and debate their investment ideas.
We are building a community of like-minded individuals who are passionate about investing and believe that the current system is broken. We are looking for contributors who approach the investment process with a bottom-up, fundamental value investing lens. We are asset agnostic across equities, fixed income, crypto, etc. Our goal is simply to create a more efficient, open, and transparent way to invest and share investment ideas. In the spirit of true decentralization, we are building infrastructure to return the value created by this community back to its contributors. We believe that this new model will lead to better investment decisions, more accountability, and ultimately, better outcomes for investors.
The Virtuous Cycle
We don't just stop at our community–we want to work with all types of investment clubs and communities to turn their data into actionable portfolios that will return value back to their contributors. We envision a future where each community has its own fund run by CrowdCent’s AI portfolio manager.
