Welcome to The Integrating Investor, a different type of investment market blog.  Rather than create a site dedicated to generating trade ideas – something that many others already excel at – we want to build one focused on digging into the specific issues and events that are driving market trends.  Speaking philosophically, we want to know what a certain market force is in order to determine what we ought to do in order to profit.  We call this our “is-ought” investment approach.

Reality. Reason. Investing:  These are the core tenets that underpin our approach.  Our goal is to uncover potential investment themes (Investing) by more thoroughly examining (Reason) certain complex and abstract issues (Reality) that may be misunderstood or taken for granted by the mainstream consensus.  If we’re lucky, we’ll uncover some variant perceptions and become better investors along the way.

We encourage you to follow us or subscribe to receive email updates.  We’ll never spam you or sell your information; we’re after knowledge, not a quick marketing dollar.
