Making Investing Fun

The founder of Brains, Christopher Poillon, began his career working for a leading bank in Hong Kong and China, and spent the years after learning more about investing on a global level.

“For me, investing has never been about
investing in companies, but rather investing
in ideas, movements, and people.” - CP

Author of “Getting Started in Emerging Markets” (Wiley), Christopher created the Brains system based on a higher macro-economic global perspective, and then gamified the process to make investment a more enjoyable process.

Investing Based on Psychology & Vision

Brains was designed to look at the whole of a person – their view of the future world, personal interests, and lifestyle – and craft personalized portfolios unique to each person.

“Why are all investment websites so boring and predictable? Why hasn’t anyone invented a platform that helps you invest how you see the future of the world?” - CP

And so Brains was born, designed for every person, no matter what your beliefs and vision are… from those who envision a future utopian society on Mars, or streets filled with zombies.

A Global Community

Christopher has brought together experts in behavioral psychology, economics, finance, and technology to build a community investment platform where people can meet others to share their vision of the future, and learn how to invest in a supportive environment.

In the next few years Brains intends to expand to other countries, bringing people together in one global community through sophisticated artificial intelligence and language translation tools.
