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.
