Forget about your real estate portfolio and that management buy-out bonus. According to Zachary Trebbi and Joshua Kiley, education is your most valuable asset when it comes to finances. How can you maximize the value of what you have if you don’t have it? How can you make sure your nest egg lasts into retirement and beyond? TikTok celebrities turned online stock market educators are on a mission to spread financial literacy.
There is no age limit to begin learning about finance, claims Trebbi. It is never too late to begin your path to greater investment knowledge. Zachary Trebbi and Joshua Kiley are enabling the typical Joe and Jane to take control of their assets through their online education program and educational Tik Tok movies.
They are the co-founders of CEOWatchlist, a platform originally created to provide information about the trades of well-known CEOs of corporations on social media. Their education program was established as a result of the rapid virality of their videos, which was made possible by their high-quality material.
According to Zachary Trebbi, “the term CEOWatchlist was born out of the original idea of imitating and tracking the trades of CEOs, but the actual business model was born out of a need for accurate education in a social media-filled world full of misinformation.”
A problem with online financial education is misinformation. One of the main problems Trebbi and Kiley face is the widespread use of incorrect information and guidance. Because of this, they consider knowledge to be one of the most powerful tools that an individual can possess. According to Trebbi and Kiley, “We provide our students with the opportunity to learn how to have their money work for them.”
Zachary Trebbi and Joshua Kiley believe that with a little bit of trustworthy knowledge and some hard effort, the common individual who wants to improve their financial future can have the independence and potential to become financially free.
They attribute their rise to the pandemic’s urge toward at-home investing. According to Trebbi and Kiley, “during the pandemic, there was a clear rush to the stock market and investing in general.” With academic backgrounds in mathematics and economics, as well as family participation in investment, the duo is now on a mission to enable people with little or little prior knowledge of the stock market to make informed judgments about where to put their money.
Trebbi and Kiley believe that knowledge is power. It could be the most significant asset for new investors in particular.
