"The GPS for Investing": New Online Personal Investing Service Makes Smart Investing Accessible

Spotlight Investing (www.spotlightinvesting.com) is a web service that helps individuals build customized investment portfolios. The service guides an investor through the portfolio construction process and helps them create an investable portfolio that is designed to meet their unique needs and objectives. It delivers an institutional-grade portfolio construction and analytics platform in a simple, step-by-step approach, accompanied by learning and help throughout.

London, United Kingdom, May 27, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Spotlight Investing is a startup founded by investment professionals and based in the UK. It brings cutting-edge portfolio construction theory and practice, traditionally the domain of institutional investors, to the growing global personal investing market. Spotlight launches today after 3 months of closed beta-testing.

The Spotlight service focuses on developing an investment portfolio that is tailored to the requirements of the individual. The belief of the company is that a ‘one size fits all’ approach to building portfolios has meant individuals are much less likely to achieve their financial goals, and often have to be in employment longer than they need to.

Co-founder and VP of business development Mark Fricke says “personal investing has long been about stocks and funds, when really it should be about building a portfolio best designed to fit your overall investment needs. Investing is not simple or easy, but we’re trying to make it as accessible and engaging as possible – without compromising on accuracy.

“With our state-of-the-art platform, incorporating a large range of asset classes and a vast database of funds, combined with step-by-step guidance, you can rest assured that the portfolio will be robust and designed to meet your unique financial objectives.”

In addition to providing a powerful platform for portfolio construction and advanced analytics, the service holds investment education at its core. By offering ongoing insight and explanation to the user, Spotlight is designed to bring understanding, awareness and comfort to investors in an otherwise complex and turbulent environment.

“Understanding how emotional responses – fear and greed – influence decisions is as important as making sure your portfolio is diversified and efficient. Focusing on one or the other is only half the story. By considering all aspects of investing, including the intellectual and the emotional, we think we do for personal investing what the GPS has done for navigation.”
