Motif Investing Unveils Online Platform to Empower Individuals to Invest in Ideas; Appoints Arthur Levitt as Board Advisor and Sallie Krawcheck as Director
Jun 4 12
Motif Investing Inc. announced the launch of an innovative online platform allowing individual investors to buy specialized portfolios of stocks based on their own everyday ideas--and letting them share those ideas with friends. These customizable, theme-based collections of stocks, called motifs, represent a groundbreaking way for people to invest in what they know while taking control of their finances in today's volatile markets. Motif also is launching a new set of motifs in its investing catalog. They include "Lots of Likes," a portfolio of stocks representing the most-liked companies on Facebook, and "Income Inequality," a motif based on the growing divide between the "haves" and the "have-nots". The "Income Inequality" motif includes stocks of high-end and low-end retailers that serve society of extremes. Investors can choose from the current catalog of more than 50 theme-based motifs, with additional motifs being constructed on an ongoing basis. This year's top-performing motifs include "Biotech Breakthroughs" (21.3% year-to-date return), "Cloud Computing" (20.9%), "Home Improvement" (18.9%), "Housing Recovery" (16.2%) and "Hot Retail" (15.4%).
The company also announced that former Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Arthur Levitt and former Wall Street executive Sallie Krawcheck, both champions of the individual investor, have taken key roles at the company. Levitt joins as Motif's newest board advisor. Appointed SEC Chairman by President Bill Clinton in 1993, Levitt launched several pro-investor initiatives during his tenure at the Commission, including the www.sec.gov Web site and the Office of Investor Education and Assistance. Krawcheck, who most recently was president of Bank of America's wealth-management division and, prior to that, served as CEO of Citigroup's global wealth-management unit, has joined the board of directors.
