Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 25, 2013
Covestor (http://www.covestor.com), an online marketplace for investing, announced today that it is hosting the Boston Viewing Party for the TEDxWallStreet conference on Wednesday, October 30.

This year’s theme - Filling the Void - will be addressed by over a dozen leaders from finance, business, technology, entertainment and journalism. They are slated to speak about local, global, social, and economic voids and share their thoughts on how to fill them.
- Bob Woodruff (Renowned TV journalist)

- George Whitesides (CEO of Virgin Galactic)
- Mary Ellen Iskenderian (CEO of Women’s World Banking)

“Both TEDxWallStreet and Covestor seek to provide a space for innovative perspectives on the evolving investing industry,” said Covestor CEO Asheesh Advani. “We believe that Covestor is filling a void by providing people with access to talented portfolio managers that they could not find on their own,” he said.
“Not all great portfolio managers work on Wall Street,” Advani continued. “The Internet allows us to discover, vet and provide people with access to compelling investment strategies from portfolio managers around the world.”
Covestor has created a smarter way for people to find portfolio managers to invest with. The company allows clients to see what dozens of experienced investors are buying and selling in their own portfolios and learn the rationale behind those investment strategies. Clients can select from over 130 investment portfolios, either by choosing investments online or with the free assistance of a client adviser.
Created in the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading,” TEDxWallStreet is a local, independently organized TED event created as a part of the TEDx program. At the event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection among attendees from Wall Street’s leadership. Videos of the talks are available post conference for online viewing.
