‘Investing is just for rich people’, ‘investing is a solo game’, ‘investing is boring’...well, not anymore.
To help us debunk these myths, we teamed up with Ed Westwick to create three films that show just how social the world of investing can be.
For those who haven't caught the videos yet, catch them here:
Myth no.8: investing is a lone wolf play
Investing has traditionally been a lonely craft. But not anymore. With Shares, investing is more fun with your friends.
Myth no.14: investing is boring
There's a common belief that investing is boring. And perhaps once, it was. I certainly wouldn't have fancied trekking down to the stock exchange and trying to deal with stockbrokers just to buy a few shares.
But the world has changed. Now, you can buy Netflix stock on the sofa watching Stranger Things.
Myth no.19: investing is for fortune tellers
No one can predict the future. Yep, not even Missy.
But with Shares, you can see what stocks your friends are investing in and their profit/ loss % on a trade, should they wish to share it.
We're not promising you'll become a millionaire overnight, but we are promising you a vibrant community full of aspirational investors to support you on your investing journey.
Ed Westwick's partnership with Shares
Time for the juicy details then, what are Ed Westwick and Shares up to?
Well, the answer is simple. Helping us to spread the word about social investing.
After a conversation with our CEO, Benjamin Chelma, Westwick joined Shares as a business partner, starring as the face of our latest campaign.
Of course, Mr. Westwick himself is already loving being part of the Shares family.
Behind the scenes: Ed Westwick × Shares
We’d be lying if we said we weren’t aware of the avid fan base Ed Westwick has.
And so we think it’s only fair we share some of the fun that was had behind the scenes during our filming.
Oh, hey there Ed
Ed wasn’t the only star on set that day
Lights, camera, action
Think we made you jump here Ed, sorry! 🤭
