The Inversion Investor:

The Inversion Investor is the institutional insider’s and private wealth newsletter, with +200,000 reads and impressions by some of Wall Street’s biggest names.

Inversion investing begins on the fringes, using data points to extrapolate investment value and wisdom. Underpriced assets can be identified by distortions in the information and knowledge of the time. Value is then discovered with a realignment of insight.

Positions feed on attempts to invert them to conventional, mainstream wisdom, rather than efforts to promote them as outliers.
