Today Wall Street Survivor launched its new homepage (you must be logged out to see it), providing users with a straightforward introduction into the Wall Street Survivor experience! This fresh and modern design outlines the steps you need to take in order to become financially savvy. Allowing you to learn, practice and earn your way to the top! But that’s not all…
With the entire Wall Street Survivor site getting a full head-to-toe makeover in the coming weeks, this upgrade is just a preview of what is yet to come. You will see an improvement in the design and functionality of our site as we modify our stock trading mechanism, the layout of our courses, our site-navigation system and much more. Needless to say, our excitement is through the roof!
Surely the aesthetics and mechanisms of Wall Street Survivor are very important, however this isn’t just a random transformation. The modification of our website’s core purpose is what we’re really getting excited about.
Here’s a not-so-fun-fact: According to the Employee Benefit Research Institute, 86% of American workers aren’t confident they will have enough money to live comfortably in retirement.
Here’s another not-so-fun fact: The Institute for Policy Studies analyzed the breakdown of financial investment ownership in the U.S. and found that half of America owns a measly 0.5% of America’s stocks, bonds and mutual funds.
Our economy is meant to function in a way that everyone has the opportunity to benefit, not just these guys. Yet how can those of us who don’t understand how our economy works, benefit? We believe that the first step in improving our economic situation is to improve the quality of financial education and widen its outreach.
Wall Street Survivor is striving to bridge the gap between those who have access to extensive financial knowledge, and those who don’t. We believe that personal finance and investing topics should be common knowledge. This is just one of the many driving forces behind the establishment of our new Courses series.
Wall Street Survivor is reshaping financial education with one goal in mind: to demystify the world of finance.
