Why this ‘Fearless Investing’ talk is drawing tons of attention

Here's why there's so much interest in Sandy Chaikin's talk at The Mill this week.

This Thursday from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at The Mill, Sandy Chaikin of Chaikin Analytics will offer a presentation on “Fearless Investing: How One Woman Gained Confidence to Take Control of Her Money.” The event is free, and there’s still time to register.


The event’s being hosted by Start It Up Delaware, and we’ve learned from them that the amount of registrations they’ve collected is already double their average for events like this. What’s up with the huge interest?

Chaikin began investing with no prior experience in 2012, and she told us she’s managed to create a portfolio that beats the S&P 500 and most money managers.

“I  would say what drives investors to come to my presentation,” Chaikin told us, “is that most investors, especially when they are starting out, lack confidence to make good investment decisions … so, they tend not to make a decision at all, or they make a bad decision.”

It doesn’t hurt that Sandy Chaikin and Marc Chaikin created Chaikin Analytics, a unique software platform that’s earned a quality reputation in the investing world.

The event's banner recalls the wartime propaganda poster featuring Rosie the Riveter.

The event has a female focus, too. You can see that with one look at its branding, but the event post details the point even further.


While this event is especially geared towards women, because women, in particular, are at risk if they don’t feel confident about investing, ALL are welcome. The statistics are staggering: 40 percent of women out-earn their spouses, and about 51 percent – which amounts to $14 trillion – of American personal wealth is now controlled by women. While 72 percent of women, however, do not feel confident making financial decisions, 9 out of 10 women are expected to be the sole financial decision-maker for their household at some point. Thus, it is critical that women become fearless investors.

This talk, and Chaikin’s goal, is about building confidence.

“My goal is to give investors the confidence and tools to make good decisions,” she said.

Chaikin thinks that anyone can be successful, and she offers that she’s “living proof you don’t have to be a financial expert to pick winning stocks. And, I demonstrate with stocks from my own portfolio how I decided to buy and sell them … so that you, too, will gain the confidence to be a fearless investor.”
