Welcome to Proven Self Investors. I am Perry Blacher, one of the founders of Covestor. The idea behind Covestor is to give investors better value and greater transparency by enabling them to invest alongside any private individual who is managing their own money, rather than just putting money into an expensive ‘professionally managed’ fund.

We are going to use this blog to tell you about what is happening at Covestor but more importantly to help to recognize the "unsung heroes" of investing: those doing the hard work only for themselves. I hope this highlights the depth of skill and expertise ordinary people are out there bringing to bear on their investments, and the truth about some of the ‘fat funds’ which are beneftting at their investors expense.
