We have seen some of the largest firms struggle and at the same time there have been some real success stories. With a wealth of unstructured data out there on the internet growing rapidly by the day, it is great that firms like First To Invest have found smarter ways to leverage that data and turn it into consolidated and accurate insights. Day by day the IOWArocks story is developing and has become a very compelling proposition to anyone in the investment or trading community.”
