Alistair Bentley is founder and CEO of Simply Wall St, a Sydney based start-up helping people become better investors by turning complicated financial data into easy to understand infographics.
Al is a self-taught stock investor, who like many others had a painful experience when investing in stock for the first time. “The experience was just so bad I thought there surely must be a better way. It turns out there isn’t. So I decided to build it.”
Originally trained as a naval architect, Al is also the Australian freestyle windsurfing champion in 2013, 2014 and 2015.
On a daily basis Simply Wall St produces over 9,000 detailed infographics and visual analyses on all the companies listed on primary US, UK and Australian stock exchanges. The financial data is provided by Standard & Poor’s Capital IQ.
