Lou Basenese

A renowned technology analyst and investor, Lou Basenese left Wall Street in 2005 to become a financial publishing pioneer. Since then, Basenese has been credited with over 25,000 technology-related essays, covering every meaningful trend and boom over the last 16 years — from immunotherapy to Bitcoin… smartphones to artificial intelligence… 3-D printing to biometrics… and beyond.

Basenese also regularly lends his wisdom and expertise to major broadcasting and media outlets like Fox Business and CNBC, among others. A tireless advocate of Main Street investors the world over, Basenese has founded (or partnered with) over 10 multimillion-dollar businesses, and he’s even helped deploy capital into startups and other embryonic technologies.

With his deep market insights – the result of helping to direct over $1.5 billion in institutional capital for Morgan Stanley – these days, Basenese serves as Chief Investment Strategist for Trend Trader Daily; a free, no-nonsense publication that bridges the information gap between Wall Street and everyday investors. Underpinned by Basenese’s 16-year track record, Trend Trader Daily identifies the market’s biggest, most impactful, paradigm-smashing trends – ones with the power to radically impact lives and fortunes. Basenese is also the Founder of Disruptive Tech Research, a leading technology research and advisory firm that focuses on patent-filing activity to identify the most promising emerging technology trends.
