The redesign of the Distressed Debt Investors Club was launched today with many improvements to the user interface and functionality. And we are just getting started. Over the next few months, more and more features will be added to the site to make members' experience better than it has ever been.
One of the requests I seem to get often is a listing of all the ideas that have been written up on the site. From now on, you can access a listing of names / tickers of all ideas ever submitted to the site from the main launch page. Or by clicking this link: All DDIC Ideas Ever Submitted.
It is my goal to close membership applications when we get to 250 members on the site. Members have access to all of the historical ideas on the site (including attachments which guests are unable to see) as well as the DDIC forum where I post 3-4x more frequently than I do on the blog.
A number of the largest hedge funds investing in distressed debt are represented (anonymously of course) on the site. And as the distressed market has effectively dried up, more and more actionable event driven ideas have made their way to the site which I absolutely love.
To those that are concerned with privacy, it is our policy to NEVER reveal personal information about the member or the member's affiliation (whether that be on the buy-side or the sell side). No users, outside of myself, can see personal information of other members except for the ideas that user has written up on the site. I oftentimes get background check service providers asking me if a member (who has placed the DDIC membership on their resume) is in fact a member. I fully ferret out these requests and get the member's consent before revealing even this type of information. In the next few weeks, I will have a letter that you can present to your compliance officer if you have concerns about our practices and disclosures.
For those that have questions or concerns about applying, please email me. The community we have built thus far has been remarkable and I only expect it to get better with time.
