Cracking Buffett's Code: New Investment Platform Helps Investors Follow in the Footsteps of Warren Buffet -- Rising Sum, the investment specialist, has launched a platform (risingsum.com) that identifies investment opportunities using the acquisition criteria favoured by Berkshire Hathaway, Warren Buffet's highly successful investment vehicle. --
AVOCA, IRELAND, January 24, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Rising Sum, the investment specialist, has launched a platform (risingsum.com) that identifies investment opportunities using the acquisition criteria favoured by Berkshire Hathaway, Warren Buffet's highly successful investment vehicle.
At risingsum.com investors can identify true value investments by either using the platform's standard screening template, or by adjusting the settings to find companies that meet individual investment styles and preferences.
Investors can also enter their stocks into the system and find out if any of their existing holdings would pass the Buffett test, the Berkshire Hathaway acquisition criteria.

Spotting a gap in the market, Brian Kelly, founder and CEO of Rising Sum, said: "We're the first platform provider to use the investment model used by Warren Buffett and take a really fresh look at Value Investing. From our research we can see that, at any given time, 1% of companies in any index will be in the 'Buffett zone'. "
Kevin Ashby, chairman of Rising Sum, commented: "Independent financial advisers, money managers, asset managers, educators, banks and brokers can use the platform to provide their clients with valuable insights on a wide range of companies. Rising Sum's technology will help guide investment decisions with the same focus and precision that has proved so successful for Warren Buffett."
Rising Sum was founded in 2011, when Kelly created a proprietary investment screening technology called Alpha Slopes. This identified both Lubrizol and IBM as value investments before Warren Buffett invested close to $20 billion in these companies. Alpha Slopes enable investors to search for companies with consistent Returns On Equity and Earnings Power, the keys to identifying value investment opportunities.
Retail investors can also subscribe to Rising Sum's top 1% index portfolios, which identify the best value investment opportunities in the UK and US markets. We include value scores for those companies in the top 10% of each index, and select the top 1% for our portfolios. Subscription services begin at EUR29.99 per month.
