[prMac.com] Seattle, Washington - Alfstad Capital launches Profentia, a mobile App from which subscribers receive daily commentary on the workings of capital markets. As an Investment Adviser Representative of Commonwealth, Mike Alfstad utilizes state-of-the-art portfolio performance and analytics technology to present accurate performance data and shape the discipline of investment decisions.
With 30 years of experience in the fixed-income capital markets, Alfstad has an outstanding track record as an informed and intuitive advisor to institutional portfolio managers within the worlds of banking, the credit unions, trust companies, mutual funds and insurance companies. A respected figure in the fixed-income investment market; he is freely sharing his insights with iPhone and iPad users.
Inspired by the constant and confusing glut of financial commentary, in 1999 Alfstad began a daily email exchange between colleagues. "There is so much nonsense, sensationalism and bad reporting - noise - that makes it very challenging for professionals in the financial sphere to feel comfortable that they are grasping the critical issues and know the market moving realities beyond the last 30 seconds as presented on TV," said Alfstad. "Too often, the real story and the real risks are either overlooked or ignored by the mainstream media."
The Profentia App provides both a daily snapshot of economic conditions and unique market insights investors can use to gain a solid entry point for their own further research and analysis. Already a fixture on KOMO NewsRadio as a finance expert, Mike Alfstad applies a skill that is now second nature - distilling 24 hours of market activity into keen observations and predictions. For the first time, investors, CFOs, analysts, and business owners need not even be a client of Alfstad's to benefit from his daily examination of economic conditions.
