I saw a spider with 8 eyes. And I was wondering, why don't we have 8 eyes on our investment advisor options? That's when we came up with Monica's Invest-agation service.
What it does
Our app uses FINRA data to help the user find an adequate investment advisor. Our search tool will filter the advisor individuals/companies and give useful background data needed to compare different options. Some data includes criminal history, court appearances, and jail bonds. These are important factors in choosing individuals and companies you plan on placing your money with.
How we built it
We built this web app with HTML, CSS, and Bootstrap on the front end. Mongodb, Python, and Flask on backend. Photoshop and Illustrator for logo and design.
Challenges we ran into
Data Base problems: parsing data, data analysis, understanding the data.
Accomplishments that were proud of
Connecting front-end to back-end. Processing data.
What I learned
I learned more about investment advising and the problems that run with it. We learned how to overcome many tech based problems.
What's next for Monica's Investigation
We will add more DATA. To combine both the current investment advisor search with information about stock price and future.
