Democratizing Hedge Funds with Composer's Ben Rollert
Play • 44 min

Joining Marshall this week in the Deep End is ODF alum Ben Rollert, CEO and Co-Founder of Composer. Composer allows its users to easily build a portfolio of hedge fund-like strategies.

After we ended last year talking about DeFi and other blockchain innovations with cypher, it was refreshing to have a conversation about innovation in traditional finance, particularly in the retail investment space.

The rise and sustained success of apps like Robinhood have enabled the manifestation of a legitimate counterculture among retail investors, including those like Ben, who work in finance. 

In this episode, we discuss that counterculture, the advantages of optionality created by something like Composer, nuance in regulation, and why Ben stays crypto aware even when he’s not a crypto evangelist.

This was a good one. If you’d like to learn more about democratizing hedge fund strategy, check out or follow Ben on Twitter @Benrollert
