Dear Readers,

What were you doing when you were 20 years old?

Chances are that, regardless of how accomplished you were at that age, you weren’t running a 20,000-member online community on pace for $300,000 in annual revenue.

That puts Vishu Namburi and Ishaan Sandhir in elite territory. Still undergraduates at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business, the duo are responsible for creating Eagle Investors, a wildly popular Discord server designed to help fellow Gen Z day-traders perfect their craft.

If you aren’t yet a subscriber to Investing Insider, you can sign up here.

Namburi and Sandhir unveiled their creation in July 2019, positioning them perfectly for the market’s recent rally from multiyear lows to near-record levels — and the accompanying spike in young retail-investor activity.

Business Insider spoke exclusively with the Eagle Investors founders to learn what makes them tick, and how they plan to responsibly grow the community at a time when day-trading is all the rage. We also spoke to their faculty adviser, one of the server’s moderators, and multiple active users of the platform to get the inside scoop.

Read the full story here.

Going beyond Eagle Investors, the Investing team at Business Insider has continued to survey and analyze the rapidly changing market landscape. See below for our best stories of the week, including a wide array of recommendations, strategies, and tips for navigating uncertainty.

Thanks for reading!
