Interview with Shafqat Islam, Co-Founder and CEO, NewsCred

Tell us about your role and journey into technology. How did you start NewsCred? I spend most of my time managing the strategic growth of the company and learning from our customers about how our platform can help marketing organizations work better together to increase their performance. In college, I was a Computer Science major and afterwards, I went into banking at Merrill Lynch. The day I got married, I decided to quit and start NewsCred. It has evolved several times before becoming a Content Marketing Platform provider.

Harry Markowitz’s modern portfolio theory, which stems from his groundbreaking research in 1952’s Portfolio Selection, has led generations to believe that a well-diversified portfolio includes a 60% allocation to stocks and a 40% allocation to bonds. This cross-section of believers includes the 10,000 baby boomer investors who turn 65 each day and need their investments to generate stable income upon retirement.
