Independent Equity Research For Professional Investors

Disruptive Tech Research is a technology research and advisory firm serving the investment management community

We provide independent, targeted research to support the generation of investment ideas and facilitate effective investment decisions.

Our unique focus on patent-filing activity allows us to identify the most promising disruptive technology trends early. Then, we employ an original, bottom-up fundamental research approach to uncover micro- and small-cap companies that are underfollowed, underappreciated and undervalued.

We share our expert analysis and insights with registered investment professionals and qualified firms via our real-time investment research-as-a-service.

We also offer custom consulting services to institutions, government agencies and corporations.

Our mission is to provide clients with differentiated, actionable and exceptionally thorough fundamental research at a cost effective price.

We’re 100% independent. That means absolutely no pay-to-play arrangements, no hidden agendas and no hype. Just solid research. And yes, we eat our own cooking.


Our Founder: Louis Basenese

For the last decade, Louis has been providing independent economic and equity research for individual and institutional clients.

A former Morgan Stanley investment consultant, Louis helped direct over $1 billion in institutional capital before leaving and co-founding Wall Street Daily, which quickly became one of the web’s largest financial publishers with a daily circulation of more than 700,000 readers. In 2014, he founded Disruptive Tech Research to pursue his investing passion, and fill the void in the market for high-quality, 100% independent research on disruptive technologies.

Louis’ expertise has earned him regular appearances on CNBC’s Closing Bell, as well as other media mentions, including in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Morningstar, MarketWatch, TheStreet.com and MSN Money. Louis holds an MBA from the Crummer Graduate School of Business at Rollins College.
