Inside the Analysis - EP03

On this episode of Inside the Analysis, Trevor Noren sits down with What I Learned This Week analyst Damaris Colhoun to discuss whether the multi-decade megatrend towards consolidation can actually be reversed. And if so, what are the implications for investors?

Trevor Noren

Managing Director, 13D Global Strategy and Research

Trevor joined 13D in 2015, after a decade and a half in the tech and media industries. His primary focus is on how the algorithmic revolution is transforming industries, cultures, politics, and financial markets. He has led the firm’s analysis of the escalating backlash against big tech, the tech cold war between China and the U.S., and the meteoric rise of rules-based investing, among many others.

Damaris became associated with 13D in 2015, after more than 12 years working in media and investigative journalism.

Her coverage focuses on the internet, digital trends and culture, and the ethics of new technologies. She writes extensively about how Facebook is changing societies and the disruption of traditional media. Her analysis of the backlash against Big Tech and the rise of authoritarianism has been ahead of much of the news cycle. Corporate consolidation, millennials in politics, and labor movements in the U.S. are other trends she studies closely.

He has led the firm’s analysis of the escalating backlash against big tech, the tech cold war between China and the U.S., and the meteoric rise of rules-based investing, among many others.

He has consulted with top think tanks, news organizations, and investment firms on emerging themes in technology, bringing expertise on consumer trends, market risks, and global technology policy. His analysis has been featured by The Financial Times, The New York Times, and Bloomberg. Trevor believes that when algorithms coexist in complex systems with the subjectivity and unpredictability of human decision making, unintended consequences result. His aim is to recognize and understand those consequences before they manifest.

Prior to joining 13D, Trevor worked as a reporter in the Bay Area, a technical writer for Google, and a Creative Director for Showtime Networks. His work at Showtime was nominated for four Emmy Awards and an Oscar, among many other industry accolades. His expertise in digital transformation and marketing has been instrumental in guiding 13D’s online presence and marketing initiatives.

Trevor holds a BA in English with Honors in Creative Writing from Brown University, graduating in 2003. He is based in Brooklyn, New York.

Damaris graduated from Brown University in 2003 with a B.A. in Comparative Literature. In 2013, she earned a Masters in Arts from Columbia Journalism School. She is a recipient of The Pulitzer Traveling Fellowship.
