About Us

Welcome to InvestorPlace

Our goal is to connect world-class investment advice with investors who want great leadership and direction.

A Personal Letter from Our CEO

Brian Hunt, Chief Executive Officer

For more than 40 years, InvestorPlace has been delivering useful, interesting — and most importantly ACTIONABLE — insights and recommendations focused on getting our readers to the biggest investment opportunities FIRST.

Started by a business visionary named Tom Phillips, we publish detailed research and recommendations for self-directed investors, financial advisors and money managers.

But we’re not like a lot of financial firms. InvestorPlace does not accept money from the companies we cover. We don’t accept banking fees. We simply publish our ideas with the aim of enriching and educating investors. If we do our jobs well, our customers stick around. It’s a simple, transparent business model investors have loved since the 1970s.

I believe InvestorPlace has been in business for so long — and serves so many wealthy customers around the world — because of one simple reason: Results.

An Unmatched Track Record of Serving Investors

You see, I don’t know of another financial research firm with our incredible track record of getting “big calls” right.

Mid 1980s

In the mid-1980s, our analysts forecasted the personal computer boom and helped investors make big gains in computer stocks.

Early 1990s

Our analysts recommended Internet stocks in the early 1990s... years before they become "hot."

1980s & 1990s

We forecasted the historic bull market of the 1980s and 1990s.


Our analysts warned investors that tech stocks were becoming dangerous in 2000… and shorted many of them, helping readers make big gains as they collapsed.


Our analysts urged investors to buy gold in 2002, right before it soared more than 500%.


We urged people to buy Apple when it traded for the equivalent of $4 per share… We urged people to buy Amazon before it soared over 2,000%... and we recommended Google stock way back in 2004, before it became the world dominating stock it is today.


One of our analysts forecasted the 2008 mortgage meltdown and the bankruptcy of mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.


We urged people to load up on cheap stocks in 2009, right before they soared hundreds of percent.

Since 1970s - Now

Our work has been featured in publications such as Barron’s, Time, and the Wall Street Journal. Our analysts have made over 1,000 appearances in outlets like Bloomberg, CNN, and CNBC. We’ve even appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America.

I could go on and on and on…

I point out these things not to boast… but to show you how we’ve helped our customers grow wealthy and that our independent research can help you, too.

How We Hope to Earn Your Business

Our goal is to alert you to massive business trends like the Internet in the early 1990s and personal computers in the 1980s. We’ll alert you to big dangers like we did with tech stocks in the 2000s… and the housing market in 2007. We’ll show you how to build wealth with the world’s best mutual funds.

And when there’s an opportunity to make big, fast gains in rapidly developing booms like Bitcoin and legal marijuana, we’ll make sure you’re informed — just like we did with both of these sectors YEARS before they went “mainstream.”

Wall Street won’t tell you this, but by the time the general public hears about a major investment trend, the big money has already been made… by those who got there FIRST.

As an InvestorPlace reader, you’ll hear all about the next trends poised to change the world and hand investors huge gains. Most importantly, you’ll get specific and actionable recommendations for taking advantage of them.

Even better, you’ll be the first one in your neighborhood… the first one in your company… among the first people in the world to know about them.

That’s our promise to you.

In addition to money-making opportunities, we’ll also help you protect against financial shocks and bear markets. We’ll show you how to rig your financial sails for “all weather” — and help you create a crisis-proof and inflation-proof portfolio that safely and surely grows your wealth in ANY kind of market.

We aim to show you what’s around the corners of the business and investment world… we’ll help you connect the dots and know what’s really happening behind mainstream headlines.

It’s by following these mandates that we count so many hedge fund managers, financial advisors, and wealthy individuals as long-standing clients.
