People are our most important assets. Many of us are avid investors—that helps us see things from our clients‘ angle and develop products they really need. It started with an idea—one great idea from a 27-year-old stock analyst. Joe Mansueto thought it was unfair that people didn’t have access to the same information as financial professionals. So he hired a few people and set up shop in his apartment—to deliver investment research to everyone. We didn’t know then what the company would look like today, but we knew the commitment to our mission—to help people reach their financial goals—wouldn’t change. We’ve made the world better for investors, and we’re continuing to look for new ways to help people achieve financial security. We build products and offer services that connect people to the investing information and tools they need. We put in extra work to improve what we do—and we’re always looking for new ideas to help investors.
