Corporate Information

Thirty-five years ago InvestorPlace Media (fka Phillips Investment Resources) began as an investment newsletter publisher looking for self-directed individual investors. Our goal was to connect world-class investment advice with investors who wanted great leadership and direction. Our mission is to help those same investors reach their financial dreams. We are proud to say that our goal and mission is still the same today.

Some things, though, have changed. We started off with just a few advisory services. Our servicesnow range from investing in value stocks and mutual funds to growth stocks, options and international portfolios. And, we have grown from a print publisher to a multimedia business where you can watch, listen and read what our experts have to say.

InvestorPlace Media is now privately owned by Avista Capital Partners. Our offices are in Rockville, Md., just outside Washington, D.C.

    Pros

    I've been here about six months, and honestly it's as if the old reviews on this site are talking about a totally different company than the one I work for. I know the company went through some rough patches a few years back, so I assume that's what led to some of the negative reviews. During my time with the company, things have been very good. The business is looking up, the company provides good training and good stability, and it's really a good place to work. The hours are very manageable. I'd recommend it to friends (in fact, I have).

    Cons

    It's best if you have some interest in financial markets, which isn't for everyone. And because it's a small company, roles change with some frequency--some people view that as providing good opportunity, others really dislike it.
