How does investor.com make money?

One of the most common questions we receive is around revenue generation. How can investor.com sustain itself if it refuses to sell ad banners, refuses to collect and sell user data, and refuses to accept payments for generating leads?

That’s a great question.

As a consumer advocacy project, registered investment advisory (RIA) firms and individual advisors can pay a nominal annual fee of $999 or $185, respectively, to support the investor.com project and verify their investor.com profile. IMPORTANT: Verified profiles DO NOT impact Trust Score.

With this model in place, the only way investor.com succeeds is if Americans spread the word and the financial planning industry invests in our North Star vision of a fiduciary-first America.

Join us in supporting the investor.com mission.
