The thing is we are pretty awesome and humble. We are all about loving our jobs, helping people invest, and doing things our way.
We’ve been rocking Foolishness since being founded in 1993 by brothers David and Tom Gardner. We get a lot of recognition for having a great culture, and people tend to join the Fool for life. Like any great company, our culture starts with the Gardner brothers, who are two of the best people you will meet in life. If you haven’t stopped by our office to say hi, you totally should! We offer public tours on the first Friday of every month, so register here!
The company’s name was taken from Shakespeare, whose wise fools both instructed and amused, and could speak the truth to the king — without getting their heads lopped off. Our culture is as irreverent as our name. We truly love each other, our company, and our members.
