Tom and David Gardner, along with some other incredible Fools, talk about our approach to teaching our members about investing. Get to know our founders and our office in this video. Did you know that most Fools are individual investors who follow The Fool’s own advice?
Finance and financial management companies are some of the least consumer-friendly businesses. We hate that, and for nearly twenty years, we’ve been trying to educate people about when and where the companies that serve their financial needs are not aligned with their best interests — shining a light on the anti-consumer business practices of commission-based brokers, mutual funds with loads and hidden fees, and exorbitant interest rates on credit (to name just a few).
Still, too many people are underserved and overcharged by financial professionals.
While most of our efforts are focused on helping people to avoid Wall Street pitfalls, today we are announcing that we have partnered with PenFed to offer three unique credit cards that we think deserve to be in your wallet, which is something we can’t say about most of the credit cards out there.

Last week, The Fool held a company-wide financial health day. Fools had the opportunity to attend classes on subjects like retirement planning and negotiating, and could meet one-on-one with our in-house financial planner, Robert Brokamp.
Robert blogs for Get Rich Slowly, and wrote a post about how your company can encourage employees to take a day to iron out their finances (or how you can set aside a day for this on your own). Check it out here!
By setting aside just a few hours to set up automatic payments, plan for emergencies, create a budget, and start saving for retirement, you can rest easy knowing your finances are taken care of!
