Markets & Money is unlike any other investment newsletter you’ve read before. By subscribing, you’ll tap into a worldwide network of analysts writing about the financial world in an eye opening way. All of them working to deliver you unique, and useful investment ideas you can put to work in your own financial plan.

Our mission is very different to that of the mainstream financial press. We look at the investment and financial world in a sceptical and contrarian way. And tell you honestly what we see, even if it isn’t always popular.

How can this approach help you as an investor? Well, the world isn’t always what it seems. We look beyond the obvious explanations and tell you what we really think is moving the market — and more importantly, we look ahead to the big opportunities and risks you might not be aware of. I can’t promise we’ll always get it right. But I can promise you that by subscribing, you’ll find thought provoking, well researched and hopefully entertaining ideas delivered to your inbox six days a week.
