The Benzinga Story
With the collapse of Lehman Brothers and the financial crisis that followed, entire classes of market participants were wiped out. From the rubble of the downturn, a new kind of investor emerged.
Benzinga empowers the individual investor by keeping them one step ahead. No longer does one have to rely on one firm or one analyst and pay large broker fees. Benzinga gives access to all that is available. Instead of giving financial advice, Benzinga gives you the news to make informed decisions to take control of your own financial future.
This new investor is nimble, intelligent and creative. Dissatisfied with the dinosaurs of financial media, they craved a different, more engaging source of information.
They needed a place that combined real-time news with actionable trading ideas, a place that brought the insight of the biggest names and the brightest minds from across the country directly to their computer screens.
They needed a place that rolled all of this information into one financial media outlet.
Against the backdrop of this revolution in financial journalism, Benzinga was born.
