About StockBrokers.com

Originally established in 2009 under the domain TradeWiser.com, founders Blain and Brandon Reinkensmeyer had realized the web was littered with poor quality reviews that were biased in their rankings and shallow in depth. Their goal was simple: conduct thorough and completely unbiased reviews to help individual investors find the best broker for their needs.

In January 2011, the domain StockBrokers.com was acquired. With the sale finalized on February 2nd, 2011, the TradeWiser.com website was moved and rebranded under the new StockBrokers.com name.  Later that month, the first annual online broker review was published.

In 2016, StockBrokers.com’s parent company, Michigan based Reink Media Group, began an expansion internationally. First, it acquired the domain ForexBrokers.com and launched the site in December 2016 as an unbiased resource for forex broker reviews. Then, in February and March 2017, the first annual robo-advisor review alongside the first annual UK Share Dealing Broker Review, respectively, were published.

Today, the primary StockBrokers.com annual review is respected as the most comprehensive review in the industry. Over 300 variables are assessed each year and the site is home to the largest independently verified database on the web, housing more than 5000 data points. Thanks to its focus on unbiased research, StockBrokers.com is frequently referenced in the media.

Through the annual review, comparison tool, best broker recommendations, and over 50,000 words of research, StockBrokers.com has helped over three million investors compare brokers since 2011.
