StockBrokers.com was created in June 2009 initially under the domain TradeWiser.com. Founders Blain and Brandon Reinkensmeyer set out with one goal: to provide unbiased reviews and ratings for online brokers and help investors find the best broker for their needs.
In early 2011, the domain StockBrokers.com was acquired and the site was moved and re-branded. Also that Spring, Blain published the first annual online broker review and the team launched a variety of new tools for comparing brokers online.
Today, StockBrokers.com continues its mission of unbiased reviews and ratings of online brokers. The annual review is respected as the toughest in the industry (view media coverage), incorporating over 295 variables across ten core categories. Through the annual review, tools, and over 30,000 words of research on site, StockBrokers.com has helped tens of thousands of investors open a new brokerage account.
StockBrokers.com’s parent company, Reink Media Group, specializes in development and management of web assets in the finance space. Reink Media also operates StockTrader.com and InvestingTeacher.com, alongside several other sites.
