Our mission at The Motley Fool is to help the world invest better. Turns out the world is pretty big and diverse.
As a result, we offer a range of premium investing services to match the needs of a broad range of temperaments and timelines, interests and investing attitudes (investitudes?).
But how do you decide which Motley Fool service (aka, newsletter, though our services provide a whole lot more than that implies) is right for you?
Here’s a chart that helps describe some of our most popular services in our premium universe.
- Net worth. If you have fewer than $100,000 in investible assets, we’d encourage you to become a member of one of our front-end services (the ones at the bottom of the chart). If you have less than $250,000 to invest, we would discourage you from becoming a Motley Fool ONE member. The fact is that no matter how good the advice you receive, if you spend too large a percentage of your investible assets on our services, you’re not going to get the return on investment you need to be successful.
- Volatility. Are you a risk-taker, or does the thought of losing money turn your stomach? We have services designed for all reaches of the risk scale.
- What you get. Our front-end services offer two recommendations each month, along with each team’s Best Buys Now, a handful of Starter Stocks, and tons of other great investing information. You can spend 30 minutes a month reading each issue and deciding if the new picks are right for you, or you can dive in and devote hours a week to your analysis. Stepping up the ladder, our middle rung provides recommendations and also advice on how each pick fits into a well-balanced, successful portfolio. And Motley Fool ONE provides it all, plus further analysis and services.
If you’re unsure where to start, we suggest Stock Advisor, our flagship service with a general approach that will help a broad range of investors — it’s great for the wealthy and those who have $100 a month to invest; for seasoned investors looking for great ideas and newbies looking for a clue; for daredevils and the timid. Here’s a link to start your Stock Advisor membership, available now with a 7-day free trial.
And if you’re still not sure, which is right for you, fear not: all of our services come with full, 30-day guarantees if you join and find it’s not what you need. We want you to be in the investing service that’s right for you.
