This Company Is Revolutionizing The Financial Media And How We Rank 'Experts'

Built as a response to the plethora of financial advice on the Internet, TipRanks is one of the contestants in this year’s Benzinga Fintech Awards.

Benzinga recently interviewed Uri Gruenbaum, the company's CEO and co-founder, about how TipRanks functions and what makes it unique.

What Was The Spark?

“TipRanks was founded two and a half years ago. The reason I founded it is actually pretty simple: I followed bad advice that I came across online that made me lose some money.

“My wife asked me: 'why did you take that specific investment?' and I told her that some financial expert that seems to know a lot recommended to invest in that stock. [This experience] made me think that there is no way to evaluate advice we are picking online, ” Gruenbaum said.

How Has TipRanks Developed Over Time?

On the growth Gruenbaum's company has seen since inception: “When we started the company, we actually didn’t want to create a website where we can do the research.

"We focused on a browser add-on, which is given away for free, and we wanted to market under the theme of a financial safeguard.”
