About Legacy Research Group

From the beginning, independence has been the key to our success. Unlike the mainstream press, we dont make our money from corporate advertisers. And unlike Wall Street, we dont take commissions or fees from the companies we cover in our newsletters.

Instead, we sell ideas, opinions, and recommendations.

Our mission is to provide readers with a broad view of the world. So, we ask questions; we research and test; but we do not claim to have the last word on every issue. We explore ideas with our readers so they can decide for themselves.

That means we dont have a one-size-fits-all approach to finance and investing. Each publisher under the Legacy umbrella has its own unique culture and outlook, just like each of our readers has his or her own personal investing style.

Our Commitment

As an employer committed to equal opportunity and a diverse workforce, all qualified applicants will receive consideration without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, genetics, protected veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state or local laws.
