Who We Are

Manifest Investing is a web-based investing system including research and features/tools for stock and fund screening as well as resources for portfolio design and management.  The community and content stream generates a continuous flow of actionable ideas.  We seek and deliver “elegant simplicity” by focusing on a small number of factors and characteristics that really matter.  Features and regular webcasts feature demonstrations of analysis and methods. Our focus is on demystifying investing — particularly when it comes to the design and management of a portfolio — enabling anyone to experience successful investing with their personal investing or retirement plans. We endorse and encourage investment clubs as vehicles for support and group learning.
