Join us on Wednesday, January 20, 2020 at 9:00am for a Virtual Leadership Series event with special guest David Gardner, Co-Founder and Chief Rule Breaker at The Motley Fool, a financial services company he started in 1993 alongside his brother, Tom.
In Shakespeare, the court jester—or Fool—was the one person who had license to speak the truth to the king or queen. In the same way, The Motley Fool has been speaking truth to Wall Street for 26 years, empowering millions of people to take control of their financial lives. The company’s purpose is To Make the World Smarter, Happier, and Richer.
As Chief Rule Breaker, David wears many hats including investor, podcaster, author, and lecturer. David has developed his own style of investing, called Rule Breaker Investing, which seeks to invest ahead of the crowd in the most innovative companies of our time and continue to hold shares well after the crowd has sold. Millions of people and dollars invest alongside David following his stock recommendations made in the company’s flagship service Motley Fool Stock Advisor where he has bought and held stocks like Amazon and Netflix, each up more than 100 times in value (and counting). In October 2018, David celebrated making his 200th consecutive monthly stock pick for Motley Fool Stock Advisor; those 200 picks returned an average annualized return of 20.7% over those 16+ years, vs. the market’s S&P 500 average of 7.5%.
Part of The Motley Fool’s mission to make the world smarter, happier, and richer involves a focus on improving the world’s workplaces. With its unyielding focus on workplace culture and employee engagement, The Motley Fool has twice been named Glassdoor’s #1 Best Medium-Sized Company to Work For in America.
