These are our core values:

  • We are bold

  • We foster trust by operating with integrity

Ethics Policy

We believe that our reputation as a publisher is our most valuable asset, so it is vital that our journalism and featured content is always of the highest quality.

We believe that anyone consuming our media should have confidence that their news is from a credible and reliable source.

Every journalist and contributor working for Sophisticated Investor must understand the legal and regulatory framework in which we operate and our own in-house guidelines and practices.

We know that social media plays an increasingly important role in our daily working lives and it is important that we apply the same standards to all of our content on whichever platform we share it.

To support these principles we have published clear editorial guidelines here.

Diversity

Sophisticated Investor is committed to authentically representing every one of the millions of users that consume our content every day, whatever their color or background. We keep a record of the gender and diversity of contributors and our ambition is to be the industry leader for Global Wealth information.
