Who is The Motley Fool Canada

Our purpose is to make the world smarter, happier, and richer. While other companies may make you smarter, happier, or richer, we aim to do all three by providing outstanding business and investing advice — with a decidedly Foolish bent.

The Motley Fool Canada offers stock market and investing advice, showing people how to take control of their money and make better financial decisions.

What is Does “Motley Fool” Mean?

Our name is in homage to the one character in Shakespearean literature — the court jester — who could speak the truth to the king and queen without having his head lopped off. The Fools of yore entertained the court with humor that instructed as it amused. More importantly, the Fool was never afraid to question conventional wisdom.

As Fools, we’ve found our niche within the financial industry, helping everyday people like you find investment strategies that work for your situation, without fear or jargon. We believe in treating every dollar as an investment in the future you want to create. We believe that investing in great businesses, for the long term, is the most effective path to wealth. We believe in keeping score and being transparent in our investment performance.
