InvestOpen is a personal finance blog on making money, business & investing where people from across the globe can learn investing and discuss investment opportunities. The project started in 2012 as a personal finance blog, which had been relaunched in 2018 as investment forum. In December 2020 the forum was acquired by Michael Hebenstreit, an investment professional with over 22 years of experience in equity trading and investing.

After the acquisition, the investment forum was transformed into a finance blog with helpful and beginner-friendly content. In August 2021 Michael partnered with Richard Bowman, an analyst and investor based in Cape Town, South Africa. Richard has over 18 years’ experience in asset management, financial media and systematic trading. Together, they want to make InvestOpen a go-to resource for financial education and help people build financial literacy.
