Seeking Alpha was founded in 2004 by David Jackson. The company is a crowd-sourced content service for the financial markets.
The company publishes articles and research that covers a broad range of stocks, asset classes, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), and investment strategies.
Unlike other equity research platforms, insight is provided by contributors including a base of investors and industry experts on the buy side rather than those on the sell-side.
As of January 2021, the company states that it has 10 million registered users and more than 17 million unique visitors each month.
The site provides articles from independent contributors, rather than staff.
As of January 2021, the company reported that it has over 16,000 contributors who publish over 7,000 articles and transcripts each month and that it covers 8,000 ticker symbols and has an archive of over 1 million articles.
The company boasts that most investors receive better returns by taking the advice in articles posted in Seeking Alpha than using conventional wisdom or sources.
Seeking Alpha maintains a corporate office in New York, New York.
