Agora Financial moved its publications headquarters to the community of Mount Vernon which is designated as a National Historic Landmark District and home to many artists, writers, authors and creative performing arts scholars.
In 1999, Agora Financial published its first ever e-newsletter. The publication became the catalyst for the company to become the architect of the investment information that has now become nationally known. Agora Financial took a need within the investment industry for educating, researching and scrutinizing the data, and turned it into a convenient opportunity for investors.Agora Financial assembled the best, and the most-informed investors, such as former investment bankers and former hedge fund managers, and aligned their expertise with an innovative publication methodology that has been successful for one million readers.
The company sends publications to subscribed investors through the internet as well as direct-mail.
