Here at Tycoono, when it comes to matters of money and life in general, we believe in transparency and accountability. Day in and day out, we dedicate ourselves to delivering responsible investing ideas, sound financial education, travel tips, lifestyle resources and other helpful and informative content.
Advertising helps support our website and allows us to create thoughtful, well-researched articles that you may enjoy.
With that said, we want to be completely transparent about our advertising relationships.
Investors Communicating with Investors
Part of the Tycoono community is where investors can teach and learn from other investors. Many financial publications do not permit their writers and editors to own stocks. Tycoono not only permits, but also encourages its staff to invest in common stock.
First, we strongly believe the most effective way to create wealth is through the long-term ownership of stocks, as part of an overall wealth building portfolio of passive income strategies. The stock market has compounded 10% average annual returns over the last century. We believe in using the stock market as a savings bank, and we strongly encourage treating money management as a lifelong endeavor. Therefore, it makes sense for our staff to be vested in the stocks they believe in.
Second, we utilize every available medium to teach people of all ages, all income levels, all backgrounds, and all genetic codes about money and its applications in modern life. Therefore, we believe our staff’s involvement in managing their own money is critical to their learning more about the subject and their succeeding in their own lives. And who better to write about investing than those who do it themselves?
Tycoono writes about stocks in both free and paid content. We make stock recommendations in our various premium newsletter services and actually hold some of these shares in our portfolio services. We will disclose our recommendation or ownership until we cease to recommend the stock, or we sell our entire position. Of course, in both free and paid content we will continue to disclose whether the author has an interest in the stocks mentioned.
- When a writer writes about a stock that he or she has a position or beneficial interest in, that fact is disclosed at the end of the article.
- Affiliates of Tycoono provide individualized investment advice and investment products. These companies may recommend or hold securities mentioned in our publications. Editorial personnel have no knowledge of any affiliates’ holdings and/or specific recommendations, and the affiliates’ personnel have no knowledge of any editorial content before it is published. Our affiliate companies may also have their own disclosure policies, which they may make available on their respective sites.
Business and Technology Partners
We have business relationships with an ever-changing assortment of companies, including technology vendors, leasing companies, data providers, banks, distribution channels, advertisers, landlords, accountants, etc. Many of these companies are public companies operating in industries that we follow. There may be instances in which one of our newsletters recommends a company with whom we have a business relationship, or we may write an article about such a company on Tycoono.com. These occurrences are unintentional and coincidental, as the business end of Tycoono has no input or influence on the editorial side of things.
The following list of business partners is subject to change. We’ll update it periodically, on an as-needed basis.
As a general rule, if you see ads from a company on our site and emails, that company is paying us for such placement. Some of the major ones include PersonalCapital, E*Trade, Fidelity, Scottrade, OptionsHouse, and ShareBuilder. Additionally, companies pay us for inclusion in specific areas of our site (e.g., Registration Page, Links, Banners, Landing Pages, Account). This is a partial list and does not represent the entire universe of companies who advertise with us that and provide us with some form of compensation.
Credit Card and Bank Deposit Advertisers
We partner with credit card issuers and banks to provide relevant products, services, and offers aimed at helping individuals improve their financial lives. We do receive compensation from these partners. This compensation may even impact how products offers are displayed on this site. But trust that independence and transparency are what matters most, regardless of compensation. Our mission is to be a devoted finance advocate and to cut through the noise.
We may issue recommendations for preferred partners that we believe in and/or use ourselves. But keep in mind, this site may not include all available offers from our partners. For example, there are thousands of credit cards available. We’ll highlight a fraction of them. All picks are made at the editorial discretion of The Tycoono editorial team.
We also work diligently to keep information accurate and up to date. This information may differ from partner sites on occasion.
The following credit card issuers and banks provide us compensation:
Credit card issuers:
- Bank of America
- Capital One
- Discover Credit Cards
- Discover Bank
- CIT Bank
We have designed our disclosure and trading guidelines to serve our community, our customers, and our employees fairly. As always, though, you should remember to consider every piece of investment information you receive, here at Tycoono or elsewhere, not as a de facto recommendation, but as an idea for further consideration. Even the strongest disclosure policy in the world does not excuse individuals from taking responsibility for their own decisions. Due diligence, critical thought, and logical use of your brain are crucial to your financial success.
