Investopedia is a privately owned for-profit American website that focuses much of its content on investing education and financial news. Its operations were managed by its CEO, David Siegel starting in 2015.
The company is headquartered in New York City, and was started by Cory Janssen and Cory Wagner in June 1999. In 2007, the site was purchased by U.S. publishing company Forbes, who subsequently sold it to ValueClick in 2010 for $42 million. In November 2013, ValueClick sold its media properties (Investopedia and PriceRunner) to IAC. Goldman Sachs called the IAC acquisition "a bargain" at $80 million.
