Why Trust Us

BrokerNotes was founded in 2014 with a simple idea: let’s make it easier to find an online broker.

Over the years, that straightforward goal evolved into a mission; to make the world of investing easier to understand and to simplify the process of finding, comparing, and choosing reputable online brokers.

Since those early days, we’ve conducted thousands of hours of research, harvested and validated thousands of data points, crafted tens of thousands of words, and developed powerful tools and proprietary algorithms to help you find a reliable broker that will keep your money safe.


At BrokerNotes we pride ourselves on being unbiased; our editorial decisions are always objective and impartial. Our business model keeps any and all marketing efforts – including our affiliate partnerships – completely separate from our editorial process. This includes our research, testing, evaluations, and editorial content decisions.

We don’t highlight (or ignore) any specific services or products to make more money, or to gain or maintain paid partnerships. Ever.

If you want to know more, we’re happy to talk about How We Make Money.


There’s a reason our coverage is so well-respected in the industry. Our expert team of writers, researchers, content strategists, data analysts, editors, traders, and investors has decades of industry experience.

Our approach is always driven by insightful data collection, careful research, and our proprietary testing methods.

We regularly audit and validate our own data, and we continue to add more data points and testing variables to ensure that our information remains accurate and up to date.

As on our sister sites, StockBrokers.com and ForexBrokers.com, our rigorous data validation process yields an error rate of less than 1% each year.
