Welcome, and thank you for visiting us.

I'm Merryn Somerset Webb, editor-in-chief of MoneyWeek – based in London, just across the river from the City.

The important financial stories, and how you can profit from them

Every day, an awful lot is written and spoken about finance and investing. Much of it is incredibly boring, lots more is either meaningless or plain stupid, and most of it is a complete waste of your time.

Our aim is simple: to give you intelligent and enjoyable commentary on the most important financial stories, and tell you how to profit from them.

So how do we do that?

Firstly, by talking to thoughtful people who know their stuff. That means City professionals, fund managers, stockbrokers, industry experts, and the commentators that we respect. We have a wide range of financial professionals who write regularly for us, come to our monthly 'Roundtable' discussions, and who contribute their expertise to the ongoing MoneyWeek debates.

Secondly, by reading a huge amount of financial news and commentary every week. That means all the mainstream sources – press, websites and magazines – and many more specialised ones, such as broker reports, newsletters, newswires, trade journals and so on.

And finally, by writing articles that we would want to read ourselves, which means intelligent, thought-provoking, practical (as in, advice you can make money from) and entertaining, written in normal English.
