    “Globally (and in India) investors have almost shut their doors to new tech bets, especially for any rounds higher than $30-$50 million… In emerging markets like India, we expect that prices will continue to be low for at least a year… we’d rather let the markets stabilize and winners play out,” said a top tier fund partner based in the United States.

    12 Best Financial Newsletters for Business & Investment News

    12 Best Financial Newsletters for Business & Investment News

    Most of us don’t have time to read The Wall Street Journal cover to cover each morning to stay on top of financial news. And for those looking to learn more about personal finance, the sheer volume of financial podcasts and articles scattered across the Internet raises intimidating questions about where to even begin.

    Fortunately, daily and weekly newsletters can keep you informed without a massive time commitment. You get news, tips, and free education delivered straight to your inbox for a quick read over your coffee.

    Beyond actively checking the best investment news sites, consider these financial newsletters for fast, timely updates.

    • Frequency: Monthly
    • Cost: $199 per year
    • Focus: Stock picks, active investing, and beating the market

    Among the oldest paid stock-picking newsletters, Motley Fool’s Stock Advisor does precisely that: recommend individual stock picks they believe will outperform the market.

    And on average, their picks have done just that since their inception in 2002. And they’d better, given the high subscription cost and low newsletter frequency.

    The monthly newsletter includes two featured picks plus ten “Best Buys Now” they think will outperform the market soon. Previous picks include Netflix, Amazon,, and Marvel before Disney acquired it. They also recommend starter stocks for new investors with minimal money to invest.

    To be clear, the Stock Advisor newsletter is not for passive, buy-and-hold investors. It serves active investors looking for an edge and recommendations to beat the market with timely buy and sell orders. Only consider shelling out the cash if you actually plan to act on their information, though.

    Beyond stock picks, Motley Fool also includes market analysis, trend overviews, and other financial news summaries. Given that the newsletter goes out monthly, it takes a broader perspective than the daily movements and trends reported by daily newsletters.

    • Frequency: Daily
    • Cost: Free
    • Focus: Stock market news and stock picking

    While Zacks’ website undeniably looks like it hasn’t been updated in over a decade, their daily Profit from the Pros newsletter still provides timely tips and analysis.

    Every day, Zacks’ executive vice president, Kevin Matras, pens a brief note outlining his thoughts about financial markets and the economy at large. Zacks specializes in stock research, and the daily newsletter provides context about broader market trends.

    Noteworthy features include their Bull of the Day and Bear of the Day stock picks. As the names suggest, these individual picks break down one company Zack sees rising soon — and one they foresee falling.

    For stock investors, Zacks Profit from the Pros can make a quick source of information each morning.

    • Frequency: Daily (except Sundays)
    • Cost: Free
    • Focus: Business and financial news

    Morning Brew is concise, well curated, and — best of all — delivered with humor and wit.

    Morning Brew goes out six days a week, Monday through Saturday, with an optional Sunday Light Roast edition. At the beginning of each daily newsletter, they start with a summary of the most important financial news along with an at-a-glance chart of the previous day’s stock and financial index performance.

    At the end, there are trivia questions, quizzes, clever GIFs, and one-line links to other interesting stories around the web.

    Note that Morning Brew focuses on business and financial news. If you want more granular personal finance tips and advice, look elsewhere.

    Read our full Morning Brew review if you’re still not convinced, but I highly recommend it for its brevity, light tone, and comprehensive approach to financial news.

    • Frequency: Daily (weekdays only)
    • Cost: Free
    • Focus: Business and financial news

    Following a similar model as Morning Brew, Robinhood Snacks delivers “[t]he 3-minute newsletter with fresh takes on the financial news you need to start your day.” From its light tone to its broad business scope, it occupies the same niche.

    But while Morning Brew only exists as a media company primarily fueled by ad revenue, Robinhood Snacks merely serves as the communication arm of brokerage firm Robinhood, a low-cost commission-free online broker. Robinhood brings the heft of a full investment brokerage with the wit and scrappy attitude of a startup for outstanding financial news summaries.

    • Frequency: Daily (weekdays only)
    • Cost: Free
    • Focus: Business and tech industry news

    With more of a tech slant than competing newsletters, The Hustle serves up the day’s most significant business, financial, and technology stories in “five minutes or less.”

    It’s 100% free, and like many others, it wears its sense of humor on its sleeve. Expect a startup-driven focus aimed particularly at tech professionals. Beyond the typical high-level business news stories, they also sometimes provide more in-depth coverage of tech companies. But anyone can appreciate the down-to-earth approach to business news and tips and the quick, succinct summaries.

    And the (lack of) price tag, of course.

    • Frequency: Daily (weekdays only)
    • Cost: Free
    • Focus: Personal finance, saving money, and travel

    Consumer advocate and personal finance expert Clark Howard built his brand around helping people save money.

    That goes for consumer products, of course, including a separate newsletter specifically for retail and restaurant deals. But Clark also offers a newsletter dedicated to saving money on travel along with his standard daily newsletter and weekly Best of Clark newsletter covering personal finance, budgeting, and investing tips.

    Howard keeps the big picture in mind too, with plenty of tips on retirement planning.

    For free personal finance updates and tips, Clark Howard doesn’t disappoint.

    • Frequency: Daily (weekdays only)
    • Cost: Free
    • Focus: Women’s finance and family issues

    DailyWorth narrows down more to personal and family finance topics, as well as marriage and parenting, rather than the loftier macroeconomic topics covered by Morning Brew and Robinhood Snacks.

    It also delivers a female-centric perspective: DailyWorth is the newsletter arm of women’s financial website HerMoney, created by Jean Chatzky. Beyond being a personal finance blog and newsletter, HerMoney also offers a podcast.

    For women looking for personal finance and family advice written by and for women, DailyWorth makes a reliable daily newsletter.

    • Frequency: Daily (weekdays only)
    • Cost: Free
    • Focus: Business and financial trends and entrepreneurship

    Like Morning Brew and Robinhood Snacks, The Minority Mindset provides a high-level view of business and financial news. And they do so with an upbeat, casual tone.

    Beyond just daily news summaries, The Minority Mindset aims to help you think differently about money. They know how dysfunctionally the average person approaches their finances. They want you to do better.

    I also like that The Minority Mindset ties those macroeconomic news stories back to you and your wallet. With a more practical, hands-on approach, they don’t want you to lose sight of how business and financial trends affect you personally.

    Plus, they include a fun “Mind Break” that ties together pop culture, business trivia, and inspirational stories about bootstrapping entrepreneurs. What’s not to like?

    • Frequency: Daily (weekdays only)
    • Cost: Free
    • Focus: Business and financial trends and personal finance

    Financial planner Jill Schlesinger seems to be everywhere all at once.

    She serves as a correspondent for “CBS This Morning” and regularly appears on “Face the Nation.” Schlesinger maintains a daily financial podcast and a weekly blog. Somehow, she also found the time to write a bestselling personal finance book, “The Dumb Things Smart People Do With Their Money.”

    And of course, she sends out a daily newsletter.

    Schlesinger’s newsletter covers everything from broad money moves to make at each phase of your life to money habits to daily financial news and trends. It takes a well-rounded approach to both economic news and personal finance.

    Plus, you get Schlesinger’s outspoken and often entertainingly blunt perspective on money. She keeps it real.

    • Frequency: Daily (weekdays only)
    • Cost: Free or $59.95 annually
    • Focus: Business and financial news

    The pitch: “Understand today’s financial news within 3 minutes. For free.”

    Finimize takes a similar approach to Morning Brew, with quick financial news summaries delivered with a smile. Finimize sends out two of the day’s top news stories in their free newsletter.

    Finimize also offers longer news analyses, more in-depth daily reporting, recorded audio of their content, premium meetups, and other add-ons if you pay an annual fee. They do offer a seven-day free trial to dip your toe in the water.

    Try the free subscription first, and if you like what you find, you can then try out the premium subscription.

    • Frequency: Weekly
    • Cost: Newsletter is free, but an NYT subscription, which allows you to read as much content on the site as you’re willing to pay for, starts around $1 per week (the free account limits the number of articles you can read)
    • Focus: Personal finance, business and financial news

    Like most of The New York Times, their Your Money section and newsletter require a subscription. Whatever your political slant, no one writes quite like The Times.

    From spending habits and saving money to retirement planning, financial news to investing, The Times’ Your Money section helps increase your financial literacy across the board. Unlike the rest of the website, however, Your Money provides more direct advice and tips and less news.

    You can view a certain number of articles for free each month, with different subscription options depending on the volume of content you want to access.

    • Frequency: Some daily, some sent as news breaks
    • Cost: Free
    • Focus: Business and financial news, personal finance

    MarketWatch Bulletin emails important news clips as they develop throughout the day. The email subject is the headline, and the email itself is simply a link to the online article. That keeps them fast and simple to either delete without opening or open and click through.

    Beyond their on-the-fly bulletin, however, they offer a range of newsletters for personal finance, tech news, mutual funds, and a half-dozen other topics. I enjoy their frank, straightforward prose and explanations with no jargon or forced laughs.

    And as someone who spends far too much of their day in their inbox, I appreciate getting the most urgent news at a glance.

    In today’s world, financial headlines change quickly.

    Entrepreneurs and business managers should subscribe to Morning Brew, Robinhood Snacks, or Minority Mindset. Those less interested in high-level business news and keener on personal finance tips should check out Clark Howard, Jill on Money, or DailyWorth.

    Regardless of where you get your financial news, everyone could stand to be just a little more informed about money. With only five minutes a day and any of these newsletters, you can be.

    Do you subscribe to a daily or weekly newsletter? Which one, and why?
