Thanks for your interest in Motley Fool Funds. You may have heard of The Motley Fool’s co-founders, David and Tom Gardner, and how they started The Motley Fool in the early days of the Internet. The Gardners introduced a new approach to investing with their jester caps and irreverent tone, but they had a serious goal: To bring together as many individual investors as possible and leverage that shared knowledge to get a leg up on Wall Street. Then something strange happened: Tom and David began hearing from folks who liked The Motley Fool message, but who didn’t have the time or energy to manage their own money… In fact, a Foolish mutual fund was our customers’ number-one request.
In 2009, when Motley Fool Funds set out to answer that request, we didn’t just slap our name on a run-of-the-mill fund. We built Motley Fool Funds ourselves, taking care that our interests were truly aligned with those of our shareholders. We instituted a pay-for-performance model, cut loads and 12b-1 fees, and invested our own money in the funds. What’s more, our funds have very low turnover, reducing taxes and trading friction for shareholders.
The response has been incredible. Just two years in, we’re closing in on $300 million AUM. And this past spring, Institutional Investor named our chief investment officer and portfolio manager Bill Mann a “Rising Star,” citing Motley Fool Funds’ asset growth, performance, and investing style.
