Who Are We?

About Us

Port Phillip Publishing is an independent financial publisher based in Melbourne, Australia. We provide independent financial commentary, economic analysis and market forecasts through print and email publications, books and conferences.

We think our investment ideas can help you become financially independent, better-informed and a more successful investor.

You may find our writing unusual at first. That’s because we believe in plain speaking and honest discussion. You won’t find us reporting the news. But you will read exactly what we think matters, why it matters, and what you can do about it.

Unlike many financial firms in Australia, we’re not beholden to advertisers. This leaves us free to criticise and publish our views without fear of upsetting vested interests. We work for our customers, not our advertisers.

Our editorial team will help you make sense of the complex world of geopolitics and high finance – and identify ways you can profit from developments large and small so you can act – and potentially profit – right away and for many years to come.

Our Story

Port Phillip Publishing was established in 2005 as the Australian outpost of US publisher, Agora Inc. Agora was founded over 25 years ago by best-selling author and entrepreneur Bill Bonner, and is one of the world’s most successful publishers of financial, health and travel newsletters.

Since our inception here in Melbourne we have expanded rapidly from around 270 readers of our free emails in 2005 to over 200,000 today. Our subscription services now reach more than 40,000 investors. We’re proud of the role we play in the Australian financial sector and are delighted that we have been able to help our readers protect their wealth and prosper in some of the most turbulent economic conditions in living memory.

Publications

With 18 subscription services and 3 free daily emails our readers get a comprehensive insight into the ideas that the mainstream media frequently neglects – or is too lazy to research. With publications spanning macroeconomics and the effect of ‘big picture’ geopolitics on financial markets; the resource industry and small-cap companies on the ASX200; to providing value and income investment ideas and specific buy and sell trading recommendations; our readers can access wisdom and ideas from some of the most switched-on and unconventional thinkers in the country

Whether you’re a long-term investor looking to develop your strategy and grow your retirement fund; or a short-term trader wanting to take a well-researched punt and make large gains we have something for you.

We can’t promise you that our editors always agree. In fact, sometimes they completely disagree. This can cause confusion with some readers. But our analysts are not paid to say the same thing. They’ve been hired because they believe they have a valuable insight into how investment markets work and how they make money. We don’t decide which view is right. The market does. Our aim is to publish original thinkers and analysts who can help you become a better investor by providing you with ideas you can use in your own investment plan. Ultimately, we believe that no one cares more about your wealth than you.

What our readers say about Port Phillip Publishing and its services

“The share market and the newsletters from Port Phillip Publishing have become a large part of my life giving me something to think about and plan a large part of my day around.” Milto

“Anyone who is interested in making money through share trading would have to be a complete fool not to sign up to D&D [and] Aust Small Cap… My husband subscribes to all your [services] and I must say I really think they are the best investment ever… Several years ago I didn’t know about any of these and share trading was just something I read about.  Now I do this full time and I love it… I have made heaps of money trading all your tips (since 1st July 2010 I have banked over $90,000 profits!) I wouldn’t be so financially successful without all the subscriptions we have with you. So keep doing your stuff guys, I’d be lost without you! (and I’d have to get a real job again, yuch!)” Ann Cox.

“I was forced to really self manage my SMSF from December last year (after my previous ‘advisors’ managed to lose me several $100k’s in the GFC) and have not looked back since subscribing to your services.” George

Your letters rock! I am a recent convert having started subscribing in May this year but have recouped my investment many, many times over with the recommendations in Small Cap and D&D. Thank you for your honest and candid appraisal of how the world really is!” Steve Roney

“I enjoy reading your publications and hope that you may continue to present these stories and opportunities to subscribers” Bob Buckeridge

“I promised myself that I would never pay a broker, because they were as good as liars. I would not trust one as far as I could throw one. You say it the way it is, and I could have just run off [with] the information you put out there. I paid to subscribe because you have made me money from your recommendations. I don’t have a lot of money, but I will always be a subscriber. You need to understand that you make a difference in what you do.” Peter Thomson
