    Proactiveinvestors is now one of the fastest growing global financial media organisations in the world receiving more than one million visitors per month, with investor forums in London, Manchester, New York, Toronto and Sydney held on a regular basis.
    The company produces news and in-depth analysis on thousands of listed companies across the world each year in English, German, Simple and Traditional Mandarin.
