Our Business Model

Most networks are driven by advertising revenue, but that is not our model - we are driven by the following metrics:

Trade Lift

Current TDA customers trade more frequently due to the insights and data they take away from our programming.

Increased Asset Value

Our current TDA customers move more funds into their TD Ameritrade accounts because of their increased brand loyalty and knowledge they receive from our programing.


New Customers

Attracting new customers who open a TD Ameritrade account due to exposure to our channel.


Although advertising revenue has not been a factor in our business model, many top brands want to advertise on our channel due to the well-educated, affluent customer base we have.
