About Financial Standard

The Financial Standard is the publishing division of Rainmaker Group focused on providing trade news, investment analysis and education for superannuation trustees, financial planners, researchers, consultants, investment managers, and professional investors.

In an evolving and complex marketplace, the Financial Standard is a uniquely open forum for the delivery and exchange of information and ideas.

The Financial Standard's investment analysis is its key point of differentiation from any other publication available on the market today. Investment Analysis is generated internally by our intelligence unit and through liaison with leading investment practitioners.

It's Balanced

The Financial Standard Newspaper goes beyond the headlines to address the real issues for today's investment professionals.

The Financial Standard provides the full picture and will help decision makers by providing:

  • Innovative analysis
  • Independent objective assessments
  • Clarity of thinking
  • An easy to use format
  • Broad industry coverage
  • A single reference point
  • Reliability
  • An open forum

It provides new information that is currently not available in the form of Innovative analysis including:

  • Conventional performance tables
  • Performance attribution analysis

It's a Valuable Reference

The Financial Standard Newspaper offers a range of innovative coverage that cannot be found elsewhere. For the first time, one publication brings together all the information needed to be informed in one place.
