420 Funders by Alan Brochstein

As the emerging trend of marijuana legalization sweeps across the global economy, the industry offers investors unprecedented growth potential. (As with any opportunity to earn profits, there is always the risk of loss. Information is critical to making better investment decisions.)

Public opinion towards marijuana regulation is reaching a tipping point, where recreational and medicinal usage is increasingly accepted. 

With no stalwart incumbents, the sector is just at the beginning of what could be a meteoric surge in demand for legal cannabis.

The nascent industry will likely grow from its extremely fragmented state to one that will become more consolidated, with many new entrants and larger companies that will build operations and buy their way in.

The brainchild of Alan Brochstein (420 Investor), 420 Funders is an online community for sophisticated investors seeking to capitalize on cannabis.

At 420 Funders, investors join executives from privately held marijuana companies to gather the most important information and insights.

As a subscriber you will enjoy:

  • Actionable information on privately held marijuana companies
  • An exclusive forum for company executives and sophisticated investors to discuss information, ideas, and insights
  • Access to send secure private messages to any other member of the community

420 Funders is designed to serve sophisticated investors.

About the Maven

Alan Brochstein

Before I became the leading “Cannabis Financial Analyst” in the marijuana industry, I spent numerous years on the inside of the investment industry as a portfolio manager.

Prior to earning my CFA charter in 1997, I worked in NYC for Kidder, Peabody, & Co. in bonds from 1986 to 1992. Later in 1992, I joined First Boston’s investment management subsidiary before becoming a portfolio manager with Criterion Investment Management in 1994 —co-managing $10 billion in fixed-income investments. In 2000, I made the move to stocks, joining a small firm in Houston as an analyst and portfolio manager. I remained at the firm until 2006, when I left to form my own business, AB Analytical Services—working as a research consultant for several investment advisors.

In 2008, I began offering a model portfolio service to individual investors ( And in 2009, I had the pleasure of working with an independent research firm that focused on evaluating the management teams of publicly-traded companies. I created The Analytical Trader in 2013—a service focused on providing swing trading ideas which offered a 4:1 reward/risk ratio over a two-week timeframe.

After seeing a strong need for more investor transparency among cannabis companies in early 2014, I launched the 420 Investor— a service committed to providing real-time, objective information about the top marijuana companies in the market.

In the process of launching the 420 Investor, I became a much-needed ally to marijuana investors, being hailed as one of the top “Cannabis Financial Analysts” in the industry.

My philosophy is simple: I believe that when people have access to ideas based on sound processes and backed by decades of experience, they can manage their own money and still have a market-beating performance. It’s my goal to provide exactly this type of know-how to investors everywhere.
