Rate of Return

Curated financial news, analysis, and commentary to attack the investing day.



Rate of Return is a publication where anyone can find curated financial news, analysis and commentary to attack the investing day.

I’m Austin Hankwitz - I create personal finance and investing content empowering everyone to become an educated investor.

You might have seen me on Bloomberg, CNBC, Business Insider, or The New York Times.

Rate of Return has become a 2021 Substack Featured Publication - speaking volumes toward our publication’s quality, consistency, and value-add. In efforts to continue this trend of “adding value,” we launched the Rate of Return Podcast.
