-Created for women by women LJ Investment Research is your online research powerhouse.
The world of stocks, bonds, funds – investing in general – is ever changing with today’s global economy and it’s vital for all investors to have access to every available news source. News and current events which affect how we invest and spend our money change minute to minute and that is hard to keep track of when you are in school, manage a company, run a household, focused on your career or many of the things we juggle every day as women today.
Each day we make decisions which affect our finances – where to buy groceries, making travel plans, retirement plans, how to pay our bills and how to invest our money.
That is why LJ Investment Research was developed… to be your online research center for all the news needed to PREPARE you – women – for anything that may come your way – investments, lifestyle and most importantly your increasing wealth for a secure future.
Here at LJ Investment Research we bring you the latest, most relevant updates 24 hours a day from globally recognized sources.
Our goal is make you into the most successful investor-financial decision maker you can be, regardless of the market environment. And with this knowledge at your fingertips, making decisions about your financial future can be made with confidence.
Our team, made up of a group of women facing different paths, make up LJ Investment Research and bring to you each day a personal piece of them.
Lourdes Janzen, Founder
After spending five years in the military, Lourdes Janzen started a career in Public Relations and Sales and Marketing. With more than 15 years’ experience marketing within the hospitality, health and financial industries, Lourdes Janzen started a family and decided to start consulting in order to become more available for her family.
As a mother, small business owner and wife, every day decisions needed to be made which affected her family. As many women experience, on many days she did not have the time to do all the research with the due diligence she felt was needed… LJ Investment Research was created for this reason.
“I am not your financial advisor, I am not your personal financial planner, but I am your researcher. I am a woman just like yourself and know it takes a lot of time each day to find all the resources you need in order to make sound financial decisions. That is why I developed LJ Investment Research. I wanted to create one powerhouse source where all women on any track in life can find the information they need, to grow and develop their financial independence and secure their future.” – Lourdes

New to the world of investing, Mary will chronicle her personal experiences on how she has had to rebuild her life as a single mother, trying to make her career grow during the world’s economic struggles and still save for herself and son’s future.

Women need to be financially prepared no matter what stage in life you are in and I believe LJ Investment Research is that stepping stone to helping women do so.” – Mary
