Tom Feeney began his work in the investment industry in 1969. Clients have included cities, states and major corporations, as well as numerous religious, charitable and other not-for-profit organizations.
In his early career Tom served as Executive Director of Stewardship Services, Inc., Washington, D.C., and as a Senior Vice President of Atalanta/Sosnoff Capital Corporation, New York. He established Thomas J. Feeney & Co., a financial consultant to tax-exempt organizations, in 1978. Feeney & Co. initiated investment management services in late 1985, and Marathon Asset Management Co., Mission’s predecessor, was incorporated in early 1987 to separate those investment management services from Feeney & Co.’s consulting work. Tom served as Marathon’s Chief Investment Officer since the firm’s inception. In 1997 Tom assumed the roles of Managing Director and Chief Investment Officer of Mission Management & Trust Co., located in Tucson, Arizona.
Prior to his investment career, Tom served on the faculties of the University of Santa Clara, St. Joseph’s College and Guadalupe College, all in California. In more recent years, he has lectured on investments at the University of Notre Dame and Georgetown University. His own academic background includes a B.A. in economics from Boston College, an M.B.A. from the University of Santa Clara, studies at the Stanford Law School and additional post-graduate work at the University of San Francisco.
Over the years Tom has been interviewed on CNBC and frequently on local business TV shows. Similarly he has been interviewed and written about by such national publications as The Wall Street Journal, Barron’s and Investor's Business Daily as well as local papers throughout the country.
Away from his desk, Tom enjoys his all too infrequent time on the golf course. In earlier years he ran two dozen marathons or ultra-marathons including the Boston Marathon and the New York City Marathon three times each. The highlight of his competitive career was winning a relatively small field marathon in Carpinteria, California.

We're in the midst of the greatest investing boom in almost 60 years. And rest assured - this boom is not about to end anytime soon.
You see, the flattening of the world continues to spawn new markets worth trillions of dollars; new customers that measure in the billions; an insatiable global demand for basic resources that's growing exponentially ; and a technological revolution even in the most distant markets on the planet.
And Money Morning is here to help investors profit handsomely on this seismic shift in the global economy. In fact, we believe this is where the only real fortunes will be made in the months and years to come.
The bottom line is this: With U.S. influence slipping, and the dollar declining as well, investors who think too narrowly about this transformation will face years of meager returns. But those who embrace this new global reality can make themselves very wealthy.

Agora Inc. was named in the suit by the SEC and was exonerated by the court, and thus dropped from the case. Stansberry & Associates was found civilly liable for a matter that dealt with one writer’s report on a company. The action was not a criminal matter. The case is still on appeal, and no final decision has been made.
