PETITION provides analysis, commentary and curated links about financial markets, distressed investing, restructuring and bankruptcy. We discuss disruption, from the vantage point of the disrupted.
Fortune highlighted us in “The Ultimate Guide to the Best Business Newsletters.” Buzzfeed discussed us here. New York Magazine’s Intelligencer noted us here. The New Yorker acknowledged our popularity here. And Turnarounds & Workouts’ listed us among the“Top Internet Bankruptcy Resources” — three years running.
PETITION makes its thousands of Members smarter about disruptive trends and distressed debt. Our Members/readers — a highly targeted group of investors, lawyers, investment bankers, consultants, C-suiters, board-of-director-types, and others trying to keep up with rapid change and the disruption that comes with it — use our unique news and insights to source investment ideas, identify and pitch new deals, develop business, advise clients, and more. For junior folks, PETITION is an educational tool that is -- in contrast to other dry and technical resources -- actually interesting and fun for them to read. After reading us, you’re friends, colleagues and clients will be like:
