The Origins and History of the Hannaian Investment & Publishing Group (HIPG) began in the late 1980's out of a need for innovative distribution of the products of the clientele of the Intellectual Property, and Music & Entertainment Law Practice of Attorney Harlington L. Hanna Jr., in the Historic Music Region in Memphis Tennessee. At the time Dr. Hanna was also a professor of Neuro and Pediatric Optometry at the Southern College of Optometry located within the University of Tennessee Medical Center District in Memphis, and a businessman operating H&H Productions USA, a Music Publishing Company and a Music Recording Studio.

Distribution of the music and records produced by the legal, music recording, & publishing clients required an innovative method for the relatively small operation to successfully compete with the major music distribution companies. 

Dr. Hanna developed a cooperative distribution system where the clients in one part of the country would assist clients from another region to mutually market and sell their products in each others region of influence, and share the profits based on an agreed upon matrix of profit sharing.

The system worked well except for the sharing of the Intellectual Property & Publishing Rights in the music which presented a more difficult profit sharing matrix than the sale of the physical recordings. At some point he realized that the matrix for sharing in the profits of intellectual properties could be better accomplished through the purchasing of shares of stocks and securities of publicly traded intellectual Property rich companies listed on the Stock Markets. The established, and SEC governed trading in such securities provided a facilitated method of benefitting from owning and producing Intellectual Properties such as copyrights, patents and Industrial Secrets. The legal and music clients then became the first group of investors of what developed into the Hannaian Investment & Publishing Group.

The Name "Hannaian" was developed and trademarked by the Hanna Family to recognize and honor Dr Hanna's brother Ian Frederick Hanna a talented aspiring musician and scholar who had recently passed. The name pronounced Hanna-Ian has since been used to recognize several Family Business operations, including The Hannaian USA Corp, the parent company of The Hannaian Investment & Publishing Group (HIPG).

The Hannaian Investment Group (HIPG) became a formally organized entity in the early 1990's and began to have Internet Based operations in the late 1990's, and Investment Retreats and Conferences soon afterwards. The Group began to focus on its socially responsible goal & objective of encouraging and training those from underrepresented communities in the business of investing and business development.

Later in the mid 2000's in order to accommodate the growing need for Internet Based Investment & Business Development, it developed and implemented the concept of an Internet Based Platform called the National Market Exchange (NMEX). NMEX is a powerful Community Based Portal & Platform located at http://www.nationlmex.com. The NMEX Platform now houses numerous business and entrepreneurial operations including HIPG's own Internet operations, Investorgenes.com the Group's Website, Tradergenes.com HIPG's Operational Center, Marketgenes.com The Hannaian Affiliate Marketing Group (HAMG) Operational Center, and uptownwallstreet.com HIPG's Retreat & Conference Website.

HIPG has become known for its success in Investing & Investment Education. HIPG is unique in its history, purpose, and function in the United States. The Group and its members do not pool or otherwise utilize collective funds to invest as a group, nor does HIPG recommend or require Members to invest in any particular investments. The Group's philosophy is to encourage Self Directed and Controlled Investing (SDCI) on an individual basis, it does not operate as an Investment Fund. The Members serve primarily as researchers of potentially profitable investments which they share with other Members. They share the information by publishing their research in various proprietary online publishing outlets specially designed for use by the Members. Members can then utilize the published research to further their individual investment efforts, goals, and objectives.

The value of this cooperative research and reporting by a large group of investors who have been well trained in the same unique and proprietary system of research, investing, trading, and reporting is ultimately immeasurable to the investing success of the individual Members.

The Group schedules Investment Training Retreats where members can interact and share their Investment ideas and practices. Pictures of some of the historical meetings of the Group can be viewed online at http://hannaian.com/retreat/main.htmlHIPG also administers The Hannaian Awards.
