    Post Trusty Steed

    I am getting my web page written by a content writer and he mentions in the introduction page of my Company the following:

    "We are investor's trusty steed"

    This expression sounds a little vague. Hence, I want more clarification about it.

    First of all, it's ungrammatical. There needs to be a word (such as the) before investor's.

    Do you understand the use of the metaphor trusty steed?

    It does not sound right for the context to me- I think the writer may be trying too hard.

    Also, "investor's" doesn't work. If it really is singular, it needs an article. If it's meant to refer to all investors, then the apostrophe is in the wrong place.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
