                                 PROXY STATEMENT
                              

                         ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS
                            TO BE HELD JUNE 18, 2002

         This Proxy Statement and the enclosed form of proxy are furnished in
connection with solicitation of proxies by the Board of Directors of Individual
Investor Group, Inc. to be used at the Annual Meeting of Stockholders of our
company to be held on June 18, 2002, and any postponements or adjournments
thereof ("Annual Meeting"). The matters to be considered at the Annual Meeting
are set forth in the attached Notice of Annual Meeting.

         The proxy will be voted (or withheld from voting) in accordance with
any specifications made. Where no specifications are indicated, the proxies will
vote "FOR" the nominees for directors as described below under Proposal 1, "FOR"
the approval of the change of our company's name (the "Name Change") as
described below under Proposal 2, and, in the discretion of the proxy holders,
on any other business properly coming before the meeting and any postponement(s)
or adjournment(s) thereof. A proxy may be revoked by giving notice to the
Secretary of our company in person, or by written notification actually received
by the Secretary, at any time prior to its being exercised.

         Our company's executive offices are located at 125 Broad Street, 14th
Floor, New York, New York 10004. This Proxy Statement and the enclosed form of
proxy, together with a copy of our company's Annual Report on Form 10-KSB for
the year ended December 31, 2001, are first being sent to stockholders on or
about May 13, 2002.


                                VOTING SECURITIES

         The Board of Directors has fixed the close of business on April 29,
2002, as the record date for the determination of stockholders entitled to
notice of, and to vote at, the Annual Meeting. Only stockholders of record at
the close of business on that date will be entitled to vote at the Annual
Meeting or any and all postponement(s) or adjournment(s) thereof. As of April
29, 2002, our company had issued and outstanding 7,894,552 shares of Common
Stock, our company's only class of voting securities outstanding. Each
stockholder of our company will be entitled to one vote for each share of Common
Stock registered in his, her or its name on the record date. The presence, in
person or by proxy, of a majority of all of the outstanding shares of Common
Stock constitutes a quorum at the Annual Meeting. Proxies that are marked
"abstain" and proxies relating to "street name" shares that are returned to our
company but marked by brokers as "not voted" will be treated as shares present
for purposes of determining the presence of a quorum on all matters but will not
be treated as shares entitled to vote on the matter as to which authority to
vote is withheld by the broker ("broker non-votes").

         The election of the directors requires a plurality vote of those shares
of Common Stock voted at the Annual Meeting with respect to the election of the
directors. "Plurality" means that the individual who receives the largest number
of votes cast "FOR" is elected as a director. Consequently, any shares of Common
Stock not voted "FOR" a particular nominee (whether as a result of a direction
to withhold authority or a broker non-vote) will not be counted in such
nominee's favor.

         The Name Change must be approved by the affirmative vote of a majority
of the shares of Common Stock outstanding and entitled to vote. Because of this,
abstentions from voting with respect to the Name Change and shares deemed
present at the meeting but not entitled to vote on the Name Change (because of a
broker non-vote) will have the same effect as a vote against the proposal.

         All other matters to be voted on will be decided by the affirmative
vote of a majority of the shares of Common Stock present or represented at the
Annual Meeting and entitled to vote. On any such matter, an abstention will have
the same effect as a negative vote, but because shares of Common Stock held by
brokers will not be considered entitled to vote on matters as to which the
brokers withhold authority, a broker non-vote will have no effect on the vote.

                        PROPOSAL 1: ELECTION OF DIRECTORS

         The Board of Directors is divided into three classes. The term of the
first class of directors, consisting of Jonathan L. Steinberg and E. Drake
Mosier, will expire in 2003. The term of the second class of directors,
consisting of Bruce L. Sokoloff and Peter M. Ziemba, would have expired in 2001
but, as our company did not have an annual meeting that year, the term of the
second class of directors will expire on the date of this year's Annual Meeting
and the new term will expire in 2004. The term of the third class of directors,
consisting solely of S. Christopher Meigher III, also will expire on the date of
this year's Annual Meeting and the new term will expire in 2005. In each case,
each director serves from the date of his election until the end of his term and
until his successor is elected and qualified.

         Two persons will be elected at the Annual Meeting to serve as directors
for a term of two years (i.e., in the second class of directors). One person
will be elected at the Annual Meeting to serve as a director for a term of three
years (i.e., in the third class of directors). Our company has nominated Bruce
L. Sokoloff and Peter M. Ziemba as the candidates for election as directors in
the second class of directors and has nominated S. Christopher Meigher III as
the candidate for election as director in the third class of directors. Unless
authority is withheld, the proxies solicited by management will be voted "FOR"
the election of these nominees. In case any of the nominees becomes unavailable
for election to the Board of Directors, an event that is not anticipated, the
persons named as proxies, or their substitutes, shall have full discretion and
authority to vote or refrain from voting for any other candidate in accordance

Board of Directors' Meetings and Committees

         During 2001, the Board of Directors met five times and acted by
unanimous consent on two occasions. Our company has standing audit and stock
option committees of the Board of Directors. Our company does not have a
standing nominating committee. All of the directors of our company attended at
least 75% of the total number of meetings of the Board of Directors and all
committees upon which they serve held during 2001, except for E. Drake Mosier.

         The stock option committee of the Board of Directors is responsible for
administering our company's 1991 Stock Option Plan ("1991 Plan"), 1993 Stock
Option Plan ("1993 Plan"), 1996 Performance Equity Plan ("1996 Plan"), 2000
Performance Equity Plan ("2000 Plan"), and 2001 Performance Equity Plan ("2001
Plan"), each of which is discussed below. The stock option committee currently
consists of Jonathan L. Steinberg and Bruce L. Sokoloff. During 2001, the stock
option committee acted by unanimous written consent on three occasions.

Audit Committee Information and Report

         The company's audit committee was established in June 1996 and is
currently comprised of Bruce L. Sokoloff, Peter M. Ziemba and S. Christopher
Meigher III. The audit committee met three times in the fiscal year ended
December 31, 2001.

Audit Fees

         For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2001, the aggregate fees billed
for professional services rendered for the audit of the company's annual
financial statements and the reviews of its financial statements included in the
company's quarterly reports totaled approximately $51,500.

Financial Information Systems Design and Implementation Fees

         For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2001, there were no fees billed
for professional services by the company's independent auditors rendered in
connection with, directly or indirectly, operating or supervising the operation
of its information system or managing its local area network.

All Other Fees

         For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2001, the aggregate fees billed
for all other professional services rendered by its independent auditors totaled

Audit Committee Report

         Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in any of our
company's previous filings under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the
"Securities Act"), or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the
"Exchange Act"), that might incorporate future filings, including this Proxy
Statement, in whole or in part, this section entitled "Audit Committee Report"
shall not be incorporated by reference into any such filings or into any future
filings, and shall not be deemed soliciting material or filed under the
Securities Act or Exchange Act.

         Each member of the audit committee is an "independent director" and is
"financially literate" as defined under the Nasdaq listing standards. The Nasdaq
listing standards define an "independent director" generally as a person, other
than an officer of the company, who does not have a relationship with the
company that would interfere with the director's exercise of independent
judgment. The Nasdaq's listing standards define "financially literate" as being
able to read and understand fundamental financial statements (including a
company's balance sheet, income statement and cash flow statement).

         Pursuant to the audit committee's written charter, which was adopted on
June 7, 2000, the audit committee's responsibilities include, among other
things:

         o        reviewing the annual audited financial statements with the
                  company's management and its independent auditors and the
                  adequacy of its internal accounting controls;

         o        reviewing analyses prepared by the company's management and
                  independent auditors concerning significant financial
                  reporting issues and judgments made in connection with the
                  preparation of its financial statements;

         o        making recommendations concerning the engagement of the
                  independent auditors;

         o        reviewing the independence of the independent auditors;

         o        reviewing the company's auditing and accounting principles and
                  practices with the independent auditors and reviewing major
                  changes to the company's auditing and accounting principles
                  and practices as suggested by the independent auditors or by
                  the company's management; and

         o        reviewing all related party transactions on an ongoing basis
                  for potential conflict of interest situations.

A copy of the audit committee charter is attached as Appendix A.

         The company's audit committee has met and held discussions with the
company's management and its independent auditors. Management represented to the
audit committee that the company's consolidated financial statements were
prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and the
audit committee has reviewed and discussed the consolidated financial statements
with the company's management and its independent auditors. The audit committee
discussed with the company's independent auditors the matters required to be
discussed by Statement on Auditing Standards No. 61 (Communication with Audit
Committees). The company's independent auditors also provided the audit
committee with the written disclosures required by Independence Standards Board
Standard No. 1 (Independence Discussions with Audit Committees) and the audit
committee discussed with the independent auditors and management the auditors'
independence, including with regard to fees billed for auditing services and for
all other professional services rendered during the fiscal year by the company's
independent auditors. Based upon the audit committee's discussion with the
company's management and its independent auditors and the audit committee's
review of the representations of management and the report of the independent
auditors to the audit committee, the audit committee recommended that the Board
of Directors include the audited consolidated financial statements in its annual
report on Form 10-KSB for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2001.

Director Compensation

         Directors receive no cash compensation for their services to our
company as directors, but are reimbursed for all reasonable costs incurred in
attending meetings of the Board of Directors. Pursuant to the 1996 Plan,
directors who are not employees of our company receive automatic grants of stock
options upon their election or appointment as a director and upon each
re-election as a director. Each stock option is for 30,000 shares of Common
Stock and vests at the rate of 10,000 shares of Common Stock per year after an
equal period of service, and once vested, remain exercisable until the tenth
anniversary of the date of grant unless the director ceases to be a director for
reason other than death, in which case a shorter exercise period may apply. Each
option is exercisable per share at the fair market value per share on the date
of grant. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the director eligible for an award
of a stock option is re-elected as a director and has not yet served as a
director of our company for a term of three full years, the award of the stock
option will be modified as follows: (A) the number of shares of Common Stock
that may be acquired under the stock option will be reduced to (1) 20,000 shares
of Common Stock if the director has served as a director more than two years,
but less than three years, (2) 10,000 shares of Common Stock if the director has
served as a director more than one year, but less than two years, and (3) if the
director has served less than one year as a director, no stock option will be
awarded; and (B) the stock option will be exercisable by the director as to
10,000 shares of Common Stock on each of the second and third anniversaries of
his re-election or re-appointment as a director if the stock option represents
the right to acquire 20,000 shares of Common Stock and the stock option will be
exercisable by the director as to 10,000 shares of Common Stock on the third
anniversary of his re-election or re-appointment as a director if the stock
option represents the right to acquire 10,000 shares of Common Stock. In 1999,
the shares of Common Stock reserved under the 1996 Plan were fully utilized and
our company continued this compensation structure outside of the 1996 Plan in
connection with the appointment of E. Drake Mosier as a director.

                                       6
<Page>


         In May 2001, the Board of Directors approved a special, one time grant
to our company's non-employee directors. Options to purchase 30,000 shares,
vesting in three equal installments of 10,000 shares on May 14 in 2001, 2002 and
2003 were granted to Messrs. Meigher, Mosier, Sokoloff and Ziemba. Additional
options to purchase 10,000 shares vesting immediately were granted to Mr.
Meigher. The exercise price of all of these options were equal to the fair
market value per share on the date of grant.

years ended December 31, 2001, for our Chief Executive Officer and each other

(1)      In 2000, Mr. Barton was awarded a bonus of $125,000 for services
         performed for our company and as an incentive for continued employment.
         One-half of the bonus was paid in 2000 and one-half was earned and paid
         in April 2001.

Compensation Arrangements for Current Executive Officers

         Jonathan L. Steinberg does not have a written employment agreement and
since 1997 he has received an annual base salary of $230,000. In April 2002, our
board of directors and Mr. Steinberg agreed that between April 16, 2002 and
December 31, 2002, Mr. Steinberg would receive no cash salary and instead would
be granted a ten-year option to purchase our company's Common Stock at an
exercise price of $0.05 per share (the fair market value of the Common Stock on
the date of the grant), vesting in bimonthly installments, each installment of
which would have a Black-Scholes value (calculated on the April 2002 grant date)
equal to the amount of cash salary that Mr. Steinberg otherwise would have
received. Pursuant to that agreement, in April 2002 Mr. Steinberg was granted
such an option for an aggregate of approximately 3.6 million shares, vesting
bimonthly between April 30, 2002 and December 31, 2002, in installments of
between approximately 208,000-216,000 shares. If all options granted April 2002
were to vest, the average consideration per option our company would have
received (i.e., the amount of salary our company would have saved) by granting
the option would be slightly above $0.045. In the event that any such option is
exercised, the average consideration per share our company would have received
thus would be slightly above $0.095 (the sum of the approximately $0.045 in
saved salary, plus the $0.05 exercise price our company would receive) - an
amount that is more than 90% greater than the fair market value of the Common
Stock on the date of grant.

         We employ Gregory E. Barton pursuant to a written employment agreement,
which does not have a specific term of employment, and which provides for an
annual base salary of $200,000.

                                       7

<page>

         We employ Howard B. Lorch pursuant to a written employment agreement,
which does not have a specific term of employment, and which provides for an
annual base salary of $140,000. In connection with the commencement of his
employment, on January 1, 2001, Mr. Lorch was granted ten-year options to
purchase 30,000 shares of common stock exercisable at $0.4062 per share (the
fair market value of the common stock on the date of the grant). The options
vest as to 7,500 shares on January 1 in each of 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005. In
the event the company terminates Mr. Lorch's employment without cause within six
months of a change in control, any shares of the options granted that would have
vested due to the passage of time had he remained employed for an additional
twelve months from the date of termination become immediately vested.

Stock Option Plans

1991 Stock Option  Plan

         In 1991, we adopted the 1991 Stock Option Plan ("1991 Plan") covering
200,000 shares of our common stock pursuant to which our officers, directors and
key employees are eligible to receive incentive or non-qualified stock options.
The 1991 Plan, which expired in October 2001 (and therefore no further options
may be granted under this plan), is administered by our stock option committee
pursuant to the powers delegated to it by our board of directors. To the extent
permitted under the express provisions of the 1991 Plan, the stock option
committee has authority to determine the selection of participants, allotment of
shares, price, and other conditions of purchase of options and administration of
the 1991 Plan in order to attract and retain persons instrumental to our
success.

1993 Stock Option Plan

         In 1993, we adopted the 1993 Stock Option Plan ("1993 Plan") covering
500,000 shares of our common stock pursuant to which our officers, directors,
key employees and consultants are eligible to receive incentive or non-qualified
stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock awards, deferred
stock, stock reload options and other stock based awards. The 1993 Plan will
terminate at such time as no further awards may be granted and awards granted
are no longer outstanding, provided that incentive options may only be granted
until February 16, 2003. The 1993 Plan is administered by our stock option
committee pursuant to the powers delegated to it by our board of directors. To
the extent permitted under the provisions of the 1993 Plan, the stock option
committee has authority to determine the selection of participants, allotment of
shares, price, and other conditions of purchase of awards and administration of
the 1993 Plan in order to attract and retain persons instrumental to our
success.

1996 Performance Equity Plan

         In 1996, we adopted the 1996 Performance Equity Plan ("1996 Plan")
covering 1,000,000 shares of our common stock, which is similar to our 1993
Plan, except that incentive options may only be granted until March 18, 2006.
The 1996 Plan is administered by our stock option committee pursuant to the
powers delegated to it by our board of directors.

1996 Management Incentive Plan

         In 1996, we adopted the 1996 Management Incentive Plan covering 500,000
shares of our common stock, pursuant to which our executives or those of our
subsidiaries are eligible to receive incentive or non-qualified stock options,
stock appreciation rights, restricted stock awards, deferred stock, stock
related options and other stock based awards. The Management Incentive Plan will
terminate at such time as no further awards may be granted and awards granted
are no longer outstanding, provided that incentive options may only be granted
until November 4, 2006. Our board of directors administers the Management
Incentive Plan.

2000 Performance Equity Plan

         In 2000, we adopted the 2000 Performance Equity Plan ("2000 Plan")
covering 1,000,000 shares of our common stock, which is similar to our 1993 and
1996 Plans, except that incentive options may only be granted until June 21,
2010. The 2000 Plan is administered by our stock option committee pursuant to
the powers delegated to it by our board of directors.

2001 Performance Equity Plan

         In April 2001, we adopted the 2001 Performance Equity Plan ("2001
Plan"). The 2001 Plan covers 1,000,000 shares of our common stock, and is
similar to our 1993, 1996 and 2000 Plans, except that incentive options may not
be granted since shareholder approval for the 2001 Plan will not be obtained
within one year of its adoption. The 2001 Plan is administered by our stock
option committee pursuant to the powers delegated to it by our board of
directors.

S
ection 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance

         Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended,
requires our company's officers, directors and persons who beneficially own more
than ten percent of a registered class of our company's equity securities
("ten-percent stockholders") to file reports of ownership and changes in
ownership with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Officers, directors and
ten-percent stockholders also are required to furnish our company with copies of
all Section 16(a) forms they file. Based solely on its review of the copies of
such forms furnished to it, and written representations that no other reports
were required, our company believes that during our company's fiscal year ended
December 31, 2001, all its officers, directors and ten-percent stockholders
complied with the Section 16(a) reporting requirements, except that Messrs.
Meigher, Mosier, Sokoloff and Ziemba failed to timely file a Form 5 with respect
to the May 2001 grant of options to non-employee directors.


 
             PROPOSAL 2: TO APPROVE THE AMENDMENT TO OUR COMPANY'S

                   CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION TO CHANGE OUR
              COMPANY'S NAME TO "INDEX DEVELOPMENT PARTNERS, INC."

         In April 2002, the Board of Directors authorized an amendment to our
company's certificate of incorporation to change our company's name to "Index
Development Partners, Inc.," subject to stockholder approval at the Annual
Meeting. In May 1993, our company changed its name to "Individual Investor
Group, Inc.," to align our corporate name with the name of the monthly magazine
we were publishing, Individual Investor magazine. Over the past year-and-half,
our company has largely disposed of its media properties, selling
InsiderTrader.com and Ticker magazine in September 2000, selling the
subscription list of Individual Investor magazine in July 2001 and selling
assets related to individualinvestor.com in November 2001 (we currently continue
to publish Individual Investor's Special Situations Report newsletter). We
believe that the future success of our company will depend upon the results of
our efforts to license our family of stock indexes to companies interested in
creating financial products based on our indexes. We currently maintain eight
stock indexes, under our America's Fastest Growing Companies(R) brand: the
America's Fastest Growing CompaniesSM SmallCap Index; the America's Fastest
Growing CompaniesSM SmallCap Value Index; the America's Fastest Growing
CompaniesSM MidCap Index; the America's Fastest Growing CompaniesSM MidCap Value
Index; the America's Fastest Growing CompaniesSM LargeCap Index; the America's
Fastest Growing CompaniesSM LargeCap Value Index; the America's Fastest Growing
CompaniesSM Total Growth Index; and the America's Fastest Growing CompaniesSM
Total Value Index.

         Since we believe our current name, "Individual Investor Group, Inc.,"
may be associated with the print and online media properties that we formerly
published, and since we expect our efforts to license the above indexes (and
other indexes that we are in the process of developing) will be the primary
focus of activities, we believe that it is appropriate to change our company's
name to "Index Development Partners, Inc.," to align our corporate name with our
mission.



                                       11
<Page>


         If the proposal is approved by our stockholders, a Certificate of
Amendment to our certificate of incorporation will be filed as promptly as
practicable thereafter and the name change will then become effective.
Stockholders will not be required to exchange outstanding stock certificates for
new certificates.

              THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS UNANIMOUSLY RECOMMENDS A VOTE
 
               "FOR" APPROVAL OF THE AMENDMENT TO OUR COMPANY'S
                   CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION TO CHANGE OUR
               COMPANY'S NAME TO "INDEXDEVELOPMENT PARTNERS, INC."


                              INDEPENDENT AUDITORS

         Our company anticipates that it will select Deloitte & Touche LLP as
its independent auditors for the year ending December 31, 2002, although no
formal recommendation has been made to our company's Board of Directors by its
audit committee as of the date of this Proxy Statement. A representative of
Deloitte & Touche LLP, the auditors of our company for the year ended December
31, 2001, is expected to be present at the meeting with an opportunity to make a
statement if the representative desires to do so and is expected to be available
to respond to appropriate questions from stockholders.

                             SOLICITATION OF PROXIES

         The solicitation of proxies in the enclosed form is made on behalf of
our company and the cost of this solicitation is being paid by our company. In
addition to the use of the mails, proxies may be solicited personally or by
telephone or telegraph using the services of directors, officers and regular
employees of our company at nominal cost. Banks, brokerage firms and other
custodians, nominees and fiduciaries will be reimbursed by our company for
expenses incurred in sending proxy material to beneficial owners of the Common
Stock.

                    2003 ANNUAL MEETING STOCKHOLDER PROPOSALS

         In order for any stockholder proposal to be presented at the Annual
Meeting of Stockholders to be held in 2003 or to be eligible for inclusion in
our company's Proxy Statement for such meeting, it must be received by our
company at its principal executive offices in New York, New York, by January 13,
2003. Pursuant to Rule 14a-4 promulgated by the Securities and Exchange
Commission, stockholders are advised that our company's management shall be
permitted to exercise discretionary voting authority under proxies it solicits
and obtains for our company's 2003 Annual Meeting of Stockholders with respect
to any proposal presented by a stockholder at such meeting, without any
discussion of the proposal in our company's proxy statement for such meeting,
unless our company receives notice of such proposal at its principal office in
New York, New York, not later than March 28, 2003.

                                  OTHER MATTERS

         The Board of Directors knows of no matter which will be presented for
consideration at the Annual Meeting other than the matters referred to in this
Proxy Statement. Should any other matter properly come before the Annual
Meeting, it is the intention of the persons named in the accompanying proxy to
vote such proxy in accordance with their best judgment.

                                              By Order of the Board of Directors


                                              Gregory E. Barton

         The Audit Committee shall:

         1.       Review and reassess the adequacy of this Charter annually and

                  independent auditor, review with management and the

                  statements prior to the filing of the company's Form 10-Q.

         5.       Meet periodically with management to review the company's

         7.       Recommend to the Board the appointment of the independent

                  Committee and the Board.

         8.       Approve the fees to be paid to the independent auditor.

         9.       Receive periodic reports from the independent auditor

                  to oversee the independence of the auditor.

         10.      Evaluate together with the Board the performance of the
                  independent auditor and, if so determined by the Audit

         11.      Meet with the independent auditor prior to the audit to review
                  the planning and staffing of the audit.

         12.      Obtain from the independent auditor assurance that Section 10A
                  of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 has not been
                  implicated.

         13.      Discuss with the independent auditor the matters required to
                  be discussed by Statement on Auditing Standards No. 61
                  relating to the conduct of the audit.

                  problems or difficulties the auditor may have encountered and
                  any management letter provided by the auditor and the
                  company's response to that letter. Such review should include:

                  (a)      Any difficulties encountered in the course of the
                           audit work, including any restrictions on the scope
                           of activities or access to required information.

                  (b)      Any changes required in the planned scope of the
                           internal audit.

                  (c)      The internal audit department responsibilities,
                           budget and staffing.

         15.      Prepare the report required by the rules of the Securities and
                  Exchange Commission to be included in the company's annual
                  proxy statement.

         16.      Review with the company's General Counsel legal matters that
                  may have a material impact on the financial statements and any
                  material reports or inquiries received from regulators or
                  governmental agencies.

         17.      Meet at least annually with the chief financial officer and
                  the independent auditor in separate executive sessions.

         18.      Review all related party transactions on an ongoing basis for
                  potential conflict of interest situations.

         While the Audit Committee has the responsibilities and powers set forth
in this Charter, it is not the duty of the Audit Committee to plan or conduct
audits or to determine that the company's financial statements are complete and
accurate and are in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.
This is the responsibility of management and the independent auditor. Nor is it
the duty of the Audit Committee to conduct investigations, to resolve
disagreements, if any, between management and the independent auditor or to
assure compliance with laws and regulations.
