Quote (from the term for stock price), first published in November 1986, is a Dutch magazine which is most notable for making the Quote 500, a list of the 500 wealthiest people Netherlands with their financial position, similar to the list produced by Forbes.

Quote is published monthly and provides information about the business, money, career, networks and life at the top. In December 1999, the magazine was named " Magazine of the Year" by the Dutch Publishers' Association, the editorial office is based in Amsterdam. Quote was sold by the founder Maarten van den Biggelaar and two friends to Hachette Filipacchi Médias (HFM) on July 21, 2006. Editor Jort Kelder then stepped down in April 2007 after more than thirteen years.

In November 2002, Quote published the first picture of real estate magnate Willem Endstra and ex-Heinekenontvoerder Willem Holleeder who were sitting on a bench outside the office of Endstra in South Amsterdam. Endstra, who had always denied his links with the underworld, filed a summary proceedings in which he demanded that Quote be withdrawn from the market, he said he feared for his safety. Initially, his claim was upheld, but a few days later it was decided differently in a second procedure.

In November 2003, the editor of Quote was shot, and the culprit was never found. A few days earlier, the home of Van den Biggelaar was shot as well, on 1 November 2011, Mirjam van den Broeke succeeded Sjoerd van Stokkum as the new editor. Former editor Jort Kelder temporarily returned to the business magazine as advisor to the new editor, since november 2016 is Sander Schimmelpenninck the editor.
