NEW YORK, NY and ATLANTA, GA, July 17, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Remark Media, Inc. (NASDAQ: MARK), a global digital media company, announces today a new Knowledge Partnership with the nation's largest fee-only financial planning organization, the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA). The announcement follows content partnerships with veteran personal finance advisor Jane Bryant Quinn and The Garrett Planning Network who joined as content contributors.
"The partnership with NAPFA brings independent, objective financial advice for individuals and families to DimeSpring," said Carrie Ferman, CEO of Remark Media. "One of our many key differentiators is to connect our users to experts with varied experience and NAPFA brings to the table three decades of expertise."
NAPFA began in 1983 when a group of advisors joined together under a common goal of serving their clients without muddling the relationship with commissions. The organization's 2,500 financial experts will contribute original content to DimeSpring through features, Q&A and active engagement across key topics within financial planning--at no cost to the consumer.
"We are delighted to join DimeSpring as a knowledge partner to help the public become better, more knowledgeable, investors and savers," said Ellen Turf, CEO of NAPFA. "One of NAPFA's core missions is to be a champion of the public through our network of fee-only financial planners."
Leading up to DimeSpring's fall launch, Remark Media will continue to build a diverse group of authors and experienced business journalists that will contribute engaging, interactive content to the DimeSpring platform with the goal of simplifying financial matters to help people make better-informed personal finance decisions.
