Social Networking Site LinkedFA Teams Up With Nasdaq.com
linkedFA, a FINRA-compliant social networking site for financial professionals, announced a partnership with NASDAQ.com.
The partnership gives linkedFA members direct access to NASDAQ’s Financial Advisor Center, which offers financial planners access to news, commentary, educational tools, job listings, advisor calculators and other resources.
Conversely, users of the NASDAQ Advisor Center can directly access linkedFA and leverage social media as a professional tool.
linkedFA was launched in November 2008 and adheres to FINRA required compliance, supervision and record keeping features.
“We are delighted to enter into this partnership with NASDAQ.com and integrate premier content into our site to enhance the value of linkedFA for our members,” says linkedFA president and founder Jason Bishara.
“Social Media in the financial industry is still very new and rapidly evolving. Our growth strategy, which includes actively utilizing feedback from members and collaborating with tier one providers of content and compliance solutions, enables us to continually improve the user experience for members, investors and enterprise organizations and evolve our offering to incorporate highly valued content onto our site,” he added.
“Financial advisors who visit NASDAQ.com will benefit greatly from our collaboration with linkedFA,” said Bruce Hashim, NASDAQ OMX Vice President. “This enhancement to the Financial Advisor Center further facilitates the ability of financial planners to actively engage with peers and investors. Through innovation, we are empowering financial planners and promoting market transparency.”
