It’s a big day here at Wesabe. We’re excited to announce that we’ve signed a partnership with Telegraph Media Group, publishers of The Daily Telegraph, the UK’s biggest selling quality daily newspaper. A co-branded version of our site, called the Telegraph Personal Finance Planner – launches today at Telegraph.co.uk (TCUK):
With 22.9 million unique visitors in September, TCUK is the UK’s fastest growing quality newspaper website.
This partnership will give Wesabe the ability to help millions of new international members better manage their money and reach their financial goals. It also represents much more than a distribution deal – with the Personal Finance Planner, consumers no longer need to head to a bank or finance site to check their balances. They will now have the opportunity to view their finances in the same place they already turn for news and information. There is tremendous potential here – imagine viewing the day’s news through the lens of your financial goals. Seeing your finances contextualized by what’s happening in the markets or the grocery store.
For our U.S. members, it’s business as usual – this deal will not have an immediate impact on you. It does, however, further validate our view that your banking data should be open and free, and we hope it will lead to additional partnerships. And the larger the Wesabe community grows, the more powerful our aggregate spending trend and tips data becomes.
In looking for ways to take Wesabe global and to start helping more people worldwide better manage their finances, we couldn’t ask for a better partner than Telegraph Media Group. Cheers to our new partner, and welcome to our new Telegraph members.
