NEW YORK – February 5, 2020 — Today, Verizon Media announced the launch of Cashay, a new personal finance hub developed for younger, diverse audiences, offering a fresh perspective on money, managing finances, and preparing for the future at every stage of life.
With a modern look and design, Cashay aims to guide readers through their biggest financial decisions with experiential and educational content. Cashay’s high-quality editorial approach breaks down financial issues, from taboo topics to insightful explainers. In partnership with the Financial Fitness Group, which boasts the largest FINRA-compliant financial content library in the industry, Cashay democratizes financial content with real-life anecdotes and intuitive user-first capabilities, including:
- An extensive library of 400+ content pieces offering advice from financial literacy experts. Topics include managing student loans, improving credit scores, and starting to save for retirement with an entry-level salary;
- Innovative native tools and calculators focused on college savings, debt, mortgages, and budget by lifestage;
- Anecdotal and data-driven stories at launch, including: how three young adults live on salaries between $48,000-$55,000; a spotlight on Millennial and Gen Z job burnout; an investigation on the impact of multi-level marketing schemes on young women; a deep-dive into the effects of raising the minimum wage; an exclusive data analysis on the maximum loan amount students should take on by major, and more.
