What are you thinking?

We've unleashed another exciting update to the Community Section of Finextra. Call me Ebeneezer, if you will, but just because Christmas is around the corner, I don't think it's time yet to allow the Finextra web team to slacken off. When you go to your private Member Profile section (click on your name in the Community tab), you will now see a n...

Follow us

We've added a new section and a quick link on the right hand side of the home page called, "Follow us". This enables you to link through to our Twitter account and also to sign up for our daily newsletter as well as to link to our RSS feeds. A small change but hopefully a useful one.
