AsianInvestor.net has re-launched its website.
You will see this is an evolutionary step, not a radical departure. One thing that has not changed is our aspiration to serve as the leading platform for the asset-management and investment community in Asia-Pacific. That means we will continue to deliver breaking news and unique, independent analysis of the industry.
We have redesigned the look of the website and our daily e-mail newsletter to offer more ways to view our content. This means more links, photo galleries, added visual elements to stories, and platforms for our webcasts and future projects in video. We've introduced a weekly poll for a bit of fun (and useful insight).
Perhaps most importantly, we have dragged our search function into the 21st century. Our archive now boasts more than 7,000 stories -- we have been at this for 10 years -- and we want paid subscribers to have a cleaner, more efficient experience using our wealth of material. You will also be able to follow links in our stories and get a constant update on our 'most read' stories, to see what your competitors and clients are looking at.
All this is good news for the advertiser as well as the reader. We have improved the opportunities for targeted banner advertising, as well as spaces for sponsored webcasts, video and article or research contributions. We can now offer a much richer media environment that can be tailored to match what we do in print and through events.
We also have a new job listing section done in conjunction with our sibling title. The AsianInvestor/FinanceAsia Careers Centre, powered by eFinancialCareers, is designed for the specific needs of the financial services professional. The job opportunities available are from companies across the region and around the world and cover a wide choice of positions for investment bankers, traders, asset managers, analysts, risk managers, treasurers, auditors, CFOs and so on. Currently there are more than 1,200 jobs advertised in the region, targeting people with five to 15+ years of experience.
There is one other important change. Content will now be 'free to air' for 48 hours, meaning only paid subscribers can access our stories after two days. Non-subscribers will be permitted to read up to 20 articles in any 30-day period for free, but to access any more will require a subscription.
Existing subscribers may continue to enjoy a free rein, but we have a promotional rate on offer for those who want to extend their access. For subscription queries, please contact [email protected].
For advertising queries, please contact [email protected].
And to provide feedback -- comments, suggestions and so on -- please contact our editor, Jame DiBiasio ([email protected]) or the site's managing editor, Joe Marsh ([email protected].net). We'd love to hear from you.
