I’m hopeful that FA today’s unique profiling can help ensure that my content gets in front of the advisors who would benefit the most from it. - Michael Kitces, Nerd's Eye View blog.
New York, NY and Reston, VA (PRWEB) November 12, 2013
Nerd's Eye View, the popular financial planning industry blog and FA today, Inc., the exclusive digital media platform with a membership of validated Independent Financial Advisors (IFAs) only, today announced a strategic partnership to provide information to advisors focused on their specific interests.
"FA today is providing an interesting way for financial advisors to try to find the most relevant information specifically for them, which is absolutely crucial to stay current and provide the best client solutions in the midst of today’s information-laden world. I’m hopeful that FA today’s unique profiling can help ensure that my content gets in front of the advisors who would benefit the most from it," said Michael Kitces, author of the Nerd's Eye View blog.
Leveraging a combination of intelligent filtering, behavioral modeling, and content curation by active and knowledgeable members, FAtoday.com tailors the content provided by its media partners to the interests of each IFA. This proprietary technology lets FA today dynamically deliver the focused resources, practice management, education, industry-specific news, and data to the IFAs from Kitces' Nerd's Eye View blog and other media partners. FAtoday.com continuously refines this model to deliver only the most relevant information, ensuring that vital resources are not lost because of information overload.
FAtoday.com provides an exclusive digital platform for IFAs. Only IFAs whose credentials have been validated are eligible for membership.
"Michael's blog provides an invaluable resource to FA today," said Jason Bishara, president of FA today, Inc. “FA today is all about providing value and saving time for IFAs. The Nerd's Eye View and Michael create extremely insightful and unbiased content. When IFAs are looking for information, we want to be the first website that they use to find news and resources because it is quick, easy, and relevant. Nerd's Eye View meets the needs of advisors who look for current best-practice information in a rapidly changing environment."
Kitces started his blog, Nerd's Eye View (Kitces.com/blog), in 2008 as an outlet to share his perspective on important practice management and financial planning industry trends, blending together Kitces’ experience as both a writer, speaker, educator, and a financial planner.

In addition to writing his blog, he also authors "The Kitces Report," an advanced financial planning educational newsletter which is published six times a year to provide CFP certificants their continuing education credits, is a partner and director of research for the Pinnacle Advisory Group (PinnacleAdvisory.com), and speaks annually at more than 60 advisor conferences.
