It will be staffed by a talented team of content creators and seasoned journalists who together will work to produce stories that are informed and compelling.

"The immense opportunities created by the Internet, in terms of both content and trade, have ushered in a true golden age," said Kenna, Money & Tech's chief executive officer and co-founder, with Bohlman.
