tastytrade Wins Best Biz "Gold" Award as Most Innovative Company in 2013

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Nov 20, 2013) - tastytrade, the fastest growing financial media network, was awarded the Gold in the 2013 Best in Biz Awards competition for the most innovative small company in North America. 

Best in Biz's independent panel of judges from top-tier media outlets and analyst firms recognized tastytrade's unique combination of financial media and technology as having an outsized impact on the investment landscape. tastytrade recently launched beta dough.com, an online and mobile platform for do-it-yourself investors, designed to make complex investment products and strategies simple.

Tom Sosnoff, CEO of tastytrade, explained the company's emergence in the competitive industry. "We're producing not only a full eight hours of live financial programming every day on tastytrade, we're also building the most innovative investor engagement and trading platform with dough.com. And we do it by leveraging a team of best-of-breed professionals from the trading, technology and production worlds."

tastytrade offers a complete schedule of investment programming with content ranging from beginner to advanced -- all for free. dough.com is the portal for a new intuitive, easy-to-use engagement platform that merges tools for trading with live content streams from individual traders, including doughTV coming in January 2014.

Sosnoff continued. "The Gold award from Best in Biz and the response we're getting from a growing number of people who have never invested before, but are now really excited about it, is a tremendous validation of our business. Our approach is the exact opposite of what Wall Street and traditional media has been feeding the public for decades. That stuff doesn't help people at all. We actually do real trades, live on air. We walk the walk, and that builds peoples' confidence in their own ability to invest themselves and not rely on over-priced money managers and analysts." 

tastytrade's pioneering work in merging complex probability and volatility metrics with straightforward trading strategies is transforming not only the way the public invests, but also the financial industry. "When we do something on Monday and see other networks and platforms copy us by Friday, we know that we're moving the needle," said Sosnoff.
