Our Story


Today, information is available at your fingertips. On your mobile phone, smart TV, PC and tablet.
But, quality financial news and journalism are becoming harder to find.
We started Rask Media with one simple idea in mind:

free quality financial information, no matter what.

We also offer views from Expert contributors.


Who are we?
