TradeKing Helps Bring Popular FinCon Digital Financial Media Conference to Charlotte

Sponsorship Underscores Growing Impact of Personal Finance Bloggers, Podcasters and Syndicated Content Developers on the Investor Community

CHARLOTTE, N.C.--()--Recognizing the growing role alternative financial media plays in educating and informing the general consumer population, TradeKing Group Inc., today announced its sponsorship of the FinCon 2015 Conference, taking place this fall in Charlotte, NC. FinCon is the fastest-growing annual event focused on personal finance/investing bloggers and journalist, podcasters, authors, Youtubers, and financial professionals. More than 600 attendees are expected at the event. The conference will take place September 17 – 20, 2015 at the Westin Charlotte hotel.

“The FinCon conference attendees represent some of the most influential voices in the country when it comes to money and investing,” said Gary Silverstein, TradeKing’s Vice President of Marketing. “Increasingly, these independent content experts are becoming the trusted sources for consumers on topics ranging from online trading to retirement saving to everyday money management. They provide an invaluable service to the consumer by digging in deeper on certain financial topics – topics that the traditional media often no longer have the luxury to cover as diligently. We’re delighted to play a key role in this fascinating event.”

Among the activities TradeKing will host is the official kickoff night “Welcome Party” at Unknown Brewing Co., featuring the best of Charlotte food, music and micro-brewed beer; as well as the Podcasting Stage, which will air a variety of personal finance content throughout the conference.

"We are excited to partner with TradeKing on our 2015 event. They understand our community, and we're confident they will be a great guide for us to experience the best of what Charlotte has to offer,” said FinCon founder Phillip Taylor. “TradeKing provides a great investing solution that many of our attendees routinely recommend to their followers. Additionally, they understand the need to reach consumers with great financial content and have been doing that well themselves for several years."
