Excite UK Re-launches "Money & Investing" Channel

Excite UK has signed a two-year content deal with Interactive Investor International (iii) for a new "Money & Investing" channel to run on Excite UK's portal.

The deal means that Excite UK's existing "Money & Investing" channel is effectively being re-launched with new content and state-of-the-art personal finance functionality.

"Learning to deal with the different aspects of personal finance can be a daunting experience," said Evan Rudowski, general manager of Excite UK.

"By launching a next generation personal finance site...we are harnessing the power of the web to make this easier, and putting quality information and tools at our users fingertips. This deal with iii follows closely after our partnership with Egg and enables us to take our personal finance offering one step further."

The new site will carry information on taxation, mortgage best buys, loans, investments, saving plans and pensions, together with share prices and breaking news. A community feature will allow Excites users to chat about current financial topics, while a "Knowledge Bank" will explain financial issues in jargon-free language.

iii, a major supplier of financial information in the UK, also has operations in Asia and South Africa and an offshore site at www.offshore.net for international investors.
