Gay Financial Network Launches a Faster, More Informative Finance and Investment Website

The Gay Financial Network, LLC (gfn.com), distributor of online financial and investment information and services, recently announced the introduction of a new gfn.com website. The new site (www.gfn.com) is an enhanced version of the original gfn.com site, launched in April of this year.

The gfn.com redesign improves the user's experience by greatly simplifying site navigation, thereby allowing users to find the information they need faster and more easily. By providing access to gay and lesbian-targeted content, as well as a vast array of general financial and investment information, gfn.com offers the gay and lesbian investor a truly unique service on the web. Through its new easy-to-use interface, improved searching capability and convenient investment services, the new gfn.com provides users an alternative to sifting through endless, frequently irrelevant web links looking for the information they need.

According to Walter B. Schubert, Jr., president and CEO of gfn.com, the new site is a direct result of user feedback and illustrates the company's ongoing commitment to be the leading provider of financial information targeted to the gay and lesbian investor. "Up until now, the goal of providing high-quality information to meet the unique personal financial needs of gays and lesbians has been non-existent at worst, and a second-tier goal at best. For gfn.com, it is our only reason for being. We understand that gay men and women may have different financial goals and risk profiles than other investors, and gfn.com serves to meet those differences in a way that other financial institutions cannot. However, we also recognize that there are many similarities among all investors, and we have not shortchanged those needs," said Schubert. "Today's gay and lesbian investors are looking to maximize their finances by gaining personally relevant knowledge in a time-efficient manner, without sacrificing accuracy or breadth of information. gfn.com is meant to serve the widest variety of needs of the gay and lesbian community. "
