FINalternatives’ New Blog: Off The Record

Mar 7 2011 | 4:40pm ET by Deirdre Brennan

For those of you who know me personally, you know that the articles on FINalternatives contain but a fraction of the industry knowledge (read: gossip) that my colleagues and I are privy to each day. While we have no intention of turning into a Page Six or a Dealbreaker (we couldn’t if we tried, Bess Levin is just too damn funny), we have decided to add a casual blog feature to FINalternatives.

In this blog, my colleagues and I will point out upcoming industry events, links to interesting articles, and, perhaps even some juicy unconfirmed tidbits of gossip that don’t quite measure up to our usual standards for news. And in true blog fashion, this section will allow for comments, so we hope to hear from you.
