The Motley Fool and Mint.com Partnering to Make Personal Finance Easier

I’m very pleased to announce the launch of our partnership with The Motley Fool today. Our relationship with them means we’ll be able to offer great Motley Fool personal finance and investing advice to you here, on the Mint.com Content Network. And we’ll be introducing the Mint.com service to the thousands of people visiting the award-winning Fool.com web site, as well. The co-branded application is available at http://fool.mint.com.

I’ve been a big fan of Motley Fool for over a decade now. In fact, the Motley Fool guided my very first investing strategies back in 1996. I think their take on investing and personal finance advice is insightful, simple, and direct. This is what we aspire to at Mint as well. The Motley Fool first approached us in October right after we launched at TechCrunch 40. They immediately resonated with our mission to help people understand and do more with their money. Even before we were the leader in personal finance web-apps, they saw our potential. I’m honored to have them as a partner. You can read more about the partnership here.

You can see Motley Fool content on our Content Network today at www.mint.com/blog, with much more to come in the future. In general, expect more articles on smart investing strategies from Mint in the future. Many of you who are Mint.com users have noticed that we quietly added brokerage and investment account tracking to our money management service last month. Stay tuned for more in that area soon. We’ll be unveiling a pretty exciting, Mint-like approach to understanding and doing more with your investments this month.
