Finextra has introduced a set of 12 RSS newsfeeds as part of a rolling programme of new site features and enhancements.
The XML-based news syndication service has been introduced in response to reader demands for continuous Finextra news updates direct to the desktop. Users can elect to take a simple headline news and company announcement summary, or choose from a range of channel-specific alerts mixing news, PR and analytical feature-length coverage of distinct industry segments. We’ve also provided a feed from Finextra’s popular careers centre for readers who want to be continually updated on the latest financial technology job opportunities.

Additionally, the Finextra newswire is being made available as a free syndicated feed for display on third party Web sites and intranets. Vendors, banks and industry associations can customise the look and feel of the ticker to match their own site's branding.

The latest developments follow the successful upgrade of the Finextra news delivery platform late last year, to incorporate extended news analysis, a PR ticker and intelligent searching across the entire 20,000+ documents in the four year old Finextra Research archive.
The enhancements have been rewarded with a steady growth in user numbers and site stats. The Finextra public site currently clocks up 650,000 page views per month from 34,000 regular visitors. More than 16,500 members of the worldwide financial technology community have now signed up for our free daily and weekly e-mail newsletters.

Finextra head of research Paul Penrose, says: "Feedback from members has been extremely positive. We're constantly refining the site in line with member input and plan to add more functionality in the coming months."
In the meantime the Finextra team are taking a well-deserved break as the news desk closes for business in accordance with the UK public holiday on Monday 2 May.
