HIGHLAND PARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TalkMarkets, the first new financial-information website to reach critical mass in recent years, just celebrated a milestone. Only six months into beta,, founded by Boaz Berkowitz, formerly of Bloomberg and Seeking Alpha, reached its one millionth pageview in early December and is tracking to reach two million by no later than February.

The year-old media site is carving out a new niche in a well-populated field thanks to a unique approach and the development of proprietary algorithms that allow readers to experience and participate in the site in new ways.

What sets TalkMarkets apart is the customization of content to user’s interests, preferences and level of investment sophistication providing each user with a unique experience which is quick, easy and personally relevant.

"I am very proud of my team and their aggressive approach in helping make TalkMarkets a key player in the financial media arena," commented Berkowitz. "Our spin on the business surpasses others which may have been first-to-market. What I'm most proud of, however, is that we’ve completely redefined the Contributor-Relationship dynamic. TalkMarkets is a contributor "owned" site in that we issue equity in the company to our founding contributors, a unique solution to the current debate on paying for contributor content," concluded Berkowitz. “Our contributors are true partners in every sense of the word and personally benefit in our success.”

Recently, Mark Cuban, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks and one of the investors on ABC's Shark Tank, has joined the site as a contributor alongside hundreds of other famed authors including, Doug Short, James Altucher, Robert Reich, James Hamilton, Tyler Durden, Peter Schiff, and Michael "Mish" Shedlock.

"We are very happy with the steady growth of TalkMarkets," said Berkowitz. "We have been gearing up to launch our contributor equity plan and now that we have over 1 million pageviews, we believe our offering will become a desired commodity."

With over 1 million pageviews and growing, TalkMarkets is being recognized as not only a player in the space but a leader with its new technology for a customized, social experience.
