WSJ launches $2,000 service covering central banks
WSJ Pro Central Banking is the first in a premium suite of products from Dow Jones and The Wall Street Journal. It is a membership service that delivers news, analysis, data and alerts on the Fed and global monetary policy, as well as access to world-class networking events, featuring top newsmakers, peers and experts.
The Journal is targeting business leaders and corporations who want to stay ahead of global monetary policy news and analysis. The analysis, data and tools on the site help senior practitioners to make informed investment decisions.
Every morning, members will have a daily briefing sent to their inbox, with analysis from expert journalists including chief economic correspondent Jon Hilsenrath. They will receive breaking news alerts, keeping them updated on the latest developments — and what they mean — at central banks around the world.
“With the powerful combination of our peerless reporting and unrivaled data, The Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones are uniquely placed to serve these professional verticals across news, data and events,” said Gerard Baker, editor in chief of The Journal, in a statement. “WSJ Pro will showcase the breadth of our coverage, coupled with unparalleled expertise, making it an indispensable resource for members.”
Other features of WSJ Pro Central Banking include a Fed speech analyzer and an interactive central bank watch that shows how economic indicators have changed after monetary policy has been enacted. Members also get to ask Hilsenrath and editors of WSJ Pro Central Banking their most pressing monetary policy questions.
Individual memberships costs $2,000 in the first year and $2,400 a year thereafter. Corporate memberships are available.
