Robinhood announced on Monday it has acquired MarketSnacks, which was described as a daily financial news podcast and newsletter, and has re-relaunched these products as Robinhood Snacks. According to Robinhood, as part of the acquisition, MarketSnacks Co-Founders Jack Kramer and Nick Martell are joining us as Managing Editors of News. The company reported:
“Over the past year, we added more resources to Robinhood to help you better manage your investments. We improved market news coverage on our platform, added discovery tools on mobile, and revamped our Help Center to better answer your questions. Robinhood Snacks is a major step towards building out these resources and helping you get more informed on market news.”
Robinhood also reported the Robin Snacks brings readers “digestible and easy to understand” financial news. The media outlet will break down some of the trends and top stories shaping markets to help keep you informed about the news that affects your finances, decisions, and lives.
“Our newsletter gets you informed quickly in just three minutes, and our podcast breaks down the day’s news in 15 minutes. Starting today, anyone can subscribe to the daily and weekly Robinhood Snacks newsletters, and find the daily podcast, ‘Snacks Daily,’ on Robinhood.”
Speaking about the acquisition and re-launching, Kramer and Martell added:
“In 2012, we co-founded MarketSnacks outside our bank jobs to make financial news more accessible and enjoyable for our generation. That aligns perfectly with Robinhood’s mission, and together we can inform millions of people every day. We’re honored to join forces with Robinhood and thankful for our incredible Snackers who helped get us here.”
