SEOUL – Oct 7, 2020 – MakeIt, which is a pioneer in South Korea’s ETF markets, h as teamed up with Korea News Plus , the country’s fast-growing English-language news outlet.
Under the two-way alliance, they plan to cooperate in various works about exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and financial news in Asia’s fourth-largest economy.
“We are happy to collaborate with Korea News Plus, which has put forth great efforts to let the world know South Korea’s financial segment,” MakeIt founding CEO Park Soo-in said.
“Based on the bilateral contract, we will find ways to further expand the country’s ETF markets and other financial products.”
In response, Korea News Plus also expressed its hype about the cooperation.
MakeIt presently runs Korea ETF Trend, which is geared toward providing detailed information about ETFs, and Trade Study, a channel aimed at offering financial education. It also owns a YouTube channel with more than 160,000 subscribers.
ETFs have caught on across the globe based on their solid performances. And in Korea, MakeIt has briskly promoted ETFs.
ETFs are designed to track an index as compared to index funds. They are regarded as low-risk investments because of diversification, high price visibility, and low management fees.
Plus, MakeIt came up with multiple books about ETFs. For one, it published “ETF Trend 2020 Vol. 1.” The first edition of the book sold out in a month after it hit the shelves earlier this year.
MakeIt made its debut in 2018 with the aim of helping retail investors, who typically suffer from the lack of proper information. In particular, the Seoul-based outfit has promoted ETFs as a viable target for individual investors.
Korea News Plus came to town in early 2019 with the goal of offering “insider information about Korea.”
The English-language news outlet strives to become the country’s business bellwether by offering various new services, including artificial intelligence news.
