The Siebert Financial Corporation, headed up by early women’s rights supporter Muriel Siebert, has purchased two websites, wfn.com (Women’s Financial Network) and herdollar.com to form a powerful women’s financial website. The new site will address the financial needs and interests of women, including online investing, trading, retirement planning and small business financing.
Siebert, a long time feminist and businesswoman, was the first woman to buy a seat on the New York Stock Exchange in 1967, and the first woman to be the New York State Superintendent of Banking. She was also one of the first people to establish a discount brokerage house in 1975. The Siebert Financial Corporation has been ranked number one by Smart Money and Kiplinger’s above Fidelity, Charles Schwab, E*Trade, and Ameritrade.
