Happy Birthday Freezing Assets!
Two years ago this month your CFA Society of Minnesota decided to embark on a project that would attract both the creative and analytical writing talents of CFA members in our region. Additionally we wanted a method of distributing important proprietary content generated from CFA Minnesota, such as the Compensation Survey and presentation summaries from local and guest speakers at CFA Minnesota events throughout the Upper Midwest. Eventually the fruits of this effort became FreezingAssets.org.
We recruited an Editorial Board, gathered volunteers to help generate content, and launched the site in early August of last year. The response we received both inside and outside our region for Freezing Assets vastly exceeded our expectations. As of mid-September, 2014 we received over 7,700 unique views with nearly 35% repeat visitors since our launch. This also includes over 12,000 page views and over 300 views internationally. Freezing Assets was also a part of a broader Excellence in Member Engagement nomination for the CFA Society of Minnesota at a recent CFA conference in London earlier this year. While we did not win, we were happy to receive recognition.
Therefore we would like to thank the CFA Minnesota Staff, the Freezing Assets Editorial Board, and our great contributors for a job well done.
But, of course, our greatest thanks goes to you the reader. We appreciate your support and readership over the past 15 months. We will strive to improve and broaden this blog as time progresses.
