It's late April and time again for me to ask for your support. (If you already support us, thank you. This message is not for you.)
2022 is turning out to be a challenging year as the pandemic pall is tiring and economic activity drags.
But to see your way through a chronic situation like this, you should be able to rely on trusted information sources.
We are making a big effort not to be partisan, be fair and objective, and dig deeper into the issues with independent analysis.
If you know we are helpful and doing that, can I ask for your direct Support?
Relying on advertising is fickle.
We work for you, so being supported by you makes sense to me.
You know us - what we do and the resources we make available to everyone. None of this is inexpensive. But we are keen to keep almost all our resources free for all readers.
We know most readers accept the open access but only a tiny fraction support us. That is where you come in.
We need a small band of readers who know this is worthwhile: holding banks, insurers, the real estate industry, government, regulators to account with coverage that isn't constrained by 'sponsorships', government journalism subsidies, or large advertisers.
We would love you to join us as a Supporter. If you do for $10/month or $100/year (or more) you get:
- 100% ad-free website browsing
- A digest of the top stories of the past month, and
- Satisfaction you are supporting an independent, home-grown professional and passionate news team.
In the future there will be more specialist tools that will empower investors, savers, and anyone with financial interests.
Keen? Here’s what to do
Just click the ‘Become a supporter’ button at the top of the page to start your support of $10 a month or $100 a year, and you’ll get the best, ad-free interest.co.nz reading experience and some exclusive items! Or click here. You can also specify the amount, or choose the one-time option if you prefer.
Finally, thank you for your readership.
