NEW YORK, May 4, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Wall Street Journal today launched CFO Journal, a new premium service tailored specifically to the needs of chief financial officers and other senior financial executives. In a single, definitive online destination, CFO Journal subscribers receive exclusive news, insight into trends, interviews with key newsmakers, as well as a financial data dashboard and a morning briefing delivered via email that sets the day's financial agenda.

"Not only is the new service a source of relevant news and real-time analysis, but it provides tools financial professionals need for key business decisions."

Subscribers to CFO Journal receive full access to WSJ.com, immediate news and analysis from Dow Jones' 2,000 journalists worldwide and Factiva SmartSearch with more than 20,000 premium sources. Key features of CFO Journal include:

  • Must-read financial articles hand-picked by a dedicated team of editors and financial journalists focused on the news from the perspective of the corporate-finance suite;
  • Compact briefing on critical news affecting corporate finance, plus exclusive Journal reporting that probes deeper on important topics like accounting, compliance and liquidity;
  • The option to subscribe to a daily morning briefing with a short, sharp column outlining the main issues for the business day;
  • Users can also customize news alerts and company profiles for relevant industries and topics, as well as monitor real-time market data essential to corporate executives.

Deloitte LLP is sponsoring a regular stream of CFO-centric content and timely features, including research, topical digests, perspectives, and insights and technical analyses.

"CFOs are challenged by ever-increasing demands as their role expands and evolves," said Sanford A. Cockrell, III, national managing partner, U.S. CFO Program, Deloitte LLP. "This opportunity to contribute our best thinking on a spectrum of timely CFO issues strongly aligns with our goal to help them manage the complexities of their roles, drive more value in their organizations and adapt to strategic shifts in the market." 

CFO Journal is the latest in a series of premium content product verticals from Dow Jones that also includes Wall Street Journal Professional Edition, DJ FX Trader and a Dow Jones Investment Banker. A subscription to CFO Journal is $49 per month, while current subscribers to WSJ.com get full access until August 1.

In addition, leading chief financial officers from the world's top corporations will convene in June for a new executive council – The Wall Street Journal CFO Network – to develop and prioritize tangible actions to deal with the rapidly changing economic and regulatory environments. The inaugural meeting of this invitation-only Network will take place June 20-21 at the Park Hyatt in Washington, D.C.
