On Tuesday, Robinhood, a California-based financial services company, announced the expansion of its business with the launch of a financial news platform, Sherwood Media.

The company, which operates the major US commission-free stock trading and investing application Robinhood, also runs three other subsidiaries: a digital asset service provider, an institutional brokerage firm, and a broker-dealer and brokerage clearing services provider.

In a statement, Robinhood noted that Sherwood Media will provide news about financial markets, the economy, business and technology. The company added that the new financial news platform will build on the success of Snacks, its daily markets and business newsletter.
