Seeking Alpha's Nick Ward brings investment insight to Maven


SEATTLE -- Highly respected Seeking Alpha contributor Nick Ward brings investment savvy for his generation to the digital media coalition Maven (ticker symbol MVEN) with the Income Minded Millennial.

“We’re living in a world where the media landscape is experiencing volatile change and I am happy to have found a home where authenticity and expertise are so highly prioritized,” Ward says.

“From a technological standpoint, Maven is top notch and I look forward to integrating audio and video into my content offerings,” he added. “One of the most attractive elements of the platform is that it allows readers to play a significant role in the discussion, which I believe will create an engaging, entertaining, and educational environment for the Income Minded Millennial.”

To get a better handle on his own financial future after graduating from college in 2012, Ward began studying Warren Buffet and reading Seeking Alpha. He started to build wealth in a mostly conservative fashion and soon became one of Seeking Alpha’s most popular authors, sharing insights and tips for dividend growth investing. With Income Minded Millennial, he is amplifying his insights for achieving steady, long-term gains.

“Nick is an outstanding young mind in the world of finance, offering a millennial point of view for developing financial freedom,” says Maven CEO James Heckman. “His viewpoint and focus lend depth to our growing segment of financial and economic experts. They form a powerful combination of authenticity and community engagement.”

The Income Minded Millennial joins Maven’s growing finance and economics category that includes live channels operated by Bob Brooks (Prudent Money), Sean Hyman (The Logical Investor), Neale Godfrey (Money for Life), Value Digger (, Paul Krake (View from the Peak), Mish Shedlock (MishTalk), Norman Wetmore (Economonitor), Tara Tedrow (Marijuana Maven) and Roger Nusbaum (ETF Maven).
