Yahoo planned to launch on Friday a new site with personal-finance information for consumers. Yahoo Personal Finance builds on the company's popular finance site and adds free tools and how-to guides for tax planning, budgeting, real estate planning, and saving for college and retirement.
It also offers calculators to help determine issues such as loan payments. Yahoo has licensed content from 25 partners including CNNMoney.com, Consumer Reports, The Motley Fool and The Wall Street Journal. The site also integrates pertinent Yahoo Answers that have been culled from the question-and-answer site.
