Yahoo Finance has seen 7% growth year-on-year, with over 1.8 million monthly active users as of September 2023, and is ranked within the top 20 finance sites in Australia according to Ipsos iris data from July 2023. The finance title continues to be a preferred channel among younger consumers, with 70% of readers aged between 16 to 44, 12% higher than the population average.
