GoBear will exist for marketing purposes

Under the new deal, GoBear’s website content will become part of Finder, along with the company's local services.

Meanwhile, the GoBear brand will continue to operate via social media and email channels.

“Like Finder, GoBear has been committed to improving the financial wellbeing of its audience, with over 55 million people having visited its website since its launch in 2015 to make better-informed decisions,” said Frank Restuccia, Finder’s founder and global CEO.
