TORONTO, Feb. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RATESDOTCA, Canada's leading rate comparison website, is pleased to announce Jameson Berkow joined the company as Managing Editor on February 22, 2021. In this role, Berkow will oversee the production of content expanding on the company's existing resources and advocating for greater financial literacy.

"I am truly excited for this opportunity to help Canadians with what are often their most difficult decisions.” The RATESDOTCA platform is already doing that for over 8 million people. “We now have the potential to help even more Canadians with the financial issues they face every day," adds Berkow.

Berkow has been a prominent voice in Canada's financial community for the better part of two decades. His journalism has taken him across the country, from the boardrooms of downtown Toronto to the oil fields of Fort McMurray and the cannabis shops of St. John's. An experienced reporter, editor and broadcaster, Jameson has previously held senior newsroom roles with the Financial Post, BNN Bloomberg and The Globe and Mail. He is a member of the Society of American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW) and holds an honours degree in international economics from Queen's University.

Berkow joins a strong RATESDOTCA editorial team, including Mortgage Editor, Rob McLister who provides readers with breaking news on mortgage and interest rates. Together, McLister and Berkow will advocate on behalf of Canadians through education and unbiased content about saving money through comparison shopping of insurance and money products in Canada.

With surging home prices and debt levels, the need for Canadians to save money wherever they can has never been greater. Berkow and McLister will work across the organization, leveraging a team of subject-matter experts to provide Canadians with the information and resources they need to make better money decisions. Says Berkow: "I love the emphasis on helping people 'make better money decisions' because, ultimately, every good business journalist has a similar mantra."
