"Faktor.mk" started as an online medium for economics, finance and business in 2012. It was announced as a medium, which should fill the void in the media space with information from these areas.

It produces news, analyzes and interviews and is one of the few portals that regularly monitors the changes on the Macedonian stock market and publishes data on the insurance and banking businesses.

Over the years, it has been profiled in a portal that publishes daily information about Macedonian politics, the judiciary and education. It also publishes columns that are written by academic professors and analysts.

Faktor is also the pivot of the media group consisting of a total of 4 portals. In addition to Faktor, which is the most followed of them, the Faktor Portal company is also the publisher of the “Zenski magazin” (Women's magazine), "Mashki magazin" (Men’s magazine) and the "Hashtag" websites.
