Press Release: Pageant Media Announces the Acquisition of Institutional Investor Journals
Pageant Media, the business information specialist, today announces the acquisition of Institutional Investor Journals (II Journals), a business which produces in-depth, original and practical research in global investment and finance aimed at professional institutional investors. The portfolio consists of 12 titles, covering various disciplines in portfolio management and has an extensive online archive of almost 10,000 research articles. The Journal of Portfolio Management is the flagship title, recognized as the authoritative practitioner research title.
Pageant Media is one of the financial sector’s fastest growing providers of intelligence and insight. The company, founded in 1998, provides membership services offering senior professionals – across a range of industries, including hedge funds, mutual funds, private equity and real estate – exposure to market leading news and analysis, data and events.
This acquisition provides Pageant Media with synergy opportunities within its existing market-leading products, notably Fundmap, HFM Global and Fund Intelligence, and will increase the company’s reach in the institutional investment space.
Commenting on today's announcement, Charlie Kerr, Chief Executive of Pageant Media, said: “The II Journals are recognized across the asset management sector for their excellence in providing senior professional investors and leading academics with informed and thought-provoking technical analysis. We look forward to investing further in these titles and are excited to begin thinking about the ways in which the specialist knowledge exhibited in these journals can bolster the growing information and networking services we provide to our hedge fund, private equity, real estate and mutual fund communities.”
Institutional Investor Journals were previously owned by Euromoney Institutional Investor, with the business located in New York. Staff will join Pageant Media’s New York offices.
