Open Door Media Publishing Ltd, owner of InvestmentEurope is relaunching International Investment, which will serve the international adviser and wealth manager market.
The title has been acquired from UK based business to business publisher Incisive Media, which originally launched the publication in the 1990s, but suspended publication in 2008. The acquisition also brings the International Fund and Product Awards to ODM. The Awards have been running annually since 1999.
Tim Weller, chief executive of Incisive Media, said: “We are very happy that Open Door Media is resurrecting the International Investment brand and taking ownership of the International Fund and Product Awards. Open Door Media has done a magnificent job with Investment Europe since the management buyout in 2013 and I have no doubt that they will now deliver excellent products for the international adviser market as well.”
Nick Rapley, chief executive of Open Door Media Publishing Ltd, added: “We are delighted to be relaunching International Investment, a brand Tim Weller and I first launched in 1997. Much has changed since then but the Awards have been a constant and we are excited about developing these further under the International Investment brand again.”
Helen Burggraf (pictured) is the editor of International Investment and chair of the Judging Panel for the Awards. With many years of experience as a journalist covering the international adviser market, she said: “These Awards have always sought to recognise and reward excellence amongst product providers serving the international adviser community. I am excited that International Investment is being relaunched and that the profile of these important awards will now be developed further.”
Open Door Media Publishing Ltd was formed in 2013 as a result of the management buyout, led by Nick Rapley and Louise Hanna, of Investment Europe from Incisive Media.
International Investment will be relaunched early in 2016 and will target international advisers with expat clients around the world. The brand will consist of both digital and print products that will support the Awards and event portfolio.
The 17th International Investment Fund and Product Awards will take place next autumn. Full details will be released closer to the time.
