Incisive Media acquires Open Door Media

Jonathon Whiteley: “We are excited that we are able to bring Investment Europe and International Investment back into the Incisive Media fold."

This highly complementary acquisition will benefit asset management businesses looking for distribution both in the UK and across the Continent, says Incisive Media.

ODMP is a financial services media company that brings fund selectors and asset management companies together through its publications, digital products, and its extensive portfolio of over twenty conferences across Europe. The company also publishes International Investment for the global adviser community and produces the International Fund and Product Awards, now in their nineteenth year.

ODMP was founded in 2013 by Nick Rapley (Chairman) and Louise Hanna (Director) through a management buyout of the Investment Europe brand from Incisive Media.

According to Incisive, the acquisition allows the management at ODMP to continue to realise growth whilst accessing a larger, well-resourced event management and digital infrastructure and gives Incisive’s asset management customers access to a unified pan-European portfolio of events and marketing services.

“We have known and worked with Nick, Louise and their team for many years and are excited that we are able to bring Investment Europe and International Investment back into the Incisive Media fold. This acquisition strengthens our asset management publishing and event properties and adds real depth and quality to our growing portfolio for the benefit of our readers, delegates and asset management clients. I look forward to working closely with Louise and Nick in the coming years,” said Jonathon Whiteley, CEO, Incisive Media.

Nick Rapley, founder and Chairman of Open Door Media commented, “The integration of Investment Europe into Incisive Media will be hugely beneficial to both our customers and the audiences we serve. We recognise Incisive Media as the leading provider of products and services to the UK market for nearly twenty-five years. Their knowledge, experience, and extensive resources will allow us to invest in our business so that asset managers can benefit from unparalleled access to both the UK and European fund selector communities.”

Louise Hanna said: “Open Door Media provides an invaluable service for the European fund management industry and we are delighted to be able to use the significant resources of Incisive Media to take the business forward for the benefit of the sector. Our customers often want access to both the UK and Europe and now we will be able to offer the best marketing solutions to help them achieve their objectives.”
