Incisive Media acquires Open Door Media

June 28, 2018

Incisive Media has today announced the acquisition of Open Door Media Publishing Limited (ODMP), publisher of Investment Europe and producer of market-leading conferences for fund selectors across Europe. This highly complementary acquisition will benefit asset management businesses looking for distribution both in the UK and across the Continent.

ODMP is an award-winning 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.

Founded in 2013 by Nick Rapley (Chairman) and Louise Hanna (Director) through a management
buyout of the Investment Europe brand from Incisive Media, ODMP has grown rapidly in five years
to become a pre-eminent provider of business information and networking to the European asset
management industry.

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 our 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.”
