Investment Week to celebrate 25th anniversary in 2020

The brand will mark this significant anniversary with an ambitious programme of events, a commemorative edition of the magazine, as well as a series of special features, interviews, social media content and videos throughout the year.

To celebrate hitting a quarter of a century, Investment Week will look back at the key events that have impacted its readers, including the bursting of the dotcom bubble and the global financial crisis, as well as regulatory changes such as the Retail Distribution Review and MiFID II.

 “It is a testament to the work of some great journalists over the past 25 years that Investment Week has remained at the very heart of the investment industry during a period of great change for the sector and the publishing world,” said editor-in-chief Katrina Lloyd. “I am delighted to be celebrating this huge milestone with some exciting initiatives that reflect this change.”

Tim Weller, chairman of Incisive Media, commented: “On January 30, 2020, we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the launch of Investment Week and the beginning of our journey in building Incisive Media. I am immensely proud of what we have achieved and am forever grateful to the many Investment Week staff whose passion and commitment has been an inspiration. I am also incredibly thankful for all our customers’ support over so many years.”

Investment Week has evolved significantly to meet the rapidly-changing information needs of its readers since 1995. The weekly magazine has been there from the start and readers can also now catch up with all the latest investment news and analysis online at www.investmentweek.co.uk, through daily email newsletters or on social media including Twitter and LinkedIn.

The brand’s events programme has grown substantially over the past 25 years, and now features flagship events including the industry-leading Fund Manager of the Year Awards, Women in Investment Awards and Funds to Watch conferences.  

We have chosen Teamspirit, the award-winning full-service agency, as our official communications partner for the anniversary. Teamspirit will also celebrate 25 years of working with the financial services industry in 2020, making this a fantastic partnership between the two brands.

Kirsty Maxey, CEO of Teamspirit, said: “Like Investment Week, Teamspirit will be celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2020.  We created our business to transform the world of financial services and that mission still holds true today.  Just as the journalistic landscape has changed dramatically over this period, so has financial communications.”
