Pageant Media yesterday announced the acquisition of information services brands (II Seaches, Foundation & Endowment Intelligence and Money Management Intelligence) which provide critical insight for asset managers who need to understand current investor activity.
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 and real estate – news and analysis, data and events.
This acquisition complements the growth of Pageant Media’s existing business intelligence networks, says the company, by providing information on active investor searches across hedge funds, mutual funds and real estate. The addition of II Searches, a database product used by asset managers, further extends Pageant Media’s reach into key data services and workflow products.
Commenting on the announcement, Charlie Kerr, CEO of Pageant Media, said: “This acquisition marks a significant step in the development of Pageant Media’s asset management business information services. We look forward to integrating these brands into our business and evolving their digital offering. These products will benefit from Pageant’s belief in strong content, user engagement and creating a membership model that delivers real value.”
II Searches; Foundation & Endowment Intelligence and Money Management Intelligence have been sold to Pageant Media by Euromoney Institutional Investor. Staff from both the UK and US will join Pageant Media’s London and New York offices .
