Dennis acquires MoneyWeek

James Tye: "MoneyWeek is a perfect addition to the growing Dennis Current Affairs portfolio."

MoneyWeek is aimed at upmarket, affluent consumers. It is one of the UK’s leading financial magazine, with a well-established print circulation of 46,498 (ABC Jul-Dec 2016) that includes 45,343 active subscribers. The brand has a superb reputation for independence, consumer focus and investment advice, says Dennis.

Founded by The Week creator, Jolyon Connell, and Merryn Somerset Webb, editor-in-chief of MoneyWeek, the magazine was launched in 2000. The title takes a similar editorial approach to The Week. Agora Publishing published the title from 2003 onwards, and grew both its audience and brand extensions.

James Tye, CEO of Dennis, said: “MoneyWeek is a perfect addition to the growing Dennis Current Affairs portfolio. MoneyWeek already shares some of The Week’s editorial DNA, so it will be a perfect companion to other titles in the portfolio and greatly increase our opportunities in the key financial services market. With such a natural fit between the titles, there will be many ways in which we can cross promote MoneyWeek to both readers and advertisers.

“Dennis is committed to growing our four areas of excellence through launch, investment and acquisition. We acquire brands with a view to invest and grow their reach, which is exactly what we plan to do with MoneyWeek.”

Editor and Co-founder Merryn Somerset Webb, as well as Editor John Stepek, will continue to edit the title under Dennis’ ownership. The team will transfer to Dennis’ new central London offices in Alfred Place over the coming weeks.
