Dear Global Pensions readers: We are saddened to say Incisive Media, the parent company of Global Pensions, has made the very difficult decision to close our publication. This week marks the last of our nearly 13-year run.
Over the years, the title has gained a wide following across the world and developed a strong reputation for providing hard-hitting news and in-depth analysis.
We've worked tirelessly to bring you the latest in investment trends and regulations from your peers around the world. Almost 13 years and 150 issues later, we're proud to say we built the magazine and website into the only truly global source on the pensions market.
Yet, a combination of structural and cyclical factors has led the company to close the brand. This Thursday will mark our last day of delivering asset management news. Over the next few days, you can expect to see highlights of our most-read news and features from the past year, as well as some gems from our archives.
I'd like to take a moment to thank our editorial staff, sales team and events team for their hard work in helping to create our global community.
And most of all, I'd like to thank you, our readers, who have shown tremendous loyalty to the magazine, website and our events around the world. Your support over the past 13 years has been invaluable.
