NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Institutional Investor today announced that as of April 1, 2018, it is moving to an all-digital content platform.
This move is a result of sustained and substantial growth in online reader traffic over the previous year, and a corresponding increase in demand for online marketing opportunities from Institutional Investor’s advertising base.
This move will also serve to further reinforce Institutional Investor’s core businesses – higher-margin, customer-driven initiatives that focus on convening and informing the global institutional investor community – which comprise upwards of 95% of the company’s revenues.
“Asset managers and allocators have an increased desire to consume content and market digitally, given the ease of access, efficient targeting, and generational change in the industry,” said Diane Alfano, Chairman & CEO of Institutional Investor. “It’s exciting to watch the evolution of our business and the shift from print to community. This decision allows us to move greater energy and capital to generating more timely, in-depth, and compelling digital content at InstitutionalInvestor.com, while providing greater promotion and support to the company as a whole.”
As the company moves forward with a digital-only platform, the editorial voice of Kip McDaniel, Chief Content Officer for Institutional Investor, and his award-winning team, will continue to be reflected across all Institutional Investor properties.
“Institutional Investor is truly defining the new age of journalism. Our readers and clients live in a multi-channel, digital-first world, and we do too. As a journalist and editor, this is an exciting moment for Institutional Investor, and I’m proud and privileged to lead the editorial voice across our product offerings,” said Kip McDaniel, Chief Content Officer of Institutional Investor.
