The Financial Times is launching a new supplement for the fund management industry on Monday February 4. The new weekly tabloid supplement, called FT fund management (FTfm) will be distributed with the FT, and will be the world’s largest circulation fund management title, offering one of the most comprehensive pricing services for funds.
FTfm builds on the FT’s already extensive coverage of the sector and will cover a wide variety of industry news, analysis and trends, interviews with high profile fund managers and investors, opinion pieces and fund performance reviews. FTfm will also carry the full listings of the managed funds, which currently appear daily in the FT.
Commenting on the launch of the new supplement, Andrew Gowers, Financial Times editor, said, “The FT has always offered the most comprehensive coverage of this industry and we know our readers would like to receive more in-depth information on this subject. As the spotlight grows on fund management and the performance of funds, a supplement such as FTfm will provide readers with essential insight and analysis of fund management and the people behind it.”
Simon Targett, formerly the FT’s investment correspondent, is the editor of FTfm. The title will be available in each of the UK, European and Asian FT editions, and available by subscription in the US. It will have an initial circulation of approx. 370,000 copies.
Earlier this month, the FT launched FT Fund Ratings (www.ft.com/fundratings), a new online service designed to help investors compare and understand more about funds. These ratings will now also appear in FTfm.
