Pageant Media "acquires" Hedge Fund Intelligence

Well, well ... 'What are the "..." for, boss?' Because I don't if they've paid for it, Voice. Yet again, there is no mention of money. / Yes, dear reader(s), it's the Thursday night PR email, back by popular demand. 'The first one of the year!' Yeah. / Right. Let's get it done.

Pageant Media, the business information specialist, today announces the acquisition of Hedge Fund Intelligence, a series of business information, data and workflow products - including EuroHedge and AsiaHedge - and global events, which provide a 360-degree view of the hedge fund world. 

Fine. How much did it cost?

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 - exposure to market leading news and analysis, data and events. This acquisition provides Pageant Media with a series of synergies and brand extension opportunities for its existing market-leading hedge fund brand, HFM, and will increase the company's scale and reach in the global hedge fund space. 

Fine. How much did it cost?

Commenting on today's announcement, Charlie Kerr, Chief Executive of Pageant Media, said: "This latest deal will enable to Pageant Media significantly to enhance its business information offering to the hedge fund industry. As with the recent acquisition of II Searches, we look forward to integrating these brands into our business and evolving their digital offering. These products will also benefit from Pageant's belief in strong content, user engagement and creating a membership model that delivers real value."

Fine. I ain't got a problem with it. But how much did it cost? 'Maybe it was free, boss. You could have "acquired" it.' Ha! I've got enough on my plate with this fucking blog.


Okay. Laters!
