Open Door Media

Open Door Media Publishing Ltd (“ODM”) was created from the MBO of InvestmentEurope from Incisive Media in 2013.

InvestmentEurope is staffed by a senior team of many years’ experience across editorial, delegate relations, research, sales and marketing. InvestmentEurope offers a suite of digital products including the website, which is responsive to mobile and tablet users, digital editions of the magazine, in-depth market research, a monthly print publication, and a portfolio of conferences and awards that bring asset managers and fund selectors closer together.

InvestmentEurope is dedicated to being the ‘go-to place for the fund selector community’.

In January 2016, ODM re-launched International Investment for international investment professionals – such as international independent financial advisers and wealth management professionals serving expatriate and cross-border clients around the world.

Originally founded in 1997, ODM acquired the brand and its associated International Fund & Product Awards from Incisive Media.

International Investment is dedicated to being the ‘go-to place for the international investment professional’.

In late 2016, a third brand was added to the business, as ODM acquired Offshore Investment from its founders. The brand has grown over the past three decades to offer a programme of conferences targeting professional services providers to multi-jurisdictional high net worth clients – particularly in areas such as trust and company formation and tax advice – the brand is present in over 160 markets worldwide. A monthly publication and website support the development of this business.

Offshore Investment is dedicated to being the ‘go-to place for the offshore professional’.
