Mediafin[edit]

De Tijd was established and financially supported by the Vlaams Economisch Verbond. In 2005, two major Belgian media conglomerates, the Flemish De Persgroep (a.o. Het Laatste Nieuws and De Morgen) and the Walloon Rossel (a.o. Le Soir) purchased Uitgeversbedrijf Tijd, the mother company of De Tijd and Editeco, the publishing company of L'Echo, the French counterpart. Both newspapers were integrated in the newly established Mediafin, in which De Persgroep and Rossel each hold a stake of 50 percent. Both newspapers stayed independent, but they work in the same building at the historical site of Tour & Taxis (nl) in Brussels since the merger. The current editor-in-chief of De Tijd is Isabel Albers. Frederik Delaplace is editorial director of Mediafin.
