Investir was a French language monthly business magazine published in Paris, France, between 1974 and 2011.

History and profile[edit]

Investir was established in 1974.[1] It was relaunched in 1988.[2] The magazine had been published by Hachette Filipacchi until 2001 when it began to be published Quebecor World Inc.[3] It was part of Groupe les Echos, publishing subsidiary of LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA.[4][5][6] It was published monthly by Investir Publications SA[2][7] and its headquarters was in Paris.[2]

It provided in-depth analyses and practical tips for managing the assets to its readers and audience, including major companies in the country.[2][4] The magazine founded Actionnaira which was a personal investment trade show and organized numerous trade-related events and activities.[8]
