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]

The circulation of Investir was 108,000 copies in 1994.[1] In 1997 the magazine had a circulation of 100,000 copies.[9] Its circulation became 190,000 copies in 1999.[9] At the beginning of the 2000s Investir was also one of three leading business magazines in France with higher circulation than the others.[4]

Jacques Derouin was among the editors-in-chief of Investir who left the post in August 2005.[10] He also held the same post for Investir Hebdo, a weekly sister magazine of Investir.[10]

During the period of 2007-2008 the circulation of Investir was 98,000 copies.[11] On 5 February 2011 the magazine merged with another business magazine, Journal des Finances, to form Investir-Le Journal des Finances.[6]
