The Investors Chronicle is a weekly magazine in the United Kingdom for private investors and is published by the Financial Times Group. The magazine publishes articles about global markets and sectors, and news on corporate actions such as takeovers and share issues. It was established in 1860, and has been considered a "highly influential magazine".[2]

History[edit]

The Investors Chronicle was first published on 9 June 1860[3] as the Money Market Review.[4] In 1914, it merged with the Investor's Chronicle and Journal of Finance. In 1928, publication was taken over by Brendan Bracken. In 1967, the Investors Chronicle merged with the Stock Exchange Gazette. And in 1978, it re-established its connection with the Financial Times, by becoming part of the FT Group. It is now published by the financial magazine division of FT Group, which is owned by Japanese media group Nikkei.
