Magnate was a free men's lifestyle publication.[1] It was published between 2012 and 2016.

History and profile[edit]

Originally a print publication, the magazine launched on 12 December 2012.[1] The launch edition of the magazine was distributed on 14 December 2012 throughout London's Kings Cross, Victoria, Liverpool Street and Paddington Railway stations and throughout office locations in Central London.[2]

In mid-2013 it was announced that Magnate would be distributed exclusively to distribution stands in the capital, replacing all train station distribution.
