It is owned by MoneyWeek Limited, which is now a subsidiary of London-based Dennis Publishing Limited, which owned it once before, prior to 2002.
MoneyWeek, founded by Jolyon Connell, was launched in November 2000 and originally published in association with Dennis Publishing. It was designed as a financial version of The Week magazine, which was founded by Jolyon Connell five years previously.
MoneyWeek was sold by Dennis Publishing to Financial News Ltd. in August 2002. In late 2003 it was bought by U.S. financial publisher, Agora Inc. headed by Bill Bonner, who contributes a weekly column in the magazine.
A South African edition of MoneyWeek was launched in June 2007, initially on a subscription basis, with newsstand availability from 2008. A French language edition, published in Paris, was launched in September 2008 but disappeared at the beginning of October 2011. The winding up of MoneyWeek France was officially pronounced at that time.
MoneyWeek supported Leave in the UK's 2016 EU Referendum.
In 2017, Moneyweek was re-acquired by Dennis Publishing. The brand will join Dennis’ Current Affairs division, which include award winning, market-leading titles, The Week and The Week Junior, TheWeek.co.uk and The WeekDay app.
MoneyWeek provides a digest of the week's financial and investment news, and also covers associated economic and political stories.
In addition to the news digest, it features market commentary and analysis, share tips, interviews, travel and lifestyle pieces.
Ban in China
In April 2015, MoneyWeek was effectively banned in China after having its publishing permit revoked for reporting on corruption.
