 For today’s discerning financial and investment professional

A letter from the Editor IFA Magazine is the fastest-growing and most innovative newcomer to have hit Britain’s financial publishing scene for many years. In less than three years since its launch, IFA Magazine’s has grown its reader base and standing in the adviser marketplace to unprecedented levels. The magazine’s website is now garnering 30,000 unique visitors per month – and it’s still growing fast - and IFA Magazine has also been shortlisted for the prestigious PPA Business Magazine of the Year Award. IFA Magazine owes its success to its trademark blend of sharp professional analysis and strongly argued opinions from leading industry figures – all wrapped up in one of the most visually exciting packages that you’ll find anywhere in the publishing environment. A lively, stimulating and always readable editorial approach is complemented by specialist sections that include coverage of technical issues such as compliance, FCA policy development, and platform technology. But actually we think it’s the unmistakable twist of humour that keeps our readers turning the pages. Graphically, IFA Magazine simply exudes quality. From the high-gloss cover to the perfectbound spine and the startlingly intense quality of its graphic imagery, its design owes more to the higher-level lifestyle magazines than to the ordinary financial press. Our readers know how to appreciate the finer points of a well-presented publication, and they are proving intensely loyal. The coming year sees a further diversification of our print activities, with a number of specialist supplements planned on subjects including ETFs, pensions and financial planning. But the magazine and its website have been only the start. IFA Magazine is currently moving into new media, with forums and groups of its own

on Twitter, LifeTalk and LinkedIn. Our dedicated IFA News Centre features RSS and video feeds from hundreds of sources, making us the obvious portal for advisers who want all the news in one place. IFA Magazine is moving actively into the recruitment and FX spaces, with dedicated online resources being developed in conjunction with our strategic partners. 2013 saw a major expansion of our IFA Magazine Events activity, with nearly a dozen seminars, discussion forums and training roadshows taking place throughout the country. We have had enormous support and sponsorship from the fund management industry for these events, which have been held in locations as diverse as the London Chamber of Commerce and the Belfry Golf Hotel near Birmingham. Next up? Our new TV and Video Division, developed in conjunction with BAFTA-winning director Peter Georgi, is going to be making a splash in the new year, offering advertisers the opportunity to produce platinum quality video for the web and other marketing channels. IFAs are facing a new world which is changing not just because of a welter of regulatory reforms, both from London and from Brussels, but also because of the most challenging global environment we’ve had in half a century. IFA Magazine meets the need for information about this new world with equally challenging commentary, with good looks and good humour. Readers don’t browse our pages, they devour them. IFA Magazine has already reached its target readership among Britain’s premier adviser groups. We’re looking forward to a bright future, and we hope you’ll be part of our new direction. Best wishes,

Michael Wilson Editor IFA Magazine

Website We have a full web site SEM and social media team, headed by Kam Patel our Digital Editor. Our web traffic has doubled in the past 12 months. 30,000 unique visitors per month, generating 150,000 page impressions.

£50/cpm across site for standard banners/mpus £75/cpm for expandable banners or special formats


Website promotion production and publication of a content piece digitally across appropriate channel. We will need approximately 350-500 words (plus any images required) for each piece. These must be supplied in two different formats on the same topic – one as a news review piece, one as an opinion or comment piece (attributed to an appropriate spokesperson).

This will allow us to publish in both sections of the web site (as well as the home page). Advertisers supply a key word or phrase they would like to have highlighted as part of our SEO activity for each article. Each piece will be distributed and highlighted on social media channels and also included on weekly news alert, with full report to follow.

The Natixis example As an example of how this activity will work, we ran a real-time test based on

Natixis. This revolved around a story of a recent survey they had completed.

Within just a few minutes, it had appeared prominently on Google and was top of Google news (only below the actual Natixis sites) which illustrates the power or our messaging and SEO capability. The article was then included within one of our weekly news alerts (below).

This generated a huge open rate and healthy click through rate specifically on the Natixis article. Full weekly report supplied.
