Telegraph Media Group has joined forces with financial opinion and analysis service Breakingviews.com, aggregating its financial commentary in the Daily Telegraph and on Telegraph.co.uk.
Breakingviews.com’s stories are syndicated in newspapers and magazines around the world and are available to paying subscribers online. The site recently ended a publishing deal with the Wall Street Journal and this week also announced a tie-in deal with the New York Times.
The company was founded in the 1990s by editor-in-chief and former Financial Times journalist Hugo Dixon who said last week that 95 per cent of the company’s customers had renewed their subscriptions in the first half of 2008, despite the global economic slowdown. He said there would be more deals announced in America, Canada and Australia in the coming months across online, print and mobile platforms.
Dixon said: ‘Breakingviews.com and the Telegraph are natural partners. The Telegraph’s own set of top business commentators is highly complementary to our own. Together we can make a huge impact in the City of London and further afield.”
William Lewis, editor-in-chief at Telegraph Media Group, said: ‘At such a difficult, but fascinating time in global markets, the Telegraph newspaper and online readers will be able to benefit from breakingviews.com’s insights.”
