The Alpha Pages Acquires Leading Hedge Fund News Provider

Jul 9 2014 | 8:18am ET

New media firm The Alpha Pages has recently acquired leading global hedge fund and private equity news provider FINalternatives.

New York-based FINalternatives, which was founded in 2005 by Deirdre Brennan, is the most widely-read daily news source focused on the alternative investment industry, according to (6/30/2014) Alexa rankings. Brennan will continue to run the publication, which joins 43-year old print publication Futures Magazine and other investment-related digital media properties acquired last year by The Alpha Pages.

FINalternatives will continue to operate as usual, but we’ll now have additional resources to expand our coverage of alternative investments, as well as our reader base around the globe,” said Brennan.

“Adding the premier hedge fund news site to our existing slate of investing titles will allow us to extend our coverage beyond futures, commodities and natural resources,” said Jeff Joseph, CEO of The Alpha Pages. “This acquisition brings us one step closer to our goal of creating a complete global information network for the alternative investment industry.”

Joseph added: “Investors’ desires to diversify, along with increasing concerns with the integrity of publicly-traded investments have fueled greater interest in a wide variety of alternative private investments from hedge funds, digital currencies, venture capital and peer-to-peer lending to even more exotic derivative investments. There are hundreds of private investor networks and product platforms, but investors have few choices when seeking access to objective information about these products. The Alpha Pages intends to be the definitive platform for real talk on alternative investments, business and finance.”
 
In addition to the FINalternatives acquisition, and the pending debut of its new website, The Alpha Pages will publish its first issue in August as a special print supplement in the 500th monthly edition of Futures Magazine.

The print debut of The Alpha Pages will feature an exclusive interview with Kentucky Senator and 2016 presidential hopeful Rand Paul, a look at exotic wagers on the potential future earnings of professional football players, as well as stories on bitcoin, online poker and liquid hedge fund strategies. Current Futures Magazine subscribers will automatically receive the new publication and it will be available on select newsstands.
