GT News, the global knowledge resource for over 65,000 treasury, finance, payments and cash management professionals, has become part of Contentive Media, the publishing group that produces PaymentEye.
The Association for Financial Professionals, which acquired GT News in 2007, announced earlier this year that the website would merge with its own site from the start of July. Consequently, more than two months have passed since GT News last posted any new articles or blogs.
That changed this week and they are back in business, under new ownership and fully resourced.
GT News is also incorporating the best elements of Treasury Insider, which has already attracted a wide audience of professionals since its launch last year.
The publication will continue to provide the comprehensive global coverage of all things topical to the treasury and finance profession as we have done since launching nearly 20 years ago.
Having been relocated to Washington DC two years ago by our former parent, GT News is once more based in London. The return to the UK not only reunites with its former stablemate, bobsguide, but also with many members of the team who were previously involved in the management of both titles, including Anne-Marie Rice (CEO).
In addition, our new ownership means that GT News is now part of Contentive Media, a publishing group that produces other prestigious titles for finance professionals, such as PaymentEye, Accountancy Age and Financial Director.
Part of the relaunch involved the revival of the editorial agenda for the remaining months of this year and selecting topics for next year.
