The EagleTree-backed companies Arc and The Channel Company have acquired Incisive Media: Arc is taking over Incisive's financial services and business sustainability portfolios. The Channel Company will acquire Incisive's technology portfolio.
By adding Incisive Media's financial services and business sustainability portfolios, Arc is expanding its sector diversity across the UK market with the addition of leading financial services and business sustainability brands such as Investment Week, Professional Pensions, Professional Adviser, and BusinessGreen.
„This split allows us to support that growth in a relevant and focused way.“

We are pleased to welcome Incisive Media CEO Jonathon Whiteley and the financial services and business sustainability teams to Arc, and look forward to growing and developing these portfolios.

Jonathon Whiteley, CEO of Incisive Media, said, "Following a very successful period of growth over the last few years, Incisive Media is now ready for its next stage of development. The global platforms of Arc and The Channel Company offer natural homes for Incisive Media's brands and people. Our audience and customer centric approach to growing and supporting the end markets that we serve fits squarely with the philosophies of both Arc and The Channel Company. This split allows us to support that growth in a relevant and focused way. I am excited about the future and look forward to working with Simon and his team at Arc to take Incisive Media into this next and exciting chapter."www.incisivemedia.com
