Finance-industry magazine Institutional Investor (II) recently celebrated its 40th year of publishing breaking news and issues in international investment markets. Based in New York City and owned by the parent company of London-based rival Euromoney, II also produces newsletters and directories plus a ranking system that ahs set industry benchmarks in global finance.
Institutional Investor was launched in 1967 by Gilbert E. Kaplan, who remained as the magazine's publisher until 1990 and its editor-in-chief until 1993 and later became an orchestra conductor. It was purchased three years late by the parent company of rival magazine Euromoney for $142 million, and the parent company afterwards changed its name to Euromoney Institutional Investor plc.
