CFPN to Launch Private Wealth Magazine

Posted on March 12, 2007

Charter Financial Publishing Network (CFPN), publisher of Financial Advisor magazine, will launch a specialty magazine called Private Wealth: Advising the Exceptionally Affluent in June, 2007. The magazine will target professionals whose clients are worth $5 million to 10 million and up.

"This is a concept that we've discussed for several years and we're delighted to have the two leading experts in this area/space, Russ and Hannah, to enable us to bring it to fruition," says Simonoff. "Their insights into the field, combined with their knowledge and skills, ensure that together we can create a magazine that is at once different and compelling."

According to David Smith, Group Publisher at CFPN, Private Wealth will target professionals catering to the financial, legal and lifestyle demands of the ultra-affluent. Private Wealth will be published bi-monthly and will distinguish itself with high-quality, sophisticated editorial drawn from the extensive academic and practical experience of its contributors. The publication is intended for the advisor or provider whose established business is centered on the exceptionally affluent.

Private Wealth is intended to serve the very "top slice" of several different advisory segments, including private bankers, brokers, asset managers/investment managers, RIAs, insurance producers, trust officers, accountants, family office executives, wealth managers and luxury providers. The initial circulation will be 30,000.

The very affluent is one tax bracket that has done very well in the current economy. The editors of Private Wealth will be Russ Prince, Hannah Grove and Dorothy Hinchcliff, under the supervision of Evan Simonoff, editorial director of all CFPN publications.
