About Us


Publication Overview and Readership Profile


Global Investment Technology is a bi-weekly publication (24 issues per year) that serves a very highly targeted audience among the institutional investment community.


Now commencing our 20th year, Global Investment Technology serves readers in executive management positions--including senior trading-, portfolio management-, operations-, and technology professionals--on both the buy-side and sell-side. The publication also has senior executive-level readers at custodial banks, depositories, stock exchanges, and other asset services providers. The current readership profile is as follows:  Investment managers 40 %; Broker-dealers 25%; Banks 20%; Other Financial 15%.


Our readership is skewed toward the executive level, and includes titles such as Chief Executive Officer, Chief Information Officer, Chief Operating Officer; Managing Director and Head of Global Trading; Head of Operations & Technology; to name just a few.


Our readers also include executives responsible for financial technology and IT infrastructure decisions within their firms. They value Global Investment Technology’s unique blend of business, technology and operational coverage that provides strategic intelligence for a transforming securities and investment industry. The publication serves a demanding readership in a highly competitive investment marketplace that seeks best execution, cost-efficiency, and innovative ways to enhance performance.


In today’s highly electronic investment markets, it is virtually impossible to separate the business of financial firms, i.e. investment products and services, from the technology at the core of those financial products and services. Most senior securities and investment executives will have technical backgrounds, because technology is at the core of the investment process. These technology-savvy investment professionals form the core audiences of Global Investment Technology.


Editorial Environment


Global Investment Technology provides highly targeted coverage of financial technology—software, systems and services—used in the institutional investment management process. Our coverage addresses the entire investment process from front- to back-office, with a distinctly buy-side focus.


Among our trademark areas of coverage are electronic trading, trade order management and routing, algorithmic trading, direct market access (DMA), electronic trading forums, securities regulation and market structure, and exchanges. Hedge funds, risk management, portfolio management and accounting, portfolio analytics, swaps and derivatives, trust and custody, clearance and settlement, and straight-through processing, are also frequently covered topics.


Because of our position of thought leadership in the financial technology arena, Global Investment Technology is particularly well-suited to providers of electronic products and services, who may be seeking to create awareness and heighten their marketing profile in US financial markets. Our editorial focus is strictly on the institutional side of the securities and investment industry—the retail side of investment management is not part of our coverage, nor do we reach individual investors.


Global Investment Technology’s editorial staff has over 50 years’ combined experience covering the technology used in the institutional securities and investment marketplace. Pavan Sahgal, our Editor in Chief, is well-known and highly respected in the financial community, with over 25 years experience as a financial technology journalist and industry analyst.
