Ringier to publish Business Insider for Africa

The digital edition leads with an exclusive interview with Tony Elumelu, Chairman of the Board of Heirs Holdings, the United Bank for Africa and Transcorp.

ZURICH, Switzerland, Jan 20 – Ringer Africa Digital is set to publish the first Business Insider magazine in Africa after acquiring Sub-Saharan Africa rights of the global magazine.

It will cover business news, enterprise, finance, politics, and technology from across the continent and beyond.

Business Insider Africa will also feature news highlights from around the world and African reknowned commentators, including Bright Simons, Ethel Cofie and Herman Chinery.

Ringier Africa General Manager, Leonard Stiegeler, says the magazine will complement its coverage in Africa as well as add quality business journalism that reflects what’s happening within and outside the continent’s business sector.

The Sub-Saharan Africa version will be operated by Rangier under its Pulse new media brand.

Ringier, through Pulse, ended a three-month partnership in November 2016 with Kenya’s Ghafla after earlier reports indicated the pan-African new media company had acquired the Kenyan publication.

Business Insider Africa will feature Tony Elumelu, Chairman of the Board of Heirs Holdings, the United Bank for Africa and Transcorp, in its first issue due on 23 January in West Africa before it spreads to the rest of the continent.

Business Insider, which is part of the Axel Springer family, is the largest business news site in the US and one of the fastest-growing news brands in the world.

“We’re thrilled to launch our 15th version of Business Insider in Africa – an incredibly exciting and fast-growing market. Ringier has a deep understanding of the digital space and is the ideal partner to help us bring to Sub Saharan Africa Business Insider’s unique voice and attitude,” said Henry Blodget, Global Editor-in-Chief and CEO of Business Insider:
