FT best for reaching Europe’s business decision makers

According to the latest Business Elite Europe Survey (BE Europe), the Financial Times reaches more European business decision makers than any other international business news brand in the study. The FT also has the largest total brand reach*.

BE Europe, the longest running international media survey, found the FT’s total multiplatform offering, available on desktop, mobile, tablet, print, and smartwatch, reaches a quarter of all BE respondents. The study also found media consumption remains high among the business elite across web, mobile and print, and newspapers remain the most trusted source of business news.

Other findings include:

  • FT’s audience is unique and unduplicated: 80% do not read another international daily.
  • The FT newspaper is seen as the most important business read.
