The division also includes two research and content brands – Platforum, a subscription-based research and advisory business which specializes in retail distribution and investment platforms, and Taxbriefs, which produces sales aids, learning and reference materials for financial advisors and accountancy firms. The portfolio is completed by Headlinemoney which integrates financial services media by connecting financial services companies and PR professionals with UK financial journalists.
