Centaur Media plc has sold Centaur Financial Platforms Ltd to Metropolis Group Holdings Ltd.

Centaur Financial Platforms is the financial services division of Centaur Media. It comprises five brands, including a range of weekly and monthly publications, websites, events and awards through the Money Marketing and Mortgage Strategy brands. 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.

Centaur Media is a London-based business information, events and marketing provider to professional and commercial markets.

Oaklins Cavendish, based in the UK, advised Centaur Media plc, on the disposal of four of its non-core businesses, as part of the divestment process that began after Centaur Media concluded a strategic review in October 2018 and decided to focus on its leading brands to improve operational execution.
