In 2003, with the publication of its daily Alternative Market Briefing, Opalesque successfully launched an information revolution in the hedge fund media space: “Opalesque changed the world by bringing transparency where there was opacity and by delivering an accurate professional reporting service.” – Nigel Blanchard, Culross. This hybrid financial news service, which combines proprietary industry news stories and filtered third party reports, has been credited by many industry insiders with delivering precise, accurate, and vital information to a notoriously guarded audience.


Each week, Opalesque publishes 610,000 issues of its eleven specialist publications to industry professionals in over 160 countries. Opalesque is the only daily hedge fund publisher which is actually read by the elite hedge fund managers themselves (http://www.opalesque.com/op_testimonials.html).
