SK Media Group will launch a Finnish edition of Forbes later this year, as a result of a new licensing agreement.
Forbes Finland will have an initial circulation of 50,000. The content of Forbes Finland will consist of 60 per cent Finnish business news, commentary and features, and 40 per cent editorial from Forbes magazines from around the world. The Finnish edition will be published monthly in Finnish language.
Forbes Media COO, Mike Federle, said: “We’re excited about Forbes’ expansion into the Scandinavian countries, starting with Finland. SK Media Group has had a lot of success in the Baltic countries and we’re confident that the Group will develop an important presence for the newly launched edition in Finland. This launch continues our rapid expansion into Europe, which has become a very important strategic footprint for Forbes.”
Forbes Finland will take the number of international editions of Forbes to 34. Forbes is a FIPP member company.
