SINGAPORE, 17 July 2017 - Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) and Business Insider (BI), the US-based global business news source, have entered into a licensing partnership to operate Singapore (www.businessinsider.sg) and Malaysia (www.businessinsider.my) editions of BI.

By combining this with our deep local knowledge we have in our newsrooms, we believe we will have something special to offer that readers will enjoy.'

Business Insider pioneered a new type of business news tailored to how young professionals and entrepreneurs today consume content, as well as the topics of most interest to them, including finance, technology, innovation, and trends.

BI Singapore and Malaysia will offer local news, business, and lifestyle coverage, in addition to content from BI's newsrooms around the globe, including Australia, Germany, UK, and its New York headquarters.

Mr Roddy Salazar, VP International, Business Insider, said: 'We're thrilled to partner with SPH on Singapore and Malaysia editions of Business Insider. SPH has a deep understanding of business media and the digital space, so it's the ideal partner to serve local readers with BI's unique style of business news: social and mobile at its core and laser-focused on the news that emerging business leaders want and need to know.'
