The Emerald Group is proud to announce that Emerald Europe Lda., the European subsidiary focusing on impact investment and innovation, has acquired the rights of publishing Forbes Portugal, currently in the market for five years.

The publishing license was acquired directly from the American parent company Forbes Media.

Emerald Europe thus reinforces its presence in the media sector, as it already owns 30% of the first Portuguese digital fact-checking newspaper Polígrafo.

The internationally renowned business magazine, known for its rankings, rigour, and ethically bound journalism, will enhance its digital presence, website and social media in Portugal, leveraging its name and brand recognition to promote the very best being done in the Portuguese-speaking business world.

With its first edition under the Emerald umbrella, Forbes Portugal will continue to be bimonthly. Additionally, 2 editions of Forbes Life will be published, complemented with a multi-content digital platform. With a focus on investment, technology, leadership and entrepreneurship, Forbes Portugal will continue to position itself as an independent source of information, strongly supported by analysis, performance, indicators and quantitative facts.

“We believe in Forbes’ potential as a benchmark in the business world to promote the Portuguese language. It is a strong socioeconomic and cultural asset that will, therefore, be enhanced by new information technologies and by a reinforcement in its current editorial line”, says Raúl Bragança Neto, Executive Director of Emerald Europe.

Nilza Rodrigues will continue leading Forbes Portugal as Editor in Chief.
