The media sector has changed dramatically in recent years as the rise of digital and other advances in technology have inspired businesses to find innovative new ways to reach and engage their customers. Thanks to these changes, media has become an increasingly important part of the UK economy.

It’s also a key focus for Phoenix; we have invested across the media sector and worked with leading management teams to make sure businesses are well positioned to benefit from the rapid changes in the industry. We have invested in a diverse range of companies, including information and data providers, media analytics specialists, and exhibition organisers.



Examples of some of our investments in the sector
