Bloomberg Media is Top Business Media Brand in Europe for Third Consecutive Year

Ipsos Affluent Survey Europe 2016 results underscore influence among ultra-high-net-worth audiences

LONDON, UK: Bloomberg Media has been named the number one business media brand* in Europe for the third consecutive year, according to the results of the 2016 Ipsos Affluent Survey Europe (formerly European Media & Marketing Survey or EMS), the industry benchmark and globally recognized advertising tool.

The results survey the top 13% of adult European consumers based on personal income. The new figures show Bloomberg Media has the highest reach with ultra-high-net-worth individuals (EUR 3 million+ in private investments excluding home/mortgage), C-Suite, Business Decision Makers, and Financial Professionals in the competitive set**.

Bloomberg Television has been confirmed as the best choice of advertising platform to reach affluent viewers***. The results also showed the power of Bloomberg Media’s print and digital products, showing growth across the portfolio.

Viktoria Degtar, Head of Sales, Bloomberg Media, EMEA, says: “Maintaining our position as the number one business media brand in Europe for the third year is an immense achievement and something we are very proud of. These results prove the strength of our brands in engaging an affluent, influential yet hard to reach audience across the continent – one of the key benefits for commercial partners working with Bloomberg Media on powerful multi-platform campaigns.”
