Finance Dublin, and Finance Magazine have, since June 1987, uniquely provided a continuous analysis of finance in Ireland in its monthly publication. It provides the leading monthly analysis and commentary on the evolution of Ireland's continuously expanding international financial services industry, and the competitive provision of finance and financial services in the economy. This year, Finance Dublin marks 30 years of continuous publication, an anniversary the publication shares with the IFSC, which was founded in 1987, with the identification by the European Union of Ireland's IFSC as a special tax area within the European Union's then envisaged single financial services market.
Finance Dublin was established in 1996, as a consequence of the growing IFSC content of Finance Magazine which was first published in June 1987.
Fintel's aim from the outset has been the promotion of financial knowledge through open discourse, evidence based inquiry, and research. Our geographical focus is both global and national, our historic focus has been Ireland, and consequently, the EU, The North Atlantic community, and the world. Fintel's Global Financial Centres (GFC) Conferences have been seminal, as have its conferences on securitisation and debt capital markets, having been one of the very first forums in the world to bring attention to anomalous pricing issues in the run up to the global financial crisis (2006). It also has been credited with being the first publication to seriously question pricing levels in the Irish housing market (in 2000, and before). Its publication Aviation Finance, established in 2011, is a leading aviation finance industry publication, serving one of the most global of industries.
Our mission in advertising is to deliver information to readers from advertisers that helps their search for better value, recognising that every transaction, whether social or commercial, involves search costs. The monetary price of a good usually isn’t a measure of how much a customer has spent on it, nor does it accurately reflect what the producer received. The customer pays the monetary cost plus search costs, which can take the form of consumer research, product assessment and social validation. Sometimes these costs are monetary, but more often they involve time, effort and anxiety, and is is this which ultimately we seek to resolve through our advertising and sponsorship services.
Editorial and Research
We are committed to balanced discourse in ideas, promoting inclusion and tolerance of dissenting views. We seek to publish objective research and information that enlightens readers, taking note of Francis Bacon's observation: "It cannot be that axioms established by argumentation can suffice for the discovery of new works, for the subtilty of nature exceedeth many times over the subtilty of argument" ( Francis Bacon, Novum Organon).
Although Finance Dublin has been variously described as a 'flagship' of the IFSC and indeed its 'bible', it is an independent commercial publication, published by Fintel Ltd. It seeks to provide an all inclusive forum for the expression of differing perspectives, and to reflect the unique contributions of all stakeholders in the industry, both at company and personal professional levels.
In publishing content relating to quoted securities, Fintel and its employees subscribe to a voluntary code of conduct which includes recognition of the principles relating to publications and publishing organisations in the European Union's MIFID ('The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive' - 2004/39/EC).
Finance Magazine, and its sister publication, Finance Dublin have provided readers with a forum of unique and insightful information, and viewpoints, on the businesses making up Ireland's international financial services industry, and has been to the fore in identifying trends and issues in both Irish and international finance.
For example, it identified the importance of securitisation at the outset of its establishment in 1987, and in keynote addresses of Finance Dublin conferences warned, in 2005 and 2006, of impending potential difficulties in the then burgeoning new credit derivative markets. It was one of the first publications in the world to draw attention to a potential crash in credit derivatives, long before the mortgage backed - credit derivatives markets failed in the summer of 2007. On the domestic Irish economy, it was the first publication in Ireland to publish clearly argued and consistent analysis of the overheating of the Irish housing market, and its implications as early as 1995, and in keynote articles published in 2000, in 2007, and in intervening years.
