History and profileEdit

Affärsvärlden was founded in January 1901.[1][2][3] Its former publisher was Ekonomi och Teknik Förlag AB.[4] The magazine is published weekly[5] by Affärsvärlden Förlag AB, which is a subsidiary of Talentum Sweden AB.[1] The magazine is based in Stockholm.[5]

Affärsvärlden merged with another business magazine Finanstidningen in 1964.[2] However, the merge was not a success in terms of circulation in that it could only achieve a circulation of four to five thousand copies.[2] In 2002 Affärsvärlden acquired the editorial office of Ekonomi24, an internet-based economy news agency founded in 1999.[6]

The target audience of the magazine is investors and decision-makers in large and medium-sized enterprises.[7]

Emil Fitger served as the editor-in-chief of Affärsvärlden from 1914 to 1953.[3] Göran Lind is the editor-in-chief of the magazine.[7]

In 2004 the circulation of Affärsvärlden was 14,700 copies.[8] The magazine sold 26,200 copies in 2008.[9]
