In August 1951, the Financial Review was started as a weekly newspaper. In October 1961 it became bi-weekly and became a daily publication in 1963. In February 1995, The Australian Financial Review Magazine was introduced, followed by a website launch in June of the same year.

Since the 1970s, the Financial Review has been associated with economic liberalism in Australia, driving a consistent editorial line favouring small government, deregulation, privatisation, lower taxes and trade liberalisation. However, the opinion columns publish a wider range of views.

On 4 March 2016, Fairfax announced the closure of the BRW website, with staff and the BRW website to be redirected to a new section of The Australian Financial Review. Rich lists, which will also be published by The AFR will continue to carry the BRW branding.[2]
