Smart Property Investment growth helps secure BRW accolade

By Phillip Tarrant 25 October 2012 | 1 minute read

The ongoing development of Smart Property Investment has helped parent group Momentum Media secure a top half position in the prestigious BRW Fast 100 Ranking.

Momentum Media ranked in 49th position, registering an average three year growth rate of 68.26 per cent. The 2012 result was up from the previous year’s 59th postion, highlighting the continued strong growth of the business.

The benchmark ranking, which acknowledges consistent and sustainable business growth, reaffirms Momentum Media as one of the fastest growing publishing and media services businesses in Australia.

Momentum Media, including its publishing arm Sterling Publishing, focuses on vertical markets including mortgage and finance broking, mortgage lending, property investment and real estate as well as the financial planning, institutional investment and funds management sectors.

While much of the company’s continued success has been the result of the ongoing organic growth and development of titles Smart Property InvestmentThe Adviser and Real Estate Business, the past 12 months have also seen Sterling Publishing achieve strong growth via acquisition.

According to Alex Whitlock, group publisher of Sterling Publishing, the company’s success is a reflection of its commitment to building a genuinely vertical publishing house.

“Sterling Publishing has established strong brands and distribution channels across key industry sectors and engages stakeholders using a range of reader-focused platforms including print, digital, broadcast, tablet and events.

“The recent acquisition of the Morningstar Media assets highlights our commitment to grow the business with the addition of market leading products that complement our home-grown titles."
