Money Management 50th Anniversary Special

Published by Money Management | Mar 23, 2012

To celebrate five decades bringing the latest personal finance news and features to our readers, we have produced our 50th anniversary special edition.

In the same year that Money Management was launched, the Sunday Times became the first national newspaper to publish a colour supplement; Ford Motor Company launched its Cortina car for £573; and the BBC screened the first episode of the iconic soap, Steptoe & Son.

Unfortunately we do not have any issues of the magazine going back to its launch date; in fact we only have a few copies from one year of its first decade, 1967 when the annual subscription was £2.2 shillings.

And the magazine looked so completely different in the 60s as to be unrecognisable from what it has become today. At launch, the magazine was called The Unitholder, was a 20 page booklet with a part time editor, and covered mainly unit trusts. The unit linked life industry was still in its infancy, Abbey Life having launched in 1961 and Hambro Life still to come in 1971.

It is surprising, though, looking back through the archived copies of the magazine, how the subjects that are occupying the collected minds of today’s markets were also prevalent 50 years ago.

We hope you enjoy reading about the rich history of Money Management and the market we have been covering for the past 50 years. And we hope to continue writing about it for at least the next 50 years to come.
