Paragon Launches Capital Markets Thought Leadership Platform


Wednesday, March 06, 2019   06.29AM / By Paragon


Paragon has launched ‘Counterpoint’, a multimedia platform for capital markets participants to engage with a community of peers in thought-provoking debate and discussion on the challenges and opportunities provided by disruptive technologies.


Counterpoint will host and develop a range of content including articles, blogs, videos and podcasts and will be available to industry readers across multiple channels. Markets Media will become the first media partner later this quarter and will publish the majority of all third-party contributed content.


“The world has become awash with irrelevant content so it’s vital that the capital markets have a focused venue that provides true insight and education,” said Simon Hylson-Smith, CEO of Paragon and Editor-in-chief of Counterpoint. “By providing access to a full range of potential market contributors, we’re building a unique and powerful communications platform that can catalyze real change in the years to come.”


"Genuine thought leadership is a rare commodity, so we're delighted to partner with Paragon to deliver even more quality content to Markets Media's unique capital markets and trading community across its global platforms and publications,” said David Griffiths, Managing Director of Markets Media. “True insight is not only hard to come by, but a genuine differentiator for businesses."


Peter Farley, a capital markets technology expert with over 30 years of experience in institutional finance, will be the Consulting Editor of Counterpoint. Most recently, he was Senior Capital Markets Marketing Strategist at Finastra.


“With regulatory, capital and market structural pressures on all participants, clear thinking is at a premium,” said Farley. “Counterpoint delivers this clarity of insight and debate across a range of media, enabling contributing firms to stand out and build reputations with key stakeholders.”


Counterpoint will have an ‘open access’ approach to content contributors. The content will be complimentary to readers, with a subscription or ‘pay-as-you-go’ model for contributors.
