A Fusion Transaction: GFC Media Group global capital market events business receives investment from Horizon Capital

Updated: Feb 28

GFC Media Group is a leading capital markets events business, focused on serving a blue-chip client base of corporates, investors and finance professionals within high growth markets.

GFC provides strong value to >8,000 attendees and >300 corporates across its five leading events, helping clients achieve ROI through maintaining market positioning and presence, networking and meeting customers, and remaining informed on market developments. The market that GFC operates in is highly fragmented and driven by strong tailwinds with key market participants having a strong, ongoing need to attend.

GFC has delivered impressive organic growth, underpinned by its reputation for high quality conferences, access to senior decision makers in global financial institutions, curated 1-2-1 meetings with sector leading NPS and high retention. The partnership with Horizon will enable GFC to continue to build on its strong momentum and supplement further organic growth with acquisitions.

This is an exciting time for GFC, our clients and colleagues. GFC has grown in recent years thanks to the hard work of work of our colleagues and the support of our clients, and we look forward to continuing to build on that success. We are delighted to be partnering with Horizon Capital who have a strong track record in supporting companies such as ours to accelerate both organic and acquisitive growth.
