KNEIP acquires Patrimoine TV

Luxembourg/Paris - 27 August 2010

KNEIP, a leading independent service provider to the global asset management industry, today announced the acquisition of Patrimoine TV, the premier online video producer dedicated to the financial industry. This acquisition comes shortly after the repurchase of KNEIP’s shares from 3i, and supports KNEIP’s ongoing growth strategy in developing video and web TV services for the financial industry.

The addition of Patrimoine TV will enable KNEIP to bring a new dimension to their existing video production capabilities and provide a web TV platform for their clients. CEO of Patrimoine TV Bogdan Kowal stated: “Our partnership with KNEIP will allow us to expand our capabilities and develop new markets, while sharing a common vision of quality, transparency, and effective communication.”

Patrimoine TV will be located at KNEIP’s office in the Palais Brongniart in Paris. Patrimoine TV’s team is familiar with this renowned location, as for several years they have used La Cote Bleue’s (a KNEIP company) state-of-the-art video production facilities. Patrimoine TV has been producing audiovisual products for asset managers, insurance companies, independent financial advisors, and end investors since 2006.

Bob Kneip, founder and CEO of KNEIP said of the acquisition: “Enhanced communications with investors has become a top consideration for asset managers worldwide. As such, KNEIP is focused on providing asset managers a choice of channels to help them target their domestic and international markets efficiently and cost-effectively. Having established our video production through the acquisition of La Cote Bleue in 2009, the addition of Patrimoine TV is a natural progression of our business offering.”
