Publication History

SmartMoney came into existence through a cooperative initiative between Dow Jones & Company, the originators of The Wall Street Journal, and Hearst Magazines. Due to its quality content and finance-centric approach, the magazine saw quick popularity and sustained itself successfully over two decades, making an indelible mark in the realm of finance-focused publications.

In 2012, after marking its 20 years of publication, SmartMoney announced its transition into an all-digital format, following the trend toward digital media consumption. However, later in the same year, Dow Jones decided to cease the publication of SmartMoney in both print and digital formats.{{Categories}}
