Open and constructive relationships with media partners and their advisers are at the core of our business. Owning and or representing groups of complementary assets gives us further market influence, with our commercial partners, including publishers, film and TV companies, radio and audio partners, or online groups.

Our expertise and networks mean we can add significant value to rights portfolios in which we invest or represent. Having these portfolios together under one roof, in the hands of a group ready willing and able to invest, makes sense for existing copyright owners.

They have continued to keep us well very in- formed, and we’re delighted with what they are doing to bring John Creasey’s books to a new audience
