L’Officiel and GEM Group Launch L’Officiel Fund, a Unique and Disruptive Investment Approach

Jaa

L’Officiel (owned by Jalou Media Group) and GEM Group (New York) are pleased to announce the launch of the L’Officiel Fund, a US $ 50 million investment fund which aims to promote emerging brands and develop their engagement with luxury lifestyle consumers.

The launch of the L’Officiel Fund is the second phase of a partnership which began in October of this year when Jalou Media Group and GEM Group joined together to launch L’Officiel USA Inc, encompassing both a digital platform, lofficielusa.com—which went live in late October—and L’Officiel USA, a bi-monthly print edition which will be on newsstands beginning in March of 2018.

CREATING VALUE FOR ENTERPRISES IN THE LIFESTYLE SECTOR IN DEVELOPMENT

Working with emerging brands that understand the value of targeted marketing, but do not have the capital to access premium advertising channels, the Fund will provide brands with investment capital to be spent on marketing efforts. Supplementing this, L’Officiel will provide the selected brands with privileged access to L’Officiel’s global network of digital and print publishing assets in 70 countries. Brands will benefit from L’Officiel’s print and digital advertising campaigns, and value-added marketing services including branded content, video production, social media activation, event creation, and experiential marketing, among other services.

A UNIQUE AND DISRUPTIVE INVESTMENT FUND

“With its unique approach to content creation—from disruptive methods of storytelling to our centralized global digital platform—we can provide the Fund’s brands with new and more dynamic resources, allowing them to break out of traditional media models and instead become innovators in the field” notes Benjamin Eymere, CEO of Jalou Media Group.

“The purpose of the Fund is to provide these emerging brands,” Anthony Romano, L’Officiel Fund’s Managing Director, highlights, “with the tools they need to sustain growth. We want to supply these brands with the right resources to help them succeed in the competitive global market.”

While the Fund will primarily target global listed companies, it will allocate 25% of its capital to private businesses as well.

Clothesource Report Shows Retail Sales Aren’t Falling or Moving Online: Management’s Let Itself Get Misguided20.9.2018 20:19Tiedote

According to a new Clothesource report, “The Emperors’ Clothes” retail sales aren’t falling, and they’re not leaving physical stores. Both the UK’s Office of National Statistics and the US Bureau of the Census report higher retail sales than ever – with sales in physical stores still growing every year. Retailers just need to rely on their own customer understanding, recapture their self-confidence, and rediscover their traditional frugality. Among recent front-page stories have been Sears in the US hinting it’s about to go under and profits at Britain’s John Lewis falling 99%. But the well run clothing retailers are prospering. Primark goes from strength to strength: the biggest clothing specialists on either side of the Atlantic (Inditex and TJX) have just upped their sales and profit forecasts. So it’s not about consumer purchasing: The main problem lies with management, says Clothesource CEO Mike Flanagan in a new report “The Emperors’ Clothes”. They’ve lost touch with their custom
