For almost a hundred years (1889 – 1989), no major financial publishers entered and sustained the business operations.   In 1989, CNBC was founded in United States (and with a strong focus in finance) and Bloomberg News was launched in 1990.

It took another 20 years before Asian Private Banker and Hubbis were launched in 2009.  Both were launched in the aftermath of the 2008 Lehman Brothers collapse.  In 2015, both finews.asia and Caproasia Online were launched.
