Production of the MagazineThe current basis of distribution of the magazine is on a full risk, outsourced basis through an external publisher. The total production cost (editorial, printing and postage) is in the order of R150 000 per issue, which is just under R1 million p.a. for six issues.
The full production costs are funded by the publisher and offset with advertising revenue. No production costs are funded from FPI membership revenue. Since the publisher has experienced reduced advertising support over the last two years for a number of reasons, it has become increasingly difficult to cover the full production costs.
Future of the MagazineYou would have recently received your June/July copy of the magazine. This August/September issue will be the third issue for 2011, the digital copy can be downloaded below. We are currently planning the fourth and final 2011 issue which will be October/November issue to be sent to you by the end of November/early in December.
As a temporary measure, during 2012, a printed version of the magazine will be made available to you FREE OF CHARGE based on a subscription basis. A digital copy will be sent to all members and all current and future issues made available on the FPI website.
In addition, based on the feedback received from members, the magazine will continue to be produced on an alternate monthly basis. We will however be reviewing the content to provide you with specialised content in the various financial planning disciplines and other topics. We will also be investigating reduced subscriptions to a number of other magazines in 2012 and will communicate further in this regard.
