About Us

Investment Compass is a partnership between Watering Hole Media and Incisive Media.


Our channel is aimed at two distinct audiences:

  • The investment professional seeking informed and intelligent comment about the markets and the big new trends in the financial services industry

All our original programmes are:

  • Rigorously independent

  • Editorially cutting edge

  • Full of character, with a strong ‘voice’

  • To the point

Our team of presenters includes:
