FT Magazine is a supplement to the weekend edition of the Financial Times newspaper. It is published on Saturdays and covers world events, politics and the arts. It is only included with the UK and Ireland edition of the Financial Times; however, articles from it are also printed in sections of the USA edition of the Financial Times, e.g. the Lunch with the FT. The Financial Times (FT) is an English-language international daily newspaper owned by Japanese company Nikkei, Inc., headquartered in London, with a special emphasis on business and economic news.
The paper was founded in 1888 by James Sheridan and Horatio Bottomley, and merged in 1945 with its closest rival, the Financial News (which had been founded in 1884). The Financial Times has a record paying readership of one million, three-quarters of which are digital subscriptions (as of April 2019). On 23 July 2015, Nikkei Inc. agreed to buy the Financial Times from Pearson for £844m ($1.32 billion) and the acquisition was completed on 30 November 2015.
