Information business bought by Centaur

Business information and events group Centaur Media has acquired Investment Platforms (IPL), a specialist information business in the retail financial services sector, for £6.3m.

IPL was founded three years ago by vendor Holly Mackay, who had previously developed and managed investment platforms for Merrill Lynch and Norwich Union in Australia, before being appointed UK director of Santander's Allfunds Bank in 2005.
