Vortex Centrum Limited was one of the first e-publishers, before the term "new media" was in common use. Launched in 1999, Vortex Centrum began with the publication of World Money Laundering Report, a journal for compliance and risk management officers in financial institutions and those who make and enforce law and regulation.

In 2002, we launched World Money Laundering Report: Online, a daily news service. In due course that became BankingInsuranceSecurities.Com which now covers dozens of vertical market areas within the financial sector, many with their own title.
