Specialist Insight – the parent company of Corporate Jet Investor, Helicopter Investor, Superyacht Investor and Revolution.Aero – was started from a garden shed in 2010.
Louisa Whyte, managing director, had just finished her maternity leave from her job running conferences about airlines. Her husband, Alasdair Whyte, a financial journalist who specialised in aviation (they met at their last company) was also looking for a new challenge.
The website for Corporate Jet Investor formally launched in August 2010 with the first Corporate Jet Investor One Minute Week. The first conference Corporate Jet & Helicopter Finance took place in London in January 2011. It was sponsored by six companies. All of them are still customers – and two have sponsored 10 conferences in a row. Around 150 people attended.
In 2012 we spun Helicopter Investor off as a separate business and, after our customers asked us to, we launched Superyacht Investor in 2015. We launched Revolution.Aero - our technology conference business in 2018.
