Globes (Hebrew: גלובס‎) is a Hebrew-language daily evening financial newspaper, the largest and the oldest of its kind in Israel. Globes was founded in the early 1980s and published in Tel Aviv, Israel. It deals with economic issues and news from the Israeli and international business worlds. The color of the paper is pink, inspired by the British Financial Times.

According to TGI 2017 media survey Globes′ market share is 4.3%.[1] Its main competitors in printed media are TheMarker of the Haaretz group and Calcalist published by Yedioth Ahronoth Group. Since 1997 Globes has an online version.

History

The daily paper founded by Haim Bar-On, the publisher of the newspaper, on the basis of a small, Haifa-based financial newspaper, in partnership with businessman Eliezer Fishman.

Following the success of Globes, it had a competitor in the form of Telegraph, which had a lower subscription price and was also printed on Saturday. Telegraph was closed after several years. A few years later, the Schocken Media Network published TheMarker economic newspaper as a competitor to Globes.

The chief editor of Globes is Naama Sikuler. Among the regular contributors to the newspaper are Yoav Karni, Tal Schneider, Eli Tsipori, Matti Golan, Stella Korin-Lieber, and Dror Foer.

Globes sections and inserts

Globes is distributed each night Sunday through Thursday, with three major supplements:

  • Titles – the main news part
  • Capital markets – stock exchange supplement

Among the supplements/ inserts:

  • G – Main weekend supplement, including regular columns by contributors such as Yoav Karni (foreign affairs), Dror Feuer, Hilik Gurfinkel (restaurant & wine critic) and Roy Yerushalmi (culinary, food history & recipes).
  • Nadlan – The weekly real-estate insert (Sundays).
  • Lady Globes – A monthly magazine insert devoted to women also sold separately on newsstands.

The publishing house is located in Rishon Lezion.

Since 1997, the paper also runs a news site. Globes was one of the first Israeli dailies to publish its contents on the World Wide Web. Globes has several serious competitors, including the Website of TheMarker and the financial economy website BizPortal. In the first decade of its operations Globes sold its content through selling access to its archive or through a paid subscription, but recently the strategy was modified and the information is open to the general public.

In the late 1990s Globes established a research department, a financial portal and a real-estate portal, which centralize and concentrate professional information centers and a series of paid services. The research department was established by Shavit Raz, the real-estate portal was established by the journalists and editors Moshe Lichtman and Noaa Wasserman-Amir, whereas the financial portal was coordinated by the executive in charge of capital markets, Ziv Segal.
