Les Echos

The business paper Les Echos was founded as a monthly newspaper in 1880 by French journalist Emile Servan-Schreiber and his brother Robert under the name of Les Echos de l’Exportation. It did not become a daily paper until 1908 when it was also given its current name. Les Echos belongs to the luxury goods conglomerate LVMH. In 2007 it launched a fee-based e-paper which was a world first.
