                      EUROMONEY INSTITUTIONAL INVESTOR PLC


                          Pre Close Trading Statement


March 15 2006



Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC, the international publishing, events and
electronic information group, today issued the following update. This is made
before the Company enters its close period ahead of its interim results
announcement for the six months to March 31 2006.


While the first half is less significant than the second for the Company's
annual results, trading in the first six months of the financial year has
followed a similar pattern to 2005. Demand for the Company's events, training
and electronic information products has continued to increase, and the outlook
for advertising has gradually improved. As a result the Board expects the
increase in first half profits to be in line with market forecasts.


The trading outlook for global financial markets remains positive, and the
Company is optimistic it can make further progress in the second half in
implementing its strategy of increasing profits through a mix of organic growth,
strategic acquisitions and margin improvement.


The Company expects to announce its results for the six months to March 31 2006
on May 18 2006 and will provide a briefing for analysts, investors and press on
that day.


The Company also intends to make an announcement on Wednesday March 22 2006
setting out the impact of the adoption of International Financial Reporting
Standards, including a preliminary restatement of its 2005 financial
information.
