McGraw Hill Financial, Inc. is an American publicly traded corporation headquartered in New York City. Its primary areas of business are financial information and analytics. It is the parent company of Standard & Poor's Ratings Services, S&P Capital IQ, Platts, J.D. Power and Associates and is the majority owner of the S&P Dow Jones Indices joint venture.

Corporate history[edit]

McGraw Hill Financial traces its history back to 1888 when James H. McGraw, co-founder of the company, purchased the American Journal of Railway Appliances. He continued to add further publications, eventually establishing The McGraw Publishing Company in 1899. His co-founder, John A. Hill, had also produced several technical and trade publications and in 1902 formed his own business, The Hill Publishing Company.

In 1909 both men, having known each other's interests, agreed upon an alliance and combined the book departments of their publishing companies into The McGraw-Hill Book Company. John Hill served as President, with James McGraw as Vice-President. 1917 saw the merger of the remaining parts of each business into The McGraw-Hill Publishing Company, Inc.[3] In 1986, McGraw-Hill bought out competitor The Economy Company, then the nation's largest publisher of educational material. The buyout made McGraw-Hill the largest educational publisher in the U.S.[4]

In 1979 McGraw-Hill Publishing Company purchased Byte magazine from its owner/publisher Virginia Williamson who then became a vice-president of McGraw-Hill.

McGraw-Hill Publishing Company, Inc became The McGraw-Hill Companies in 1995, as part of a corporate identity rebranding.[5][not in citation given]

In a 2007 strategy move, McGraw-Hill launched an online student study network, GradeGuru.com. This offering gave McGraw-Hill an opportunity to connect directly with its end users, the students. The site closed on April 29, 2012.

On October 3, 2011, McGraw-Hill announced it was selling its entire television station group to The E.W. Scripps Company for $212 million.[6] The sale was completed on December 30, 2011. It had been involved in broadcasting since 1972, when it purchased four television stations from a division of Time Inc.

On November 26, 2012, McGraw-Hill announced it was selling its entire education division to Apollo Global Management for $2.5 billion.[7] On March 22, 2013 it announced it had completed the sale and the proceeds were for $2.4 billion cash.[8]

On May 1, 2013, shareholders of McGraw-Hill voted to change the company's name to McGraw Hill Financial.[2]

Corporate organization[9][edit]

McGraw Hill Financial now organizes its businesses in four units, based upon the market they are involved in.

Books published by McGraw-Hill[edit]

2008 conference booth

McGraw-Hill maintained a general publishing division for some years, whose best known book was the (unpublished) Autobiography of Howard Hughes, a fake biography of Howard Hughes by Clifford Irving, which caused a scandal at the time.

The McGraw-Hill Building[edit]

  • The McGraw-Hill Building in New York City has received prominent attention. In April 2008, surveillance camera footage was released of Nicholas White, a production manager for BusinessWeek (then published by McGraw-Hill) who was trapped in the building's elevator for 41 hours in October 1999.[22]

Connection to the family of George W. Bush[edit]

The McGraws and the George W. Bush/George H.W. Bush family have close ties, going back generations. According to McGraw-Hill, Barbara Bush is a member of their advisory board.[23] Their California Test Bureau division has provided testing material integral to No Child Left Behind, a George W. Bush White House program.[24]

McGraw-Hill Federal Credit Union[edit]

The McGraw-Hill Federal Credit Union,[25] established in 1935, originally served employees of the McGraw-Hill companies in New York City only. The credit union moved from its location inside the McGraw-Hill building to East Windsor, New Jersey in 2005. Its accounts are insured by the National Credit Union Administration.

It provides savings, checking accounts, CDs, money-market accounts, IRAs, credit cards, auto loans, and home mortgages.

Awards[edit]

In 1999, the National Building Museum presented the McGraw-Hill Companies with its annual Honor Award for the corporation's contributions to the built environment.[26]
