Setting up a Global News Agency

Question posted by Raj Valley, on behalf of Raj Valley in W9

I am considering starting up a news agency, main market to be UK/ USA/ Germany / Italy to begin with. From research I have done it would be beneficial to have a holding company that 'owns' these companies. Would you be able to advise on this. The company would generate content (digital assets) to be sold globally across various platforms (newspaper/ web/ magazines etc). I want to get the legal/business structure clear before starting on the day to day operations.

Thank You
