LONDON: 2 July 2013: The Financial Times has redesigned its YouTube page by simplifying content discovery for viewers through a clean, highly-visual, immersive experience, demonstrating the full-breadth of Financial Times video content.

New features include a central video carousel that showcases three main videos and six playlists highlighting core FT topics such as world news, markets, tech, business and finance, and life and arts.

Comprised of a number of dedicated producers, the FT’s video team aims to give voice to the individuals behind the big global stories in business, politics and finance, as well as culture and lifestyle, through high-level analysis and reportage tailored to the FT’s global audience.

The FT’s global head of video, Veronica Kan-Dapaah, said: “The Financial Times publishes high quality video journalism everyday, and the discoverable and shareable nature of YouTube makes it an ideal second home for FT video content.”

Financial Times videos are free to view on YouTube, on FT.com and through our award-winning apps.
