FT Editorial Code

Our commitment

It is fundamental to the integrity and success of the Financial Times (FT) that we uphold the highest possible standards of ethical and professional journalism, and that we are seen to do so.

The benchmark for the FT’s journalistic practices is set by our FT Editorial Code. Compliance with the code is an obligation for all FT editorial staff.

Our actions

If you wish to request a clarification or correction, please email corrections@ft.com.

If you wish to make a complaint about any of our editorial content or journalistic activity, please contact editor@ft.com.

Where any complaint under the FT Editorial Code is unable to be resolved by FT’s senior editors, the Complaints Commissioner will review the matter and recommend any appropriate redress.

In September 2014 the Financial Times Limited (FT) appointed Greg Callus as its editorial Complaints Commissioner. The role will ensure a continued means of dealing with reader complaints following the closure of the UK Press Complaints Commission. His remit is to support the FT’s existing framework for handling editorial complaints, independent of the editor.
