LONDON: The Financial Times has launched the beta version of its Android App, available for a range of large screen tablets, including the Samsung 10.1 inch tablet and small screen Android phones.
The app is available to download for free from the Android market and is integrated into the FT.com access model whereby, upon registration, users are able to sample the content before subscribing. This ensures that customers can access FT content on a desktop computer and across multiple devices, with one login and one subscription payment.
The Financial Times and IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, have launched the 2012 FT/IFC Sustainable Finance Awards, the world’s leading awards for banks and other financial institutions that demonstrate leadership and innovation in integrating environmental, social and corporate governance considerations into their business.
Now in their seventh year, these awards reflect the growing role that the financial sector plays in addressing some of the world’s most pressing challenges, including climate change and environmental degradation, social exclusion, food security, improving access to finance and using technology to better serve the world’s poor.
This week’s FT Photography Auction, in aid of seasonal appeal partner Sightsavers, raised £48,800.
The event, at Getty Images Gallery in London on Wednesday 30th November, saw 20 stunning photographs auctioned by Sotheby’s auctioneer Adrian Biddell. Photos included works donated by celebrated photographers such as Martin Parr, Charlie Bibby, Tom Hunter, Matt Cardy, Eamonn McCabe and Jane Bown, plus a one-off print of all 2011 F1 World Championship drivers, signed by all the drivers and taken by top sports photographer Andrew Hone. Donations from bidders were matched by funding from Standard Chartered Bank and the UK Government, tripling the total. View photos from the event here
