Financial Times cuts through noise on global trade with new editorial team, content hub and newsletter

21 October 2019: The Financial Times is today launching Trade Secrets, a newsletter and content hub staffed by a team of award-winning journalists that will explore the most important issues driving globalisation. 

The team of journalists, led by FT deputy editor Roula Khalaf, includes Trade Secrets editor Alice Ross and writers Alan Beattie in Brussels and James Politi in Washington DC. They will be supported by FT correspondents in Asia. 

“The reshaping of the world’s silk roads will have big implications for the future of business and global trade,” said Khalaf. “Creating a new dedicated trade team will allow the FT to dig deeper and produce more detailed, insightful reporting and analysis on the issues that matter to our readers.” 

The newsletter will be a must-read for law firms, regulators, institutional investors, companies competing internationally, academics and anyone who wants to look past the noise and read informed analysis on important trends in globalisation. It will focus not only on official negotiations, disputes and the people driving them, but also on how companies, technologies and international investment are shaping the world economy.

The newsletter will land in readers’ inboxes by 11:00am UK time Monday through Thursday. Readers can visit the Trade Secrets hub for additional insights and analysis. 

Trade Secrets is supported by Refinitiv.
