The Financial Times will tomorrow unveil a new look to its FT Money supplement, featuring new sections and a refreshed design to enhance its award-winning content.
FT Money is the Financial Times’ personal finance supplement, providing clear, unbiased comment and analysis on personal finance products and services to help people save and invest wisely. This week, it was named Best Consumer Financial Title in the Santander Media Award.
The refreshed section will provide readers with insightful and engaging coverage, with a stronger focus on investment issues; equipping them with the knowledge and confidence to manage their wealth just as sweeping regulatory changes put professional financial advice beyond the reach of many investors.
New content features include:
‘Market Insight’, where invited guest contributors provide thought-provoking and sometimes controversial commentary;
Regular features, investigations and interviews, starting with a look at the many ways in which HMRC is cracking down on tax fraud;
A new monthly column by John Redwood, using a portfolio of passive, index-tracking vehicles to gain exposure to key themes;
‘Best of the Investors Chronicle’, share trading ideas from the UK’s oldest and most respected specialist investment publication.
‘How to’ guide, offering practical advice on subjects ranging from complaining about a provider to speculating on the weather;
‘Armchair Alphaville’, a selection of the week’s best postings from the FT’s popular and award-winning markets and companies blog.
Jonathan Eley, who was recently appointed editor of FT Money, said, “FT Money is an independent and trustworthy source of news and analysis on a variety of personal finance topics. The redesign will sharpen our focus on the issues that really matter to our readers – such as tax planning, saving for children, moving up the housing ladder and retirement – and help them get the big financial decisions right.”
Separately, Norma Cohen has joined the FT Money team as demographics correspondent. A distinguished FT journalist and most recently an economics reporter, Cohen will offer FT Weekend readers insightful commentary on big-picture issues including demographics, economic and social policy and long-term investment returns.
