Financial Times looks Beyond Brics

Today the Financial Times launches beyondbrics, a new interactive hub on FT.com dedicated to covering the emerging markets at www.ft.com/beyond-brics. The launch, supported by asset management firm Robeco, is part of a broader Financial Times strategy to invest in its coverage of the global story and new emerging markets.

The increased editorial coverage of Latin America, Russia and Eastern Europe, China, India and Brazil follows a series of senior editorial appointments including:

  • Stefan Wagstyl, emerging markets editor

  • John-Paul Rathbone, Latin America editor

  • Josh Noble, emerging markets writer

  • Alexandra Stevenson, emerging markets reporter

Lionel Barber, editor of the Financial Times, said: “It is clear that the security and recovery of the global economy depends on the growth of emerging economies. As a leader in the coverage of the global financial crisis, the FT will continue to tell the next chapter in the global story”.

As well as fast expert analysis, and the most pertinent information about what is really happening inside the countries covered, beyondbrics will also feature video interviews and comment pieces by respected outside commentators. By combining a blog, a news feed and data section, the hub will both break and analyse news, and is intended to become essential reading for all those interested the rebalancing of the global financial order.
