24 September 2020: The Financial Times has been named the most trustworthy media brand in the 2020 Global Business Influencers survey (GBI) from Ipsos. The FT was also named Europe’s leading business publication for the fifth year running. 

GBI is a global syndicated media and insight survey tracking the media, business, financial, luxury and travel habits of the most senior global business executives, representing the top 0.5% or 2.5 million of the working population. 

“This has been an extraordinary year for news. Demand for quality and trustworthy information has soared during the coronavirus pandemic as leaders try to make sense of the disruption and find momentum in a vastly changed world. At the FT we remain as committed as ever to our mission of agenda-setting, independent journalism, remaining a trusted guide to the new normal," said Enzo Diliberto, FT's global insight director.
