30th May 2019

Andrew Edgecliffe-Johnson is US business editor of the Financial Times. In his 21 years with the FT on both sides of the Atlantic, he has covered a range of editorial and reporting roles, including eight years as their global media editor. With an international network of journalists covering every time zone, it has a paid readership of over 1m with almost 80% online. In this in-depth interview, Andrew describes how he handles the “five speeds” of news from breaking stories to long reads, reveals the lesser-reported political events causing CEOs most concern, and explains why part of the FT’s job is to look for “the grit in the oyster” when it comes to predicting financial disasters.
