Barron’s hires Cane as news and features editor
Jeffrey Cane has been hired by Barron’s as its news and features editor.
He starts Oct. 25.
His job will include editing stories across all platforms, helping to integrate print and digital editorial operations, and expanding investigative and storytelling capabilities.
Cane comes from The New York Times, where he was the editor overseeing finance, banking, hedge funds and the markets until last month. At The Times, he helped lead the expansion of DealBook from a daily newsletter to an online news platform. An experienced hand when it comes to financial storytelling, Cane has worked in both digital and print, on breaking news and long-form narratives.
He supervised The Times’ coverage of the collapse of MF Global and the rise of non-mortgage housing finance. And he ran the series on the boom in subprime auto lending and on Wall Street’s hiring of the sons and daughters of China’s elite.
Previously, Cane has been a stock market editor for Dow Jones, a commentary editor and legal editor for Reuters and a news editor for the web site of Condé Nast Portfolio.
