Bloomberg View announced Wednesday that Matt Levine is joining the opinion and analysis site as a columnist covering finance, Wall Street and the broader business world.

Levine was formerly a financial columnist with Dealbreaker.

“We’re excited to have Matt join us and to add his formidable and intimate understanding of financial markets to the strengths of our existing coverage,” said David Shipley, the executive editor of Bloomberg View, in a statement. “Matt is fast, insightful and has a distinct and well-founded point of view, all of which will continue to be hallmarks of our coverage.”

Levine has been writing about economics and finance at Dealbreaker since 2011, covering the deals, scandals, complexities and personalities of the financial services industry. He has written about topics ranging from the Facebook IPO and the AIG bailout to SEC insider trading investigations, mergers and acquisitions, and derivatives in all shapes and sizes.

Levine’s analysis of JPMorgan’s “London Whale” debacle was featured in the Columbia Journalism Review’s Best Business Writing 2013. He has also written for the Wall Street Journal, CNN.com, and The Billfold, and wrote the semi-regular “Ask a Banker” column for NPR’s Planet Money blog.

Before becoming a blogger, Levine spent four years as an investment banker at Goldman Sachs, structuring and marketing corporate equity derivatives. He was previously a mergers & acquisitions lawyer and a high school Latin teacher. He is a graduate of Harvard and Yale Law School.
