Bloomberg Opinion announced Thursday that Niall Ferguson is joining the commentary site as a columnist.

He starts on June 1.

Ferguson is the Milbank Family Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, a senior faculty fellow of the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard, and a visiting professor at Tsinghua University in Beijing.

Prior to joining Bloomberg Opinion, Ferguson wrote a column for the Sunday Times (London) from 2015 through 2020.

Ferguson is the author of 15 books, including “The Pity of War,” “The House of Rothschild,” “Empire,” “Civilization” and “Kissinger, 1923-1968: The Idealist,” which won the Council on Foreign Relations Arthur Ross Prize. His most recent book, “The Square and the Tower,” was published in the U.S. in 2018, and was a New York Times bestseller. He is an award-making filmmaker, too, having won an international Emmy for his PBS series “The Ascent of Money.” A three-part television adaptation, “Niall Ferguson’s Networld,” aired on PBS in March 2020.

He is the founder and managing director of the New York-based advisory firm Greenmantle LLC, and a co-founding board member of Ualá, a Latin American financial technology company. Ferguson also serves as a trustee of the New York Historical Society and the London-based Centre for Policy Studies.
