The Financial Times has appointed Patrick Jenkins as financial editor and  assistant editor, effective Jan. 1.

In his new role Jenkins will oversee and  shape the FT’s broader financial coverage, with a focus on financial services  and investment. He will lead a team of journalists globally and work closely  with editors in the markets, Lex, FT Money and FTfm teams.

“Patrick has led our banking coverage over the  past four years and forged a world-beating team of financial services  journalists,” said editor Lionel Barber in a statement. “He and his colleagues have demonstrated an enviable record of  breaking news, consistently delivering front page stories on issues at the heart  of our readers’ interests. His leadership skills and experience will be  invaluable as we continue to invest in core beats and develop our digital  strategy.”

Jenkins will contribute to comment and analysis and continue to write for the Inside Business column. He will work closely with the investigations team on developing the  FT’s deep, agenda-setting journalism in the financial services field.

Sarah  Gordon takes over the pan-regional banking beat as European business editor and  associate editor from January.
