FT launches “Unhedged” newsletter about Wall Street
The Financial Times launched “Unhedged,” a weekday newsletter covering the world of markets and finance.
It is compiled by the FT’s U.S. finance editor Robert Armstrong.
“Wall Street is the symbolic center of capitalism the world over,” said FT U.S. managing editor Peter Spiegel. “Its influence on the global economy and business mean it’s of crucial interest to the FT’s American audience. ‘Unhedged’ will bridge a gap in fast-paced finance news to give our readers the daily insights they need to stay ahead.”
Armstrong earned a PhD in philosophy and worked as an analyst at a hedge fund before switching to journalism. At the FT, he has edited the Lex column, served as chief editorial writer, and reported on Wall Street banks and writes a regular men’s style column.
Armstrong added, “The problem facing finance professionals is not too little information — it’s too much information. ‘Unhedged’ cuts through the noise, analyzing the few market and industry trends that really matter, leveraging the FT’s unparalleled network of correspondents and access to top sources worldwide. It will make you smarter, every day.”
