The Financial Times has appointed John Hughman editor of Investors Chronicle, effective immediately.

Investors Chronicle, the FT’s 150-year-old publication, is the authoritative source of fund and share tips, analysis and independent commentary to help private investors make money.

“During his tenure, John has been instrumental in Investors Chronicle’s award-winning coverage and growing its digital offering, leading the development of new mobile products and launching the award winning blog, Chronic Investor,” said Gavin Daly, Financial Publishing Director, in a statement. “His appointment comes at a time when the IC’s mission to empower investors to make informed investment decisions is of paramount importance and the demand for high quality, independent and trustworthy content has never been greater.”

Hughman, currently associate editor of Investors Chronicle, joined the Financial Times in 2008 and has covered a number of sectors, including retail, tobacco, aerospace, and technology, producing regular share tips and multimedia features across a broad range of investment themes. Prior to joining IC, he worked as a senior analyst in technology at Ernst and Young, and as an equity analyst at a London-based merchant bank.

Hughman succeeds Jonathan Eley, who after three years as editor of Investors Chronicle will take on a new post as editor of FT Money, effective immediately. Eley will be responsible for overseeing all of the FT’s personal finance coverage and editing the award-winning weekend Money section. He will also co-present the FT Money Show podcast and represent the FT at conferences.

FT Money is the FT’s personal finance supplement which provides clear, unbiased comment and analysis on personal finance products and services, helping readers to invest wisely.
