Wall Street Journal reporter Samuel Rubenfeld has been hired to be an editor of the Kharon Brief, which reports on global security.
Rubenfeld worked for almost 10 years at The Journal, spending the majority of his time there reporting on issues of illicit finance with a special focus on sanctions, money laundering, foreign bribery, terrorism finance and whistleblowers.
He wrote for WSJ’s Risk & Compliance Journal and previously for the Corruption Currents blog.
Rubenfeld will drive investigative research and insightful analysis related to every headline security issue in the world. He will be based in New York.
“These important stories, which involve far-flung actors conducting potentially illicit business around the world, deserve greater attention,” Rubenfeld said. “I am excited to join this team and contribute to this important work.”
