Clive Horwood will be joining OMFIF, the global forum for economic policy-makers and financial markets, as its managing editor and deputy chief executive.
His new role begins Nov. 9.
Recently, Horwood was the longest serving editor at Euromoney, where he edited the leading trade title for global banking from 2005 to 2020. During that time he helped form the narrative for banks’ response to the 2008 financial crisis.
He also led the coverage of international capital markets, environmental, social and governance-geared investing and digital banking, an experience which will be valuable at his new job as well.
Horwood joined Euromoney in 1993, editing his first title, International Bond Investor, in 1995. He then became deputy editor of Euroweek, now Global Capital, and, was launch editor of Credit magazine. Prior to reverting back to Euromoney, he edited derivatives publication Risk.
He is also credited with successfully relaunching Asiamoney in 2017.
David Marsh, co-founder and chairman of OMFIF, said:
“Clive will make a big difference. He will be responsible for all OMFIF content across its platforms, working with our outstanding economists, researchers and advisers to strengthen our independent coverage in the triangle of finance, politics and technology. He will be a key part of the executive team leading strategic expansion in initiatives already deeply related to OMFIF’s core businesses such as capital markets and wealth management.”
“OMFIF is a unique proposition in financial markets. It has extraordinary reach and influence. Its content – through its institutes, events, publications and research – sets agendas and constructively brings together the public and private sectors. This will grow in importance as global finance emerges from the Covid crisis. We have far-reaching plans to broaden and deepen OMFIF’s international remit. I can’t wait to work with my new colleagues.”
