Wigglesworth to become FT global finance correspondent
Robin Wigglesworth, the U.S. markets editor for the Financial Times, is moving to Norway this summer to become the paper’s global finance correspondent.
On Twitter, Wigglesworth wrote, “I’ll still be writing about much of the same stuff, but it will be more of a roaming, big-picture job, with a focus on ‘the future of finance.'”
Wigglesworth has been based in New York and has been in charge of the FT’s coverage of financial markets and asset management across the Americas. Before that he was the FT’s capital markets correspondent, and Gulf correspondent. He was also deputy head of FastFT in 2014 and 2015.
He has been at the FT since June 2008. Before that, he spent two years with Bloomberg News as its Nordic economics and politics correspondent.
He’s a graduate of City University in London.
