Breaking News

Much of the FT’s news and features output will be authored by writers briefed to cover particular beats across different geographies and timezones. However, the FT is keen to ensure it remains competitive with rival news organisations that are sometimes better staffed.

The Newsdesk

The FT’s daily news priorities are set by its Main newsdesk. Online and print news are properly coordinated across different desks and delivered in a timely manner according to the demands set by the FT’s editor of the day.

Companies Desk

If the FT has any constant unique selling point, it has been its fundamental focus on covering corporate and markets news. The FT’s corporate coverage is unrecognisable from what it was two decades ago. No longer does it seek to act as a UK-focused newspaper of record for mundane FTSE 100 results and trading announcements.

Opinion & Analysis Desk

The FT’s opinion section is comprised of several fiefdoms that come together as a “commentariat” to deliver the strands of leaders, comment and extended analysis pieces in print and online, as commissioned and edited by these discrete teams.
