FT appoints new editor for Investors Chronicle

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, says the FT.

John HughmanGavin Daly, Financial Publishing Director, said: “During his tenure, John (pictured) 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. 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.”

Peter Dodds, Publisher for Investors Chronicle, added: “People are accessing content in a variety of ways, through print, online and via their phone or tablet. John's experience and leadership will ensure the IC continues to supply its readers with unrivalled content, across a growing number of platforms.”

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 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”.

During his 12 years at Investors Chronicle, Eley also served as its online editor, online news editor and companies writer. He led the launch of the IC website and the associated switch to a content-management system for all editorial copy.

Daly added: “Jonathan has been a driving force behind the IC’s success over the last several years and his sharp, analytical approach will be a vital addition to FT Money as it looks to further its position as an authoritative voice on personal finance.”
