In this role, he has become one of the world’s most influential financial journalists, with bylined columns on display pages of Financial Times five days a week. He will soon take over as the head of the Financial Times’ flagship Lex column.
Authers speaks worldwide and appears frequently on major U.S. and global media, including the BBC, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, and PBS. He was recently honored by the State Street Institutional Press Awards as the UK’s Investment Journalist of the Year for his coverage of the collapse of confidence in investment theory.
His book, The Victim’s Fortune, coauthored with Richard Wolffe, earned him the prestigious Best of Knight-Bagehot Award.
Authers lives and works in New York with his wife Sara Silver, also a financial journalist, and their three children.
