Megan Murphy, Head - fastFT

Megan Murphy

In early 2013, Megan Murphy was appointed head of fastFT, a new service from the Financial Times that provides market-moving news and views, 24-hours a day.

Tailored for the active news consumer, fastFT delivers up-to-the-minute reporting and comment in short, sharp and informed dispatches – giving FT readers the edge they expect and the agenda-setting analysis they rely on. It expands and deepens the FT’s existing content offering by adding a live and dynamic layer of news and commentary.

In her current role, Murphy is responsible for a team of eight reporters based in London, New York and Hong Kong.

Murphy joined the Financial Times in December 2007 as the law courts correspondent and went on to become the investment banking correspondent in June 2009, specialising in finance and banking, with a particular focus on global banks.

Prior to joining the FT, Murphy covered legal affairs and global financial regulation at Bloomberg News in London. She started her career as a securities lawyer at Wilson, Sonsini, Goodrich & Rosati in Palo Alto, CA.

Murphy graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Yale University and holds master’s degrees from Columbia School of Journalism and Northwestern University School of Law.
