FT launches specialist online news and commentary service

The Financial Times is to launch Alphaville, a new digital news and commentary service aimed at finance professionals working in hedge funds, private equity and investment banking.

Features on FT Alphaville will include the “6am cut”, an email delivered to FT.com users at the listing key financial news items that will affect their day; a rolling blog offering news, analysis and commentary, written by one of the FT’s associate editors Paul Murphy; and “Markets Live,” an online daily discussion forum lead by Paul Murphy and senior stock markets correspondent Neil Hume.

FT editor said Lionel Barber said: “The '6am cut' will allow readers to pick up vital financial news either on their way to work or as soon as they get into the office and the rolling blog and online discussions will mean FT Alphaville will constantly be on top of breaking financial news, giving readers core relevant information when they need it.”
