I am a seasoned business and finance journalist. Originally from Germany, I have been working in the U.K. since 2013. For WELT N24, one of the major national news outlets in Germany, I reported on banking and the financial industry, fintech, manufacturing, start-ups and energy.
Besides my work as a U.K. Business Correspondent, I focused on business and finance in China, with particular emphasis on topics like RMB-internationalisation, Made in China 2025 and foreign firms in China. Prior to my job in London, I was based in Shanghai in China. As I still held a visa for China, I continued to travel the country, with three to four dispatchments to Shanghai and other cities per year.
In September 2016, I started covering corporate finance for the Wall Street Journal in London. As a News Editor, I report on U.K.-based companies as well as Continental European firms. China is supposed to remain part of my beat, with one or two dispatchments per year.
