About Paul Amery

I’m a freelance financial journalist, specialising in investment, financial indices, index-based investing, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), derivatives, securities finance and regulation.

Prior to becoming a journalist, I had a 20-year career as a fund manager, trader and private investor. I am professionally qualified in investment analysis and can write clearly and concisely on a range of topics.

I am also a practised public speaker and moderator.

I was voted journalist of the year at the 2012 and 2016 State Street institutional press awards (2012 in the investment category and 2016 in the investor services and technology category). I was shortlisted in several awards categories in 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2015.

I have written for a wide range of publications, including the Financial Times, Financial News, the TradeETF.comMoney WeekGlobal Custodian, Prospect and Campden FB.

I also undertake corporate and contracting work, including research projects, white papers and hosting/moderating conferences and panels.
