The TRADE has appointed Joe McGrath as its new editor, who will join the magazine in January 2015 from Financial News.
“For the past 10 years The TRADE has been the record of note for global securities trading and we set out to recruit the highest calibre individual to steer and shape the title over the next decade. Joe fits the bill,” commented John Lee, founder of The TRADE and managing director, Europe for its parent company Asset International.
McGrath has most recently been asset management editor at Financial News and has over 10 years of investment writing experience.
His past roles include deputy editor of Money Management and editor of What Investment.
"I am excited to be joining The TRADE at a time of such considerable regulatory, technical and corporate change. The market continues to grapple with an onslaught of new regulatory headwinds while the buy side faces significantly increased client demands,” said McGrath.
"The TRADE has a unrivalled reputation for its technical understanding and thought-provoking reporting and 2015 is guaranteed to bring about further challenges for the industry. It is, therefore, an honour to be joining the team known for its journalistic quality and its close ties with the people that matter in the sector."
McGrath takes over from Chris Hall, who is stepping down as editor of The TRADE after seven years in the role.
