Very excited to be working on a strategic basis with Allister Heath, who is widely seen as one of the City’s most thoughtful and energetic commentators.
Since 2008 Allister has been editor of City A.M., the daily business newspaper distributed in and around London. Under Allister’s editorship, City A.M. has grown to an audited print circulation of 100,000 copies per day, making it one of the most influential voices in London’s business community. Prior to taking over at City A.M. in March 2008, he was Editor of The Business magazine. He also serves as a contributing editor of The Spectator.
His columns in City A.M. and The Daily Telegraph are widely read for their penetrating insights and provocative commentary on economic and financial affairs. Allister also appears regularly on radio and television programmes such as Newsnight, Daily Politics and the Today Programme.
Allister was awarded the 2011 Free Enterprise Award by the Institute of Economic Affairs and was voted the 2012 SIMA Financial Journalist of the Year in the City of London Wealth Management Awards. During 2012 he chaired the Tax Paxpayer’s Alliance 2020 Tax Commission, which recommended radical changes to the UK tax system. Click here to read its findings.
