Political Editor at The Financial Times
Former bureau chief in Brussels for the Financial Times
Respected Commentator in Politics
Citigroup hosted George Parker for a senior client event in NYC, where he shared his views on the Eurozone and gave an insight into the UK political landscape.
“George was great. He presented to a group of 40+ US based investors with European portfolios and moderated a conversation with Citi’s European economists. He was great at both speaking solo and leading a provocative and engaging discussion pointing out issues that resonated well with the investment community. We then took George to see a select group of clients for a more in depth one on one discussions at their offices and received very positive feedback. George is extremely knowledgeable, insightful, knows the UK politics exceptionally well and can speak to a diverse range of clients – portfolio managers and C-Suite investment strategists. He is also a real pleasure to work with, very personable and full of great anecdotes and stories to share. It was a real pleasure.”
George Parker is the Political Editor of the Financial Times having had a career covering politics at Westminster dating back to 1990 and the downfall of Margaret Thatcher.
