George Parker

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. He is the longest-serving political editor of any daily national newspaper and took on his current role in 2007; prior to that he was the FT’s bureau chief in Brussels, heading the paper’s EU coverage. His expertise in European and British politics makes him ideally placed to talk about Brexit as well as the interaction between politics, business and finance.

George is a regular broadcaster, speaker and moderator. He is a presenter of Radio 4’s Week in Westminster and is a regular pundit, appearing on programmes including the Today Programme, the Westminster Hour and the Andrew Marr show. In 2010 he was chairman of the parliamentary press gallery.
