Financial Editor of The Evening Standard

Winner of the Wincott Prize for Business Journalism (2003)

Managing Director, Evening Standard (1989-96)

Anthony Hilton is one of Britain’s leading financial journalists and is currently the Financial Editor of The Evening Standard. He began his career in journalism in 1968, when he joined Fleet Street as a trainee at The Guardian. He was City Editor of The Times between 1981 and 1983, and City Editor of The Evening Standard from 1984 to 1989. In November 1989 he became Managing Director of The Evening Standard, a post he held for six years before returning to the City Office as Editor in 1996.

Anthony has also worked for The Observer, The Daily Mail and The Sunday Express. He was for five years Editor of Accountancy Age and was also posted in New York, where for three years he was Business Correspondent for the London Sunday Times before returning to London in 1981.

Anthony is unusual in that as well as being a journalist he has had a successful business career, setting up several successful publishing and entertainment companies, serving on the boards of a management consultancy, a global media group, an insurance company, a pension fund management company and acting for six years as chief executive of the Evening Standard in the most successful period in its history.

He appears regularly on television and has filled the commentator’s slot on Channel 4’s TV Business programme for three years, as well as appearing as the expert panellist on The Stocks and Shares Show. He has also written two acclaimed books: “How to Communicate Financial Information to Employees” (1978), and “City Within a State” (1987) – a study of how the City of London really works.

Our Comment

"Few commentators are as familiar with the workings of the City as Anthony. He was the winner of the 2003 Wincott Prize for Business Journalism, and in 2014 ABI Financial Media gave him two prestigious awards: "Business Journalist of the Year" and "Outstanding Achievement in Financial Journalism". Rather than presenting with graphs or powerpoint, Anthony explains economics and finance with humour and in a way people can understand and relate to. A weekly columnist on marketing, investor relations, pensions and economics, Anthony is a sought-after conference and after-dinner speaker."
