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, a post he has held since 2007. Previously he was the FT’s bureau chief in Brussels, giving him a rare insight from both the EU and Westminster perspective into the forces and personalities shaping Brexit.

George has covered some of the most dramatic events in recent British politics, including the financial crash of 2008, the coalition government, the Scottish referendum, the EU Brexit referendum and the self-imposed minority government of Theresa May.

His authority on a range of subjects – notably British politics and Brexit – has made him a sought after commentator. He is a regular presenter of Radio 4’s Week in Westminster and has appeared on programmes including BBC1’s Andrew Marr show and R4’s Today programme.

George is a regular speaker and moderator of events, including a recent FT Brexit summit featuring Tony Blair and in a crucial Brexit press conference, in which Theresa May was forced to deny having “George Parker on my mind”.
