Expert of the Year
WINNER: Russ Mould, AJ Bell
It’s not always an easy task for a financial expert to get his/her name in the media, let alone to be asked back for repeat appearances. So congratulations to AJ Bell investment director, Russ Mould, because nowadays he’s a mainstay on the airwaves and one of the most respected and widely quoted investment spokespeople in the industry.
With a background as an equity analyst, fund manager and journalist he has a unique blend of stock market expertise and insight into what journalists need. He writes a morning market comment every day which is extensively quoted in the city press. He also produces more detailed company analysis and is able to digest company accounts and extract the key points to help journalists with their analysis and reporting.
This expertise is also evident in his broadcast appearances, having done over 200 radio and television broadcasts over the past year. He is a regular as the markets guest on Wake Up To Money, the Today Programme, BBC News and the Ian King show on Sky News. He has also appeared on BBC Breakfast, ITV news and Channel 4 News.
