Forget Fake News: Equip Your Team with Trustworthy Global Market Intelligence

“Fake news is here to stay,” says Financial Times journalist Simon Kuper in an article from January 2019, “[and] fake stories are better constructed and more fun than real news, so they attract eyeballs and advertisers.”

There will always be a market for fake news, which makes discerning the correct information from the falsities in today’s journalism a challenge for any business. Harnessing and reacting to the current news is a high priority for companies and businesses, so it is vital that communications professionals and knowledge managers deploy accurate information and insights throughout their workforces.

How can the FT benefit your business, and provide you and your team with the information to make the right strategic decisions? Alongside our award-winning and globally-renowned journalism, the FT also provides insight and analysis which are relied on by thousands of businesses to make sound business choices quickly.

The Financial Times is part of our daily understanding of the background to the decisions we are taking.

In what ways can an FT subscription be beneficial for your team?

Equip your team with global market intelligence to make better decisions

Access to a source of high quality market intelligence has gone from being an executive benefit to a necessary education tool for all employees.

Businesses today face an unprecedented level of change: new regulations; economic and geopolitical shifts; new competition. As a senior manager, you can recognise the need to build an organisation that is alert and agile, ready to detect opportunities and threats quickly, and act accordingly. But your team needs to be equipped with the same reliable insight and analysis to help them make better informed business decisions.

We help people at all levels of an organisation to better navigate and anticipate fast-moving changes in the market. “The introduction of fastFT has been an incredible addition in our opinion,” says Maria Jané Sánchez, senior associate at CNC.

“It includes instant coverage of breaking news and allows us to respond to our clients immediately with a more informed opinion.” With this intelligence, a team’s ability to adapt is significantly strengthened, and they able to tackle challenges more easily, from a local to a global perspective.

We need to provide high quality data and intelligence for our analysts to maintain their strong reputations. The work is used around the world to aid our customers with opportunities in the commodities sector. It is vital we get the source data right.
