Spruce-up for daily business title

The Business Herald has expanded – and rolled over on its back. The move, says NZME, offers readers more news, more features and more specialist analysis.

The Monday to Thursday business section, that traditionally shares a lift out with sport, has now turned upside-down so readers can flip it to read from the front.

Throughout the week new columnists will include heavyweight industry players Harbour Asset Management director Shane Solly, Devon Funds Management’s Paul Glass, Rickey Ward and Bernard Doyle from the Investment Strategy Group at brokers JBWere and Paul Harrison & Matt Goodson from Salt Asset Management.

Business editor Liam Dann says bi-weekly columns by Mark Lister, the head of private wealth research at Craigs Investment Partners, will round out the in depth analysis from inside the markets while he says there’s more space for specialist business writers.

“For more analysis of the big stories from across the Tasman we welcome to the team Sydney based financial journalist Christopher Niesche who will provide expert commentary on the Australian financial sector with his own column,” said Dann.

Niesche is the former deputy editor of the Australian Financial Review and a former editor of The Business Herald.

Dann says The Business Herald is also re-launching specialist commentary on the agricultural sector while there’ll be more equity market news and speculation with the popular Stocktakes column that will run on a rolling basis throughout the week.

“Our absolute focus is giving our audience the information and insight they need, when they need it on the important issues,” said Dann.

Herald editor in chief, Tim Murphy, says the changes give business more valuable territory in the Herald to provide the best market intelligence and they also “demonstrate a continued investment in New Zealand’s leading newspaper”.

“Our ability to report on the financial sector is critical,” Murphy said. “By investing in Business, Liam and his team can give our readers all the news and meaningful analysis nationally and internationally that they expect, alongside the best financial journalism from around the world through our syndicated partners.”
