Daniel is a highly regarded journalist with over a decade of experience writing and editing news, comments, and deeper analysis features. He started out writing a blog and various articles on a freelance basis for different U.K. news organizations. A few years later, the Financial Times awarded him with a bursary to study a master's in journalism.

Following the completion of his course, Daniel started working for the FT in its London office. At first, he reported on issues affecting financial advisors, including investments, pensions, insurance, mortgages, small business finance, and regulation. Several promotions later, he specialized in quoted companies, writing news, features, blogs, comment pieces, and stock tips on U.K., U.S., and European equities, as well as producing video content and podcasts.

Just over two years ago, Daniel decided to move away from London. Since then, he has continued to write for his old employers on a freelance basis, together with several other publications, both at home and abroad.

Daniel takes great pride in informing the public and shepherding investors through volatile financial markets. He spends hours each day studying global structural drivers, valuations, and the financial health of companies across a range of different sectors.


Daniel received his master’s degree in journalism at the London College of Communication (funded by the Financial Times) and his bachelor’s degree in film at the University of Kent.

Quote from Daniel Liberto

"I am a passionate journalist who takes great pride in accurately informing the public about issues that concern it. For me, it is important to always keep on top of my area of specialization and translate complicated information into easily digestible copy that is understandable to both expert and novice investors."
