AJ Bell, one of the UK’s leading investment platforms, has brought BBC journalist and presenter Danni Hewson on board as financial analyst within its communications team. She’ll be responsible for producing analysis and commentary across a broad range of subjects including financial markets, economics and personal finance.
Danni joins after spending more than 19 years at the BBC, presenting and reporting on business news across a variety of programmes including BBC Breakfast, BBC News Channel, BBC Look North and latterly Radio 5 Live’s flagship business programme “Wake up to Money”.
Charlie Musson, head of communications at AJ Bell, comments:
“Danni is a very experienced broadcaster and business commentator who is used to unpicking what can be complex topics and explaining them clearly and in a way people can relate to. I’m sure her analysis and commentary are going to be a great help to our customers and the financial press.”
Danni Hewson, financial analyst at AJ Bell, says:
“I’m delighted to be joining such a brilliant team and I’m really excited to bring my experience and skills as a journalist and broadcaster to this award-winning investment platform. It’s strange starting a new role remotely but the pandemic has made all of us think hard about our financial security so it’s the perfect time to reach consumers. I really like that AJ Bell is committed to making investing simple and low cost. I’m looking forward to helping them reach more customers and continue to demystify the world of finance.”
