Welcome to ianfraser.org, the website of journalist, blogger and broadcaster Ian Fraser. I write about business, finance, politics and economics for publishers including Financial Times, BBC News, The Sunday Times, The Herald/Sunday Herald, Thomson Reuters and Dow Jones. I am currently writing a book about Royal Bank of Scotland/NatWest, which is to be published by Birlinn in August 2013.
Recent projects have included researching and helping to produce documentary programs about the banking and financial crisis for the BBC. These have included RBS: Inside The Bank That Ran Out of Money, shown on BBC1 and BBC2 in autumn 2011, and shortlisted for a BAFTA award.
I’m available for freelance assignments including research, writing, commissioning and editing. Sectors covered include banking, financial markets, investment management, economics, globalization, corporate finance, mergers & acquisitions, energy and renewables. Strengths include excellent contacts in business and finance and the ability to make complex subjects accessible to a general audience.
Journalism, blogging, broadcasting and book-writing are my main focus, but I can also provide services including web content creation, ghost-writing and media training. In 2010-12 I have been interviewed about the banking and economic crisis by BBC News, BBC World Service, BBC World News TV, BBC Newsnight Scotland, BBC Radio 5 Live, Radio New Zealand, Talk Nation Radio (US), The Keiser Report, STV News and a number of other broadcasters
