Gavin Serkin

Founder & Managing Editor, New Markets Media & Intelligence

A prominent finance writer and commentator, Gavin’s book debut, Frontier: Exploring the Top Ten Emerging Markets of Tomorrow (Bloomberg/Wiley), was acclaimed as a “must read” by The Financial Times.

His latest, Chain Reaction – How Blockchain Will Transform the Developing World (Macmillan), was described as “the perfect way to step beyond the clichés about blockchain and explore the full range of possibilities in a rich and compelling way” by the BBC’s Tim Harford.

Gavin’s work leading Bloomberg’s teams of journalists uncovering derivatives that triggered the global financial crisis won him the Society of American Business Editors & Writers’ Best in Business Award and the Society of Professional Journalists’ Deadline Club Award. Subsequently creating and leading Bloomberg’s emerging markets team, Gavin founded New Markets Media & Intelligence in 2015 to help drive responsible investment and reporting in emerging, frontier and technology markets through innovative stakeholder and media engagement.

He has driven editorial content and thought leadership at leading institutions including the United Nations, the World Bank’s IFC, the Institute of International Finance, the Africa Finance Corporation, Singapore’s Prime Minister and President, the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times, Reuters, Dubai International Finance Centre, Nasdaq and Amundi.

Gavin is a frequent speaker and guest lecturer on emerging and frontier markets including at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management and Syracuse University
