Patrick Jenkins

Deputy Editor, The Financial Times

Patrick Jenkins has been Deputy Editor of the Financial Times since January 2020. Before that, he spent 20 years at the FT in a range of roles – from personal finance reporter to financial editor via a stint as a correspondent in Germany. He grew up in modest circumstances in south Wales, attending a state comprehensive and a provincial university before finding himself in day-to-day contact with the financial elite. Drawing on those experiences, he recently founded, and now chairs, the FT Financial Literacy and Inclusion Campaign, a registered charity that promotes and campaigns for basic finance education for all.
