Financial Times: A reference point for global business

A 'FT' logo sits on the side of the Financial Times headquarters in London, on July 23, 2015The Financial Times, whose sale to Japanese group Nikkei was announced Thursday, is the go-to paper for the business world which has harnessed the Internet to become a truly international newspaper.

An unashamed champion of free markets and a supporter of the European Union, the FT is known for the reliability of its news and its insightful analysis — even if it has rowed back on previous calls for Britain to adopt the euro.
