Harriet Russell, an equities and markets journalist at Growth Company Investor, takes some time out of the busy reporting season to speak to Abchurch about her background, interests, the industry and what really makes a journo tick!
What did you want to be when you grew up?
How did you get into journalism?
Describe your role in ten words or less (if that’s possible!):
Interview companies, build relationships, write news flow, write share tips.
If I wasn’t talking to you now, what would you be doing?
My afternoons generally get reserved either for meetings (earlier), or working on my content for the monthly magazine. Right now I should be finishing the feature for the November issue!
What is the most interesting thing about your work?
Getting to meet the most important people in these companies – that are all worth multiples of millions – face to face and ask them direct questions which most people my age will never get a chance to do. I also get to travel to sites for certain companies who make the offer which is invaluable to really get a picture of the company and whether there’s a great story there or not.
How has the industry changed over the last couple of years?
