Asset TV delivers actionable news, research and knowledge to a growing audience of investment professionals, institutional investors, bankers, wealth managers and others executives in the finance and fintech industries.
“When I began our search to fill this new senior role I knew it would be a tall order to find one person with the right combination of journalism experience, a deep understanding of financial markets, and the skills to effectively manage teams and develop alliances,” said Neil Jeffery. “Laura Keller is the perfect fit, and all of us at Asset TV are thrilled to welcome her to our leadership team.”
“I am excited to bring my years of Wall Street reporting experience and contacts to Asset TV,’’ Keller said. “I look forward to bringing our viewers insightful conversations with premier newsmakers throughout the Americas.” Keller will be responsible for broadening Asset TV’s programming, including making a geographic expansion into Canada and South America.
Keller was previously a reporter at Bloomberg News, where she covered some of the biggest investment and retail banks in the U.S. She was a frequent contributor to Bloomberg programming, including its television and radio networks and its conference series. She has also been a periodic guest of C-SPAN, CBSN, NPR, Cheddar TV, CBS Radio, and NBC. Keller has become known for her deeply reported stories about work life and culture on Wall Street, including at large banks like Bank of America Corp., Credit Suisse and Wells Fargo.
Her work has been featured in Businessweek, including on the cover. During her time as a corporate credit reporter, she regularly uncovered market-moving scoops, breaking news about Puerto Rico’s $70 billion debt conundrum, coal company Walter Energy’s $3 billion trip to bankruptcy and private equity fights over chemical firm Momentive Performance Materials. She also led the world’s coverage of nearly every turn of casino operator Caesars Entertainment’s two-year, $25 billion investor fight as it devolved into a protracted bankruptcy battle.
