Dear friends and readers of Alphaville,

For 14 years now, we have enjoyed a committed relationship with you. We have brought you wonks and stonks, trolls and lols, insights and in-fights, while you have brought us cutting incisive comments and a reason to get out of bed in the morning (or if not, at least to flip open our laptops).

But now, it is time for a new chapter. We are writing this post to tell you that although our commitment to your remains as strong as ever, we are deplatforming ourselves.

No don’t worry! We don’t mean it in that way. But as of today, we have a new website address and is no longer (if you type that in, you’ll get redirected). Instead, you will find us on the main FT website, and our new URL will be

We hope you’ll understand and will respect this decision. We promise not to rub our new website address in your faces, or to send you inappropriate messages late at night.

We are, however, having a little makeover too (we can’t risk bumping into you in the supermarket without looking a little better than we did before). So over the next few months, you might notice our page getting some nips and tucks. And we will be relaunching it officially in the New Year.

Improved taglines for our constantly evolving offering are currently being welcomed so do let your creative juices flow in the comments section. Here are some of the early front runners . . . 

  • For a different perspective on finance, markets, and the wider world

  • A blog for financial markets professionals

  • Markets and finance on the wild side

  • Peace, love, and absolute returns

  • The revolution will not be securitised

  • The trusted destination for the weird, the wonderful, and the wonkish

Or, you could just vote for one of these -- although we cannot promise any kind of democratic process. This is 2020 after all.

Forever yours faithfully,

FT Alphaville.
