The publishing company behind ifa and its sister titles has named James Mitchell as the new editor for wealth and wellness.
Prior to taking up the position, Mr Mitchell was managing editor of Momentum Media’s mortgages titles, including Mortgage Business and award-winning publication The Adviser. He has over seven years’ experience as a financial journalist and has worked across several of Momentum’s titles, including InvestorDaily, Accountants Daily, Real Estate Business, Smart Property Investment, Wellness Daily, and has contributed to ifa in previous years.
In addition to his work at Momentum Media, Mr Mitchell has had his work published by Mergermarket, The Financial Times, FST Media and The Daily Telegraph.
His appointment as editor follows the departure of the long-serving managing editor Aleks Vickovich, who left the business on 10 August after years of providing independent and non-aligned advisers with a voice in the media.
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Mitchell said he is eager to advance the conversations already emerging in the financial advice sector in the wake of the royal commission and other changes currently influencing the industry.
“In the last year alone we’ve seen immense changes in the financial advice space, and as the royal commission begins to issue its recommendations we’ll no doubt be seeing more change come through,” he said.
“It’s an incredibly stressful time for those involved, but I have the utmost confidence in this industry and the people behind it, and couldn’t be prouder to join the ifa team as we cover the critical issues that will shape the future of financial advice.”
