I'm a senior writer at Bloomberg News, now in London by way of San Francisco & New York. Covering the exploding fintech story reshaping European finance. Lots of drama, lots of promise, lots of questions that need answering... and the blockchain. Check out my stuff.
Pettigrew: We’ve taken on new customers, which is fantastic. We got our first position in the automotive industry which is a huge step for us. We’ve fallen a bit short on revenue from where we’d like to be, which I think is just the nature of the marketplace being still quite uncertain globally. I think inevitably even with the best capability in the world it causes procurement cycles to be longer than you’d like them to be. It causes people to pause.
Bloomberg News is following four CEOs over a two-year period as they try to limit the Brexit fallout. We caught up with them a year after the referendum. Four companies, four Brexit experiences. A year after Britain voted to leave the European Union, the chiefs of the firms Bloomberg is tracking talk about the last 12 months and what they see ahead. One was and is pro-Brexit, three thought it was a bad idea.
Botin gathered a team of bankers, lawyers and other staff at Santander’s headquarters on the weekend of May 27 and 28 to analyze the financial implications of taking over Popular, people with knowledge of the meeting said. In the U.S. the following week, she spoke with Luis de Guindos, Spain’s economy minister, on the sidelines of a meeting of the Bilderburg Club in Chantilly, Virginia.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
