A senior partner at Goldman Sachs has warned of the risks attached to the large number of banks using the same cloud-based technology providers. A raft of tier-one banks, including Citigroup, JPMorgan and HSBC, rely on Amazon's cloud storage system, as do the Financial Conduct Authority and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. This has sparked concerns that the industry has concentrated too much of its resources in a small...
The heads of innovation at two of the UK's biggest banks have joined an initiative to boost in-house understanding of technologies like blockchain and artificial intelligence, amid growing concerns about the country's ability to draw in this expertise from outside its borders. Michael Harte, Barclays’ global head of innovation, and Kaushalya Somasundaram, HSBC’s head of fintech partnerships and strategy, have joined the board of the...
The UK’s Chancellor of the Exchequer has reinstated his commitment to keep the UK as the world’s financial services centre — and a global fintech hub — after it leaves the European Union. In a speech given at the UK Finance Annual Dinner at Mansion House, Philip Hammond said the government “is determined to create the regulatory and tax environment for these new markets to succeed”. He added that he recognised the key issue for...
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".
