Jamie Coleman, the voice of FXStreet’s now-defunct commentary service FXBeat, has revisited his institutional roots by joining North American wealth management firm MFS Investment Management, responsible for Marketing and Communications.

Mr. Coleman is a widely renowned personality amng the banking giants of the United States, as well as a name synonymous with the institutional FX industry having spent 10 years at Thomson Reuters as Managing Editor until 2008 where he managed the Reuters FX Hub business and produced original content geared toward FX traders in real time.

Entrepreneurism caught Mr. Coleman in December 2008, when he founded ForexLive.com which was established in conjunction with FXDD to provide live market commentary and analysis, growing its audience to 200,000 unique monthly users. It was during the four years at ForexLive.com that Mr. Coleman established a definitive editorial style and voice which gained him personality status among traders.

Far removed from the anodyne publications of the time, Mr. Coleman injected character into daily market reports, whether spoken or written, marking him out as a transatlantic Richard Quest among grey-suited corporates.

In October 2013, Mr. Coleman took this style to a new venture, this time FXBeat, which was a service provided by FXStreet to provide over forty market commentaries per day in fast-moving market conditions, wth a special emphasis on global equity, commodities and fixed income asset classes in addition to FX.

When FXBeat closed its doors in October 2014, Mr. Coleman joined Bank of America as User Experience Editorial Consultant, his penultimate role before joining MFS Investment Management this month.

With over 31 years of industry experience, Mr. Coleman’s career began at Eurobrokers in 1985 in New York, before he served at several major banks during the boom years of the late 80s, taking him through to the mid 1990s including Bear Stearns, Gill and Duffus, ABN AMRO and ING Investment Banking.

Mr. Coleman holds a BA in Government from Georgetown University.
