Below you’ll find a list of the men and women who bring you the latest political and economic news from across Australia and around the globe.
Our editors are unlike any you’ll find working in the mainstream media. Their ideas and insights can give you a big advantage over your friends and colleagues relying on conventional sources. They truly think well outside the box. And they’re not afraid to share their views with you, even if it ruffles some feathers.
Bernd Struben is the lead editor at The Australian Tribune. Bernd makes use of his extensive network to bring you the top stories you need to know about each day. Stories the mainstream may miss. Or bury somewhere you’re unlikely to ever read them.
Bernd studied aerospace engineering and journalism at the University of Michigan, before graduating with a degree in economics. Over the past two decades he’s worked in media, management, and finance in the US, the Caribbean, Europe, and Australia.
His other role, as the editor of the Port Phillip Insider, puts him in a unique position to read Australia’s most exclusive financial advice. Some of which he shares with readers of The Australian Tribune for free.
Kris is never one to pull punches, especially when it comes to Australia’s hapless bureaucracy and special interest groups. He’ll take on anyone when it comes to the political and economic stories that affect you.
Dubbed the ‘Jeremy Clarkson of Australian finance’, Kris began as a London finance broker specialising in small-cap stock analysis on London’s Alternative Investment Market — which covered everything from Kazakhstani gold miners to toy train companies.
A fully accredited advisor in shares, options, warrants and foreign-exchange investments, Kris spent several years at a leading Australian wealth-management company before he began working at Port Phillip Publishing, where he is the Publisher and CEO.
Shae Russell started out in financial markets more than a decade ago, and has extensive experience with both stock and derivatives markets.
For the past two years, Shae has analysed global macro trends and shown investors how they can take advantage of these.
Shae is a sceptic anytime a politician opens their mouth. She values individual freedoms, has a deep mistrust of central bank statistics influencing monetary policy, and an irrational love of all things bullion.
