"From regulation to changes in pay structure to the need to rebuild reputations, our readers' requirements for trusted, accurate and timely news and information has never been greater," said Phillipa Leighton-Jones, online editor, Financial News.

"The changes we've unveiled today have created a site that's richer, deeper and more flexible. But what hasn't changed is our insight, expertise and accuracy, our commitment to breaking news, telling our readers why a story's important and how it matters to them."

In addition to the new blog, all Financial News' coverage of people, personalities, jobs and pay will be featured on a new ‘People' page, which will help users keep track of who's moving where and why.

Financial News said advertisers will benefit from increased impact for their campaigns on the redesigned site, with two prominent advertising slots placed above the fold.

New targeting opportunities for advertisers will be rolled out soon, including behavioural targeting and packages across the Financial News Web site and The Wall Street Journal Digital Network.
