Matt Levine is joining Bloomberg View as a financial columnist. Levine has spent the past two years as editor of Dealbreaker.com, where he wrote about everything from the Facebook IPO to the AIG bailout. Levine’s writing has also been featured on CNN.com and in The Wall Street Journal.
“We’re excited to have Matt join us and to add his formidable and intimate understanding of financial markets to the strengths of our existing coverage,” said David Shipley, executive editor of Bloomberg View, in a statement. “Matt is fast, insightful and has a distinct and well-founded point of view, all of which will continue to be hallmarks of our coverage.”
In his last post on Dealbreaker, Levine expressed gratitude for his time there. “I started reading Dealbreaker as a junior M&A lawyer in 2006, so I’ve been a fan from the beginning,” wrote Levine. “It’s still a little hard to believe that I got to actually help make Dealbreaker for a while. It’s been a great privilege, and I’m looking forward to being a fan again.”
