NEW YORK — Bloomberg View today announced that Matt Levine is
joining the opinion and analysis site as a columnist covering
finance, Wall Street and the broader business world. Levine was
formerly a financial columnist with Dealbreaker.

“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, the executive
editor of Bloomberg View. “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.”

Levine has been writing about economics and finance at
Dealbreaker since 2011, covering the deals, scandals,
complexities and personalities of the financial services
industry. He has written about topics ranging from the Facebook
IPO and the AIG bailout to SEC insider trading investigations,
mergers and acquisitions, and derivatives in all shapes and
sizes.

Levine’s analysis of JPMorgan’s “London Whale” debacle was
featured in the Columbia Journalism Review’s Best Business
Writing 2013. He has also written for the Wall Street Journal,
CNN.com, and The Billfold, and wrote the semi-regular “Ask a
Banker” column for NPR’s Planet Money blog.

Before becoming a blogger, Levine spent four years as an
investment banker at Goldman Sachs, structuring and marketing
corporate equity derivatives. He was previously a mergers &
acquisitions lawyer and a high school Latin teacher. He is a
graduate of Harvard and Yale Law School.
