Gavin Serkin has been writing about developing economies for the best part of two decades as the Editor of Portfolio International magazine and more recently as the head of the emerging markets international desk at Bloomberg News in London.
His work keeps him in touch with some of the biggest investors and world leaders, chairing conference panels on issues from African development and Chinese growth to Islamic finance.
Gavin led Bloomberg's coverage of the credit and derivatives markets from 2004 to 2008, winning the Society of American Business Editors & Writers' Best in Business Award and the Society of Professional Journalists' Deadline Club Award. His team's exposure of problems brewing in the little understood world of collateralized debt obligations provided warnings of the subprime mortgages disaster about to unfold.
Gavin has a joint honors degree in Economics & International Relations. He lives by the sea in Whitstable, England, with his wife and son.
