Marina Gerner is a Soviet-born, German, and almost British journalist. Almost, because it’s hard to find time for the “Life in the UK” test, when you’re busy living life.
Mostly, she (which is to say I, since I’m writing this blob and just pretending not to) writes about books, culture, philosophy and finance. You can read a selection of her articles here.
She has written for the Economist’s 1843, Financial Times, Times Literary Supplement, MoneyWeek, Jewish Chronicle, the Guardian (research) and Standpoint Magazine in the UK, First Things Magazine and the New York Observer in the US and die Bild and Frankfurter Rundschau in Germany. She has been a guest speaker on the BBC World Service.
In 2015, she completed her PhD at the London School of Economics, where she taught master students and gave lectures on the MSc Global Media and International Journalism Summer School. In 2014, she was invited to be a visiting scholar at Columbia University’s sociology department in New York.
Currently, she’s a Staff Writer at Money Observer, where she writes features and news as well as her column Marina’s Imaginary Millions. In 2016, she won the National Financial Journalist Newcomer of the Year Santander Media Award “with glowing praise from the judges who liked her critical edge, hands on advice and depth of research”. She was shortlisted for a Headlinemoney Award and two Unbiased Media Awards.
Sometimes, she writes under a pseudonym, which sounds much more extravagant than her real name, but her voice remains the same, so that loyal readers are able to spot her nom de plume.
She is trilingual and lives in London.
