Deirdre Bolton is a television journalist, specializing in business and financial news. She is best known for her coverage of “alternative investing”, from hedge funds to private equity to angel and venture capital investing. She covers these subjects, along with other business, financial and economic news for the Fox Business Network and the Fox News Channel. Previously, she created and hosted the highly-regarded “Money Moves” program at Bloomberg TV; the show became a forum for the most astute practitioners in alternatives.
Ms. Bolton has also covered key international events, including reporting from Singapore for the historic meeting between South Korea, the U.S., and North Korea, as well as on-the-ground reporting from Paris on the terror attacks.
Ms. Bolton began her career in institutional equity sales at CDC North America and Société Générale. She completed most of her undergraduate and graduate coursework in France and holds a degree in English and French literature from the University of Iowa and a master's degree in French literature from New York University. Over the course of her career, she has lived and worked in Paris, London, and Singapore. She currently lives in New York City with her husband and her two sons (and a mischievous dog).
Bolton has a personal interest in illustration and is pursuing that at The School of Visual Arts; she is currently developing cartoon books (paper and digital) on financial literacy.
During her tenure as a journalist, Deirdre Bolton has served as a television show producer and host, an award-winning field reporter, a NYSE and NASDAQ Markets reporter, a Breaking News reporter, and a Financial / Economic Correspondent. Here are some highlights.
