About Alan Kohler

Alan Kohler has carved a distinguished career spanning over 52 years in financial journalism. His journey began as a cadet at The Australian in 1970, where he honed his skills before becoming the Chanticleer columnist for the Australian Financial Review in 1979. His editorial acumen led to his appointment as editor of the AFR in 1985, followed by a return to writing the Chanticleer column in 1988. After a stint as a strategist at James Capel Australia, Alan assumed the editorship of The Age in 1992.

Transitioning to broadcast journalism, Alan joined the ABC’s 7.30 Report in 1995 as its economics and business correspondent, while also contributing commentary to Fairfax newspapers such as The Age, the Sydney Morning Herald, and the Financial Review. By 2002, he had moved to ABC News as a finance presenter, broadening his influence in television journalism.

In 2005, Alan Kohler founded Eureka Report, a subscription newsletter for investors, and later expanded his reach with Business Spectator, a free online financial publication launched in 2007. These ventures were acquired by News Corporation in 2012, leading Alan to continue writing columns for The Australian and delivering finance reports for ABC News.

In 2016, Alan launched The Constant Investor, a new subscription newsletter tailored for investors, which he later sold to InvestSMART Group in 2018 along with Eureka Report. Despite these shifts, Alan remains at the forefront of financial journalism as the editor-in-chief of Eureka Report, a finance presenter on ABC News, and a columnist for The New Daily.

His enduring expertise and insights continue to shape the landscape of Australian financial reporting.
