I have worked both sides of the fence in media. As a media advisor I have worked in public relation agencies and multinational firms. On behalf of these clients, I have written stories on branding, interviews and press releases. As a reporter, I have worked in most English dailies, including The Dhaka Tribune, The Financial Express, The Independent, The Independent Television, The New Nation and The Bangladesh Today. Currently, I am working as a freelance journalist. I have ability to turn anything into an interesting. I specialises in general areas of finance and business, economy and capital market. My style brings colour to pieces which have been sought after by editors and readers. More than a decade involvement in media gives me an understanding of what works and how brands can make interesting copy too.
The prime bourse has fluctuated wildly so far this year after a depressing 2018. Investors are looking for clues about what 2019, the post-election year, will bring. Stock prices plunged about 500 points or over 8 percent, as measured by the DSEX, erasing over Tk 8 billion in value while the volume of trade dropped sharply by more than 70 percent in less than 10 weeks after they peaked on Jan 24.
