The Huffington Post named Roddy Boyd one of the 25 most feared financial reporters in America. His book about the near collapse of AIG, Fatal Risk, was long listed for 2011’s Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year.
A former staffer at Fortune, the New York Post, The New York Sun and Institutional Investor News, Boyd founded and edited The Financial Investigator blog. In addition to teaching investigative reporting at the University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill), he regularly leads seminars at Investigative Reporters and Editors conferences on Financial Statement Analysis and Fraud Detection. His work has prompted numerous regulatory, civil and criminal actions.
