The Financial Times (FT) is a British international business newspaper. It is a morning daily newspaper published in London. The periodical is printed at 24 sites. Its main rival as a daily financial newspaper is the New York City-based Wall Street Journal, which also publishes several international editions.

Founded in 1888 by James Sheridan and his brother, the Financial Times competed for many years with four other finance-oriented newspapers, finally in 1945 absorbing the last of these, the Financial News (founded in 1884). The FT has specialised in reporting business and financial news while maintaining an independent editorial outlook. On occasion it has attacked the financial policies of the British government. Circulation of the FT is said to be one of the world's highest among financial newspapers, second only to that of The Wall Street JournalTemplate:Fact. Printed as a broadsheet on distinctive light salmon pink paper, the FT is the only paper in the UK providing full daily reports on the London Stock Exchange and world markets.
