In 2003, she published a book on Japan's banking crisis, Saving the Sun: How Wall Street Mavericks Shook Up Japan's Financial World and Made Billions. In 2004 she began building a group at the Financial Times to cover capital markets anticipating the need to watch an industry that was growing quickly. By 2007, one year before everyone else, she began issuing warnings of a looming financial crisis. In honor of her work she was given 3 awards: the Journalist of the Year at the British Press Awards, British Business Journalist of the Year and the Wincott Prize.

She is the author of Fool's Gold: The Inside Story of JP Morgan and How Wall Street Greed Corrupted It's Bold Dream and Created a Financial Catastrophe.
