About Richard Quest
(Biography provided by CNN)
Richard Quest is CNN's foremost international business correspondent and anchor of Quest Means Business, the definitive word on how we earn and spend our money. Based in New York, he is one of the most instantly recognizable members of the CNN team.
He also presents the recently-launched Quest Express, a new business show broadcast weekdays at 12:00 ET / 17:00 BST from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Quest Express offers a quick-fire briefing on the latest market movements and business stories, building a bridge between the close of the European trading day, the opening of the markets in New York, and the start of the business day in Silicon Valley.
Additionally, Quest serves as CNNMoney's editor-at-large and files a global daily newsletter - 'CNNMoney Presents: Quest Means Business' - timed to the open of the Asia markets.
On the political front, Quest covered the 2016 U.S. presidential election campaign with his own series, 'American Quest,' in which he travelled across the battleground state of Florida interviewing a diverse range of voters in the weeks leading up to the election.
Quest is also the face of CNN's coverage of major UK events. Last summer he led CNN's coverage of the 'Brexit' vote, and has continued to report on the impact the historic vote is making on markets, economies and businesses.
His coverage of breaking news, which has spanned more than two decades, has seen him report on a range of stories from, the death of Yasser Arafat, the Lockerbie Pan Am 103 crash to the death of Michael Jackson. Quest is more than just business; there are few journalists who have had guests as varied, from His Holiness, The Dalai Lama to actress Joan Collins to founder of Playboy Magazine, Hugh Hefner.
Prior to joining CNN, he worked at the BBC, where he was the North America business correspondent, based on Wall Street for 12 years.
Quest is British, holds an LLB (Hons) degree in Law from Leeds University, and was called to the Bar.
