Sunday Times columnist
Ian Cowie joined The Sunday Times as Personal Account columnist in 2013. He was judged to be Consumer Affairs Journalist of the Year in the 2012 London Press Club Awards, having been personal finance editor of The Daily Telegraph since 1989.
Other awards include the Wincott, Association of Investment Companies and the Association of British Insurers; he won Journalist of the Year for the first three years of the ABI Awards.
He joined the Telegraph as City Reporter in 1986. Writing about savings and investments since then, he has seen and survived several stock market setbacks but continues to believe that a disciplined approach and tax-efficient strategies can prove successful despite adversity.
