We are as good as the stories we tell. From a newsroom perspective this means a constant but careful analysis of the editorial product, figuring out our coverage gaps, and plugging them by bringing on board the best journalists. In that context, I am glad to have Jayshree P. Upadhyay join the team. Jayshree and I were both part of the Mumbai bureau in the Mint newsroom, where we sort of briefly got to know each other. I have great respect for her dogged reporting skill and ability to be on top of big, complicated stories.

Jayshree joins us as a writer and will write stories at the intersection of large companies, finance and regulatory bodies.

With a decade of experience, Jayshree has worked at Mint, Business Standard and Bloomberg TV. Bulk of her career has been devoted to tracking the market regulator, exchanges, regulatory policies, investigations, financial scams and corporate governance issues. One of her biggest breaking stories was her incisive coverage of the colocation scam which put the lapses at National Stock Exchange in the public domain. 

Please join me in welcoming her to the team. She can be reached at first name @mailtmc.com

The Morning Context has raised money from a clutch of investors, entirely in their personal capacity. It is quite likely that some of them may be directly or indirectly involved in a competing line of business similar to the companies we write about. Our full list of investors is here
