Louisa Bojesen

International Financial Journalist
Louisa Bojesen is best known as a familiar and trusted face, having fronted live, daily, TV programmes for CNBC. With the channel for 17 years, she hosted all the shows, including flagships ‘Squawk Box Europe’, ‘Today’s Biz’, ‘Power Lunch’ and ‘European Closing Bell’. She also hosted the live ECB and BoE shows, as well as the only week-end show ‘Investing Edge’.

Bojesen is the only anchor to have hosted 4 shows consecutively on a daily basis for almost a decade. She was also the youngest anchor and the only female anchor for a number of years.

With a new guest and topic every 5-10 minutes, Bojesen has interviewed tens of thousands of prominent industry experts, world leaders and CEOs. As one of the most popular and well-known financial journalists of her generation, she was one of the central figures to cover the unfolding of the financial crisis in real time, she broke the 7/7 London bombings news, and reported from trading floors, including Bear Stearns before its demise.

Bojesen is a sought after speaker and moderator with a wide range of topics: central bank policies, market themes, investing, Middle East, Nordic economy, tech, oil and gas, creating meaningful lives, private fireside chats, and much more.

With a keen interest in the Middle East, Louisa initiated CNBC's coverage of the region. She is a Danish Goodwill Ambassador, has been named Career Woman of the Year, and is described as a trailblazer in business news. Middle Eastern art and Levant history are passions, as are philosophical debates on life. She mentors teens and twenty-somethings, and also volunteers at an elementary school.

"Business with a personality" is often used to describe Bojesen's style and she is recognized by her warm and natural approach to conversation ("Forget about the cameras, just look at me and pretend I'm your mother").

Bojesen coaches a limited number of private clients. Please inquire for details.
