We’re reporters covering the fall of FTX and Sam Bankman-Fried. Ask us anything! (open to suggestions on something clicker!)
Hi Reddit, I’m Luc Cohen and I have covered the New York federal courts for Reuters since 2021. I have reported on cases ranging from Ghislaine Maxwell's sex trafficking trial to prosecutors' efforts to seize Russian oligarchs' assets in the wake of the invasion of Ukraine. Before moving back to New York, where I was born and raised, I was a correspondent in Reuters' Caracas bureau, where I covered Venezuela's beleaguered oil industry and the impact of U.S. sanctions on the country. I had previously worked as a reporter in Argentina, covering the economy, and in New York, where I covered commodities markets.
I’m Angus Berwick, an investigative reporter with Reuters based in London. Over the past year, my reporting has focused on cryptocurrency exchanges Binance and FTX. I closely covered FTX's collapse in November, breaking news on Sam Bankman-Fried's use of customer funds and his efforts to conceal it. I also developed a series of articles on Binance's troubled history with compliance and strategy to evade regulators. Before my crypto reporting, I was based abroad as a Reuters foreign correspondent, first in Spain and then in Venezuela.
