Loch Adamson, London bureau chief for the Institutional Investor and a member of the 2011 Nieman class, is the first Reynolds Nieman Fellow in Business Journalism. She is studying the ecology of risk in the global financial system and exploring the challenges that industry practitioners and policymakers now face in anticipating and containing market crises.

Made possible through a five-year grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, this annual fellowship is offered to journalists who are U.S. citizens and who report on business issues. Journalists selected for the fellowships may take advantage of classes across campus, including those offered at Harvard Business School.

The Reynolds Foundation is a national philanthropic organization founded in 1954 by the late media entrepreneur for whom it is named. Headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada, it is one of the 50 largest private foundations in the United States and has invested more than $100 million in its National Journalism Initiative.

The Reynolds Foundation has committed to sponsoring the business journalism fellowship through 2015.
