Alaric has been a journalist for the past 12 years, of which the past seven have been focused on shipping markets and shipping companies.

He leads Bloomberg News's shipping coverage from the company's offices in London, following movements and trends in oil-tanker and dry-bulk markets as well as covering some of the industry's larger shipowners publicly traded in Europe.
