She began covering world financial markets for The Times in May 1998 and won the Pulitzer Prize in 2002 for her “trenchant and incisive” coverage of Wall Street in which she revealed deep conflicts of interest among powerful and respected brokerage firm analysts. A graduate of Saint Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, Morgenson worked as a stockbroker in New York City in the early 1980s, was a writer at Money Magazine later that decade and an assistant managing editor at Forbes Magazine in the 1990s.

She is also co-author, with Rosner, of “These are the Plunderers,” a book scrutinizing the private equity industry to be published by Simon & Schuster in May 2023. In addition to the Pulitzer Prize, Morgenson has won three Gerald Loeb Awards--one in 2002 for excellence in financial commentary, another in 2009 for her coverage of Wall Street and a third with a group of New York Times reporters in 2009. The following year, she received the Elliott V. Bell Award from the New York Financial Writers’ Association for her “significant long-term contribution to the profession of financial journalism.” In 2018, she received the Distinguished Achievement Award from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers for her “outstanding contribution to business journalism.” Ms. Morgenson has also served on two Pulitzer Prize juries, evaluating investigative reporting entries in 2009 and 2010, and was a Loeb Award final judge for several years.
