The Financial Express is an Indian English-language business newspaper. It is published by the Indian Express group since 1961. Financial Express specialises in India and international business and financial news.

India's oldest financial daily, Financial Express is today one of the leading newspapers in the country.[citation needed] Part of The Indian Express Group, the newspaper publishes eleven editions in English from leading cities—Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chandigarh, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mumbai and Pune. It also has an edition in Gujarati, published from Ahmedabad. The newspaper has offices across the country and is headquartered in Delhi.


The Financial Express has supported the eventual breakdown of the arbitrary control-based system that characterized the Indian economy to its emergence as a free market enterprise with accent on merit.[citation needed] The paper espouses the same position in its coverage of international developments.[citation needed] The position is based on a careful observation of the way economies have evolved in the past few decades. This is also known as a championing of the free market position.[citation needed] The FE columns and editorials articulate this opinion succinctly. The FE edit page columns are therefore the most widely read pieces among all business publications in India. Besides, the newspaper has an exclusive tie-up with the Financial Times and The Economist of London to carry its articles all days of the week on an exclusive co-branded page and the op-ed page.
