Helping the leaders of tomorrow make sense of today

There’s a plethora of news out there – but the things that really matter to you, matter to us. This is the essence of why informed exists: to bring more people quality journalism covering the most pressing issues of our time. Together, we can fight misinformation and polarisation. Cut through the noise. Shine a light on the truth. Reclaim trust. And continue to take part in the conversations that count.

What we stand for

informed is founded on a strong set of journalistic principles, which underpin everything we are, and everything we do. These principles are the reason you can trust us to deliver the very highest quality content, curated in a way that brings your attention to the issues that matter most.

  1. Access matters

    News is there to be consumed – and we want you to have access to all the quality journalism that’s out there. Explore new ideas. Listen to new writers. Broaden your thinking. Escape the echo chamber. And get out of your comfort zone.

  2. Fighting misinformation matters

    Our news comes from the most credible sources, which have been thoroughly checked by our editorial team. So we can play a part in making sure the truth prevails over fake news.

  3. Both sides of the story matter

    There’s usually more than one perspective on every story. By drawing news from a diverse range of platforms and journalists, we can give you a complete picture – and the ammunition to have educated opinions.

  4. Getting to the point matters

    We believe our time is best spent focusing on issues that matter, which is why we curate our news so carefully. No more time wasted filtering out fake news, or getting lost down internet rabbit holes.

  5. Human intelligence matters

    In a world increasingly defined by technology and algorithms, we believe that human input matters – especially when it comes to the news. Our editorial team is our biggest strength, and our guiding light.
