Abdul Hadhi

Asia Editor


Based out of Singapore, Hadhi heads the team in Asia and drives the ever-growing news and markets coverage for the region. The explosion in news on Hanjin container lines after it filed for receivership in August 2016 thrust him into the headwinds facing the container shipping industry almost immediately after joining – a beat that he last covered with Dow Jones Newswires more than a decade back when the main topic was Neptune Orient Lines buying APL. That story has since moved to NOL being bought by CMA CGM.

More recently, he has been covering energy and commodities such as coal, LPG and petrochemicals. In those roles, he launched several price indexes for thermal and coking coal as well as petroleum coke which are currently industry benchmarks, and understands the key role freight rates play in the dry bulk market in determining the final prices of raw materials such as coal and iron ore. He hopes to bring that knowledge to enhance our coverage of the dry bulk market.

Prior to energy and commodities, he was a financial journalist with international newswires and leading domestic newspapers focusing on corporate and economic coverage ranging from real estate and banks to aviation and shipping, with a weekly slot on technical analysis on listed stocks with CNBC.

Hadhi began his career as a courts and crime reporter with Singapore Press Holdings in the relatively crime-free city-state but quickly moved on to the busier financial industry. He holds an MBA from Hull and BA Honours in History from National University of Singapore.
