Gemma Acton has worked across broadcast media, business and finance for more than two decades, covering market-moving stories and meeting the people behind the headlines - at home in Australia and across the world.

Gemma is currently the Network Finance Editor at 7 News - the most-watched news service in Australia - where she presents the latest financial and business news to audiences across the entire country.

Prior to this, she hosted broadcast programmes at CNBC International in London and also worked as an on-air correspondent pursuing stories across Europe for the network.

Gemma regularly joins radio shows and podcasts - as well as private and corporate functions and charity events as an MC, moderator, panelist or guest speaker.

Returning to Australia in late 2017 was a lovely homecoming after she spent 18 years abroad living, working and studying in cities including London, New York, Dubai, Milan & Paris.

In addition to broadcasting, during this time abroad, she worked in investment banking and wealth management at Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch and PIMCO.

Gemma also gained an MBA/MA from the Lauder Institute and the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, a BA from University College London and the highly prestigious Chartered Financial Analyst qualification. She recently also attained her Company Directors Course qualification from the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

Gemma's day job involves interviewing chief executives, company founders, fund managers and industry experts - as well as everyday Australians - to understand how changes in our economy and society affect all of us.

To relax, she swims everyday and has a particular love of skiing, tennis and running. She likes to read Italian and French - and do battle with cryptic crosswords - to keep her brain ticking along!

I cannot say enough about how great Gemma was to work with. She is deeply researched on the topic and the person she interviews, completely understood the audience and knew exactly what it takes to drive an engaging fire side chat. Due to her extensive experience she gave us useful teachings and tips throughout the whole process...I can’t wait to work with her again.


Gemma was an outstanding host for our panel discussion on "Will technology break the bank?". Gemma was knowledgeable, energetic and engaging - and skillfully helped our panelists to keep the audience interested and entertained from start to finish.


...Attendees remarked to us in feedback about how enjoyable it was to listen to Gemma’s digestible and actionable contributions. She tailored her engagement to the audience perfectly, energising the room with her motivation and infectious personality...
