Stefanie Marotta reports on banking at the The Globe and Mail, covering the country's largest lenders and the industry's regulators. She has interviewed industry leaders at major events and conferences, including Sibos, Canadian Club Toronto and the Bloomberg Canadian Finance Conference, and shared her reporting on live television, radio and podcasts.

Over more than a decade, Stefanie has worked in roles spanning business, technology, politics and municipal affairs reporting, as well as stints in media relations and strategic corporate communications on Bay Street and Queen’s Park.

She previously covered equity markets at Bloomberg News, reporting stories for the web and television on BNN Bloomberg. Her coverage focused on Canada’s stock market as it whipsawed amid rising interest rates, as well as banking, real estate, cannabis and technology stocks. Prior to that role, she reported on banks, deals and fintech at the Financial Post.

Previously, she spent two years at the Globe and Mail in various stints across the newsroom. She covered COVID-19 workplace outbreaks and labour issues for the national and investigative desks, provincial affairs for The Globe's Alberta Bureau, and investing, finance, and other general assignments for the Report on Business. She has also reported on breaking news at the Toronto Star, and scrummed on the hill at CBC’s parliamentary bureau while chase producing for CBC’s Power & Politics.

Before jumping into national newsrooms, Stefanie spent five years working in corporate and public affairs at a major bank and a provincial ministry. She started her career as a bank teller.

Stefanie’s roots are in journalism. She penned her first byline at her university student newspaper, where she covered university governance and finance as the news editor and led the paper as editor-in-chief. She is endlessly curious about how money moves and, in turn, how that affects people on and beyond Bay Street.
