The Financial Times today officially launched FT Tilt, a new online news and analysis service which focuses solely on emerging markets.

The new service was launched by the same team that developed the FT Alphaville blog. The FT has named Tom Brammar as managing director of the new service and Paul Murphy, the founding editor of FT Alphaville, as its editor-in-chief.

Coverage on FT Tilt will be provided by a network of journalists located in regional bureaus around the world, offering news and analysis on the markets of Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, South and East Asia, Russia and Eastern Europe.

The service is being offered through two tiers; the first, Tilt Pro, is a premium service where subscribers can access the news and analysis from the Tilt editorial team.

The second is a "complimentary" Tilt Populi area where approved members can share their own commentary or research.

The site offers the ability for users to select multiple tags in order to filter content and save searches to a Tilt Bar, which can then be linked to notifications via RSS or email.

The FT says the site is also preparing to launch FT Tempo, a feature where FT Tilt journalists offer a 'sentiment score' on whether a piece of news will be "upbeat or downbeat for the companies, sectors, or asset classes involved”, a press release said.
