Matt Wirz was always good with words. But, it took a stint living in Moscow listening to the stories of other reporters to know that he wanted to be one, too. Now, after over a decade in the industry, including 12 years at The Wall Street Journal, Matt has covered all sides of the credit and fixed income world.
