Federal Treasurer Wayne Swan is about to become the second Australian MP in 29 years to be named Euromoney magazine's Finance Minister of the Year.

The London-based finance publication is due to make the announcement in the early hours of tomorrow. But news of the award is already circulating in Australia after being revealed at Labor's caucus meeting in Canberra this morning.

Paul Keating won the award in 1984 when he was Labor treasurer - and was later referred to in some quarters as the "world's greatest treasurer".
