The Finance Editor, Asia will work with reporters in bureaus around the region as well as directly manage a group of Hong Kong- and Singapore-based specialist financial reporters to forge agenda-setting coverage of the most important deals, regulatory changes, investment flows and other trends shaping finance in Asia and globally.
From fintech and the challenges faced by global banks in Asia to the surge in outbound acquisition activity by Chinese firms and the reactions that is prompting, Asia is ripe with important stories watched closely by Reuters’ core financial industry clients.
