Reuters seeks credit finance reporter
Thomson Reuters is seeking an skilled and energetic journalist to cover the private U.S. secondary loan market.
The ideal candidate will be able to quickly deliver news on secondary loan trading and adjacent markets, including high yield bonds and credit default swaps. The reporter will also be able to conceive and write longer pieces on secondary trends for LPC’s print publications, real time news service LoanConnector and the Reuters newswire.
Excellent contact building, strong people skills and initiative are key for breaking news in a private market and producing market-moving off diary stories. An understanding of the syndicated loan market, how the fast-paced news cycle impacts loan trading and how this translates into breaking secondary market news is a plus but training will also be provided.
Strong written, communication and organisational skills are a must, along with two years of relevant financial reporting experience, newswire experience also a plus. Candidates who have worked in either a syndicated lending or credit trading capacity will also be considered.
