Altfi is looking for a newsletter writer

April 24, 2022

Posted by Margarita Sanabria

Earlier this year AltFi launched its first US newsletter called The Finsight, a weekly breakdown of the ins and outs of America’s burgeoning fintech sector

Now we’re looking for a new freelance journalist or writer with an advanced understanding of the US financial technology landscape who can join us to help independently write this 800-1,200 word newsletter.


Our core focus is on disruption to lending, banking and investing. This includes alternative lending, digital banks and digital wealth management.

Founded in 2013, AltFi’s events in Europe, Australia and North America have become a ‘must’ for anyone interested in the space, while our team has also expanded to include specialist news and analysis.

Alongside our sister media brand ETF Stream, which serves the exchange-traded funds industry in Europe, Australia and Asia, we are making the disruption of finance more transparent and accessible to an increasingly wider audience.


  • Write content for our fortnightly US newsletter (c.800-1,200 words per newsletter)
  • Use humour, analytical writing and specific insights to unpack the US fintech landscape
  • Come up with ideas for the mini-features, interviews and leader article themes that will form the newsletter
  • Work remotely and independently, with the support of our UK editorial team
  • Possibly working alongside other freelance Newsletter Writers


They should be well versed in companies like Stripe, Square, Plaid, Robinhood and Brex, aware of broad financial industry trends, like how open banking is challenging the card payment networks, and able to write with humor and analytical thinking.

Journalism training or media law training is a plus, but not essential.


Successful applicants will be able to demonstrate strong experience in newsletter writing, with their own ideas to bring to the table for the mini-features, interviews and leader article topics which will form the base of the newsletter.


  • Write a short introduction about yourself
  • Include a paragraph highlighting your writing experience, relevant credentials and publication credits
  • Attach two examples of articles/newsletters you’ve written


  • $250- $350 per newsletter (800-1200)
