Debtwire, an ION Analytics company and the leading provider of news and analysis for the global fixed income markets, is seeking a reporter to cover the North American primary market for syndicated and private credit. Our North American product provides sophisticated investors and advisors with deep-dive coverage of public and private companies, with an emphasis on high-yield, distressed and restructuring borrowers.

The Reporter role is focused on breaking news on companies raising leveraged loans and bonds for M&A, refinancing and organic growth.

The reporter will be part of team of journalists and credit and legal analysts based in New York and around our global offices.
