Reuters seeks a hedge fund reporter
Reuters is looking for a prolific scoop-getter to join our team in New York that covers financial markets.
This position is a key role in a team that uses markets as a tip sheet to break news, not only about high finance but also the broader world. The successful candidate will build sources with people who control money flows on both the buy-side and the sell-side. The reporter will find out what information these sources have, the bets they are placing based on that knowledge and how those bets are faring.
That means finding people at major hedge funds, endowments and family offices as well as Wall Street banks and trading firms to get the inside scoop. If you are constantly talking to sources, understand how finance works, thrive when you break a story and are paranoid about losing, we want to talk to you.
You should have:
A strong work ethic, team spirit and passion to win
An ability to cultivate sources, especially in the world of finance
A track record of generating scoops and producing impactful stories
A contact list of traders, funds, family offices and other market sources
Financial literacy and a firm grasp of how markets work
