Reuters seeks leveraged loan reporter

July 30, 2014

Posted by Chris Roush

Thomson Reuters LPC, the world’s leading source of information on syndicated loans, is looking for an experienced, knowledgeable and motivated reporter to cover the US leveraged loan market, which finances some of the world’s biggest non-investment grade companies and multibillion dollar acquisition deals.

The successful candidate will cover the $1.14 trillion primary leveraged loan market for Loan Pricing Corp, Reuters newswire and IFR magazine, breaking news and writing analysis for all Thomson Reuters brands, including real-time services and publications. The private nature of the leveraged loan market, which finances riskier ‘junk’ companies and private equity buyouts, means that well-connected journalists can break exclusive news on jumbo M&A deals, such as the $25 billion buyout of computer maker Dell, and play a key role on some of the biggest corporate finance, debt capital markets, banking, regulatory and restructuring stories.

We are looking for a flexible reporter with strong people and communication skills who is comfortable talking to senior bankers in the loan market and will be able to work independently to develop strong relationships with IFR and Reuters colleagues and liase across teams on crossover stories.

Key Responsibilities
– Proactive approach to generating content written for expert and non-expert clients
– Ensuring that a daily flow of information on new deals, pricing, terms, allocations and themes, is covered in an efficient and timely manner fashion across the products
– Breaking news on LPC and IFR’s real time services and Reuters wire
– Exercising sound news judgment on what moves markets and why
– Establishing and maintaining close contact with US-based and foreign banks
– Contributing to LPC, IFR and the Reuters wire news and product sections
