The Wall Street Journal is seeking a reporter to cover global hedge-fund business.
The $3.2 trillion industry manages the fortunes of some of the world’s wealthiest people, but also the pension funds of police officers, firefighters and teachers across the U.S. Their huge war chest means hedge funds move markets.
They also move companies to make changes, such as ousting executives and cutting jobs. The people at the top of hedge funds are some of the most interesting in the financial world.
We are seeking a top-tier reporter and writer on this beat. The successful candidate has excellent sourcing skills, the poise to handle professional-grade push-back, the finesse to connect dots on stories the subjects don’t want you to tell and a sophisticated understanding of the world of high finance.
This is a hard job, but an essential one at the Journal’s core.
