Overview

Fund Intelligence is a business intelligence service for sales, marketing, product development and C-suite professionals at US asset managers who need reliable information on key developments at their competitors and asset-raising opportunities.
We’re looking for a talented editor and strong leader to execute the Fund Intelligence content strategy and to act as a liaison with both internal and external stakeholders. The role involves supervising and directing a team of journalists, to produce editorial content for the website and email briefings.
The ideal candidate will have a strong editorial background—including experience building strong source networks— plus management skills, experience working on events and knowledge of the asset management space. Reporting experience is key, as the role will involve regularly writing stories.
The new editor will report to Pageant Media’s global wealth editor and will play a significant role in enhancing the company’s effort to broaden and deepen wealth investor coverage.

  • Running daily news meetings and directing reporters on content that is most relevant to our target audience
  • Being the go-to expert on these markets, both internally and externally
  • Working with the events and commercial teams to organize awards, webinars and summits that fall under the Fund Intelligence umbrella.
  • Serving as an expert voice on internal and external events and online video panels
