Pageant Media provides exclusive editorial, research, data and events for senior executives within the asset management industry. Our editorial brands, including HFM, REFI, PCFI and Traditional Fund Intelligence, are seen as market leaders in providing asset manager sales and IR execs with the actionable information they require to help them raise and retain assets.

To maintain and grow our leading position in the market we need to continue to hire highly motivated, thoughtful and inquisitive journalists to ensure our subscribers are getting the exclusive intelligence they need first, and most comprehensively, through our range of services.

 

The Job

Pageant Media’s global content teams are tasked with delivering best-in-class data and actionable intelligence on institutional and private wealth investors, fund managers and service providers across the global asset management industry.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a talented, analytical writer to develop and write in depth profiles on the investment activities of US endowments and foundations.

The writer will need to be comfortable interviewing senior level individuals at these allocators about their approach to investing across hedge funds, private equity, real estate, private debt, and other areas.

The successful candidate will work closely with our IR team to source interviewees and write up engaging profiles of these investors that are full of actionable intelligence for our asset manager audience.

This is an entrepreneurial role building on the initial success we’ve had creating profiles in the space, and it is likely that the successful candidate will hire direct reports to expand our coverage as we grow momentum.
