Description

Pageant Media is looking for a bright and enthusiastic reporter to join our growing team of journalists covering the activities of private wealth investors. The role is ideal for an early-career journalist looking to build their financial reporting experience working on established global media brands. We need a reporter hungry for news, who will come in and hit the phones to uncover valuable exclusive information for our subscribers, and cultivate strong relationships with senior industry execs.

You’ll be working as part of a fast-paced news team, with daily news conferences and story targets to ensure we are providing our asset manager subscribers with the actionable intelligence they need from us, ahead of the game. Your work will feature in our leading asset manager brands HFM, Fund Intelligence, REFI and PCFI.

We’re open to candidates in either Cardiff or London, but wherever you’re based, you’ll be working with colleagues across our global footprint to track the investment decisions of the world’s largest and most sophisticated investors.

  • Travel occasionally to cover industry conferences and build contacts (when feasible due to Covid-19).

 

Requirements

  • Financial reporting experience and/or journalism training and a desire to build a career in financial/business journalism
  •  Ability to break exclusive news and write compelling and insightful analysis
  • Analytical and comfortable working with data
