People

Unique business culture

Pageant people are entrepreneurial, innovative and ambitious. Having grown from a team of two in London in 1998 to over 240 employees around the world today, Pageant attracts and cultivates the brightest talent across the industry. Our “can do” culture is collaborative and aspirational, giving our people licence to think differently, to take ownership of their work, and to collectively help push the business forward.

As Pageant continues to grow rapidly, we combine the agility and drive of a market disruptor with the scale and sophistication of an established incumbent.

Staff – Jasmin Leitner, US news editor, HFM

After cutting my teeth as an intern in the London office, I was given the opportunity to become a staff writer and haven’t looked back since, initially working on sponsored reports before moving onto HFM’s editorial team. Earlier this year I moved to New York as US news editor for HFMWeek, as well as leading our investor and IR-focused product. In my spare time I like to roller-skate and salsa dance, and I’m also learning Spanish to take advantage of travel opportunities in neighbouring Central and South America.
