Job Description

International Financing Review, the leading source of information on fixed income and equity markets, is looking for a knowledgeable and motivated reporter to cover ESG and sustainable financing.

ESG financing is suddenly at the centre of the global capital markets. Every market participant now cares – or pretends to care – about ESG financing. But it is a market that is rife with questions that need answering, issues that need exploring, truths that need uncovering and spin that needs unspinning.

For the well-connected and hard-working journalist there are great scoops and insightful analysis pieces to be written. For this role, you will need to have the experience and ability to break news and the understanding and talent to explain sometimes complicated stories. In addition, you will have contacts in the financing industry – and the charm and energy to add more. As well as a track-record of breaking news – especially news that someone didn’t want to see in print.

Role Responsibilities

  • Breaking news on IFR’s website and Refinitiv’s Eikon/Workspace platform. Ensuring a daily flow of information on new deals, pricing, terms and themes in an efficiently and timely fashion across the products
  • Covering ESG financings and issues in sometimes considerable depth, but explaining them in a clear and punchy fashion
  • Exercising sound news judgment on what moves markets and why.
  • Establishing and maintaining close contact with bankers, traders, investors, lawyers, analysts, regulators, etc.

Knowledge of the issues surrounding ESG finance an advantage
Ability to write quickly and with style and depth
Relevant financial reporting experience
Track record of breaking news and excellent writing and analytical skills to interpret fact and opinion
