Risk management reporter, Risk.net
Would you like to report on everything that goes wrong in the financial sector – and how to avoid it? Risk.net is seeking an energetic and insightful reporter to cover risk management, based in New York with hybrid working.
The risk management reporter will share responsibility for Risk.net’s coverage of topics ranging from cyber-hacking to money-laundering, and from rogue traders to board-level governance failures.
The ideal candidate will be passionate and knowledgeable about finance and technology, with a talent for bringing complex topics to life, and the ability to combine the best elements of trade and mainstream financial journalism to produce must-read articles that stand out from the crowd. They should be equally adept at breaking news and writing in-depth, long-form features. A proven ability to build and maintain strong source relationships is a must.
Risk.net covers financial products, institutions and markets. The regulation desk is central to this effort, with a remit that spans rulemaking and supervisory activity in financial markets around the globe.
Risk.net is a rare beast: a financial industry publication that thrives on long-form investigative journalism. Our readers represent the full cross-section of the market, and our reporting reflects this – we speak to banks and asset managers, the technology and infrastructure firms that connect them, and the regulators and supervisors that oversee them. This is a great strength, enabling us to piece together complex stories from multiple perspectives and points of view.
Risk.net has a collegiate style – our team of 35 journalists and editors, spread across five editorial desks and three offices, actively collaborate on projects and pool their insights and contacts. We give our journalists the time and resources necessary to produce great stories. Standards are high, but so is management support.
Risk.net is owned by Infopro Digital, a global publishing and events company with over 4,000 employees across 17 countries and annual revenues of over half a billion dollars. Infopro Digital’s financial services unit, known as Risk Global, is a 300-person organisation with offices in London, Hong Kong, New York and Nashville.
