Risk.net is looking for a senior reporter to be based out of its Hong Kong bureau. The senior reporter will be responsible for researching and writing news on the Risk Management desk covering the Asia Pacific region. The risk management team produces news articles relating to the measurement, modelling and management of financial risks across banks and other types of financial institutions.
Risk’s coverage stands out by virtue of its depth. We try to be first to the industry’s more technical stories – but even when we are not, we will always offer more insight and analysis than other titles.
Our readers represent the full cross-section of the market, and our reporting reflects that – we speak to the buy-side, the sell-side, 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 that have multiple stakeholders.
The role requires a minimum of three to four years financial reporting experience, preferably within investment banking or capital markets.
Cultivate industry contacts to generate a constant stream of news leads
Contribute to coverage regularly with news, profiles and feature articles on topics that our readers care about and cannot be found elsewhere.
Collaborate with journalists and editors across our five editorial desks and three bureaus in Hong Kong, London and New York.
Look for stories that use – and bring to life – the large datasets now available in derivatives and other markets.
• Proven experience as a journalist, preferably covering the financial sector and/or markets for most of that time.
• Exceptional writing and editing skills and a knack for explaining complex topics in plain English.
• A keen eye for detail and nuances of meaning.
• A willingness to learn about a broad range of financial topics.
We operate a culture where success is recognised. You will be supported throughout your career tailoring your development through management support, internal and external training courses, and on the job training.
In addition to a competitive salary we offer the following benefits:
• 20 days annual leave
• Group personal pension plan
• Life assurance
• Employee assistance programme
• Private medical insurance
• Dental insurance
