Job Details

We are looking for an emerging reporter to join our team in a role that offers the chance to build international contact networks and work on industry scoops. Based in London, the journalist will report to the managing editor of Trading Risk. https://trading-risk.com/ 

Our title covers the insurance-linked securities (ILS) and reinsurance industry, at the intersection of the hedge fund and specialist insurance markets. Over the past year, we have reported on everything from losses due to US hurricanes, Florida’s failing insurance market, as well as industry ESG adaptations and hedge fund redemptions.

Our collaborative reporting team operates closely alongside the industry we report on, digging up news tips from our contacts and analysing industry data to produce added value news and opinion pieces for our subscribers.

As we attend and host industry events in Europe and the US, the role offers the chance for some travel. Over time, we would expect the reporter to take part in hosting panels and other public forums.

The ideal candidate is likely to be someone with a willingness to acquire a strong technical understanding of the industry in order to engage with market participants and provide high-value content to subscribers.

Trading Risk is part of B2B publishing firm Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC. https://www.euromoneyplc.com/ The firm offers attractive benefits including employer matching contributions to the corporate pension scheme, travel loans and an openness to flexible working. Our workplace operates on a hybrid basis with people splitting their time between home and our central London office.
