Regulation reporter, Risk.net
New York, United States
Editorial, Full time
Would you like to report on the rules that determine the fate of the US financial sector, including the largest banks, asset managers and exchanges? Risk.net is seeking an energetic and insightful reporter to cover financial regulation in the US.
The US regulation reporter will have primary responsibility for Risk.net’s coverage of the major financial regulatory agencies, including the Federal Reserve, Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.
The ideal candidate will be passionate and knowledgeable about finance and policymaking, 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.
