We are seeking a reporter to cover the financial services industry with a focus on capital markets, market infrastructure, trading, asset management and regulatory developments at the Securities and Exchange Commission. As a part of one of the most high-profile teams in our newsroom, this position would tackle some of the biggest current storylines in financial journalism: the interplay of stock market regulation and the "meme stock" craze; the ESG movement and how asset managers like BlackRock are driving it forward; and the booming market for SPACs and how it is upending the traditional IPO. We're seeking candidates who are passionate about unraveling the complex topics that define the U.S. financial markets and want to use data to explain past trends and point to what investors, researchers and regulators should watch for ahead.
Grade ( relevant for internal applicants only ): 08
The Location: Charlottesville, VA/Washington, D.C. Remote workers considered based on experience.
The Team: Reporters and editors around the world collaborate to bring readers breaking news and in-depth reporting on the regulatory changes, M&A activity and business trends impacting the financial sector.

Ownership of a fast-paced, dynamic beat with a large reader base: One day you might be interviewing a key regulatory hire at the SEC tasked with creating climate risk disclosures for public companies, the next writing about how banks are raising more money through stock or debt offerings or how American stock exchanges are closing trading floors and evolving into software firms.
