New York, NY
FundFire, a Money-Media publication that is part of the FT, is seeking a reporter to cover real assets for its FundFire Alternatives weekly. This is a dynamic market segment that includes some of the biggest names in finance. This beat will look at how private fund managers and other alternative industry firms build products around real estate, infrastructure, natural resources, timber, agriculture and other corners of the private market that give investors access to investments beyond stocks and bonds.
Alternatives are an increasingly important asset class, as investors look for ways to hedge against potential market swings, beat inflation and deliver returns in all market environments. Often, these investments underpin the ability pensions, insurance companies, universities and endowments to deliver on their objectives. We need a reporter with a proven track record of breaking down barriers and developing sources in an opaque industry to find news that would otherwise go unreported. The ideal candidate for this job will also be able to find scoops and produce in-depth, analytical pieces using public records, data and whatever other information they may find.
FundFire’s 100,000-strong readership includes top executives from the U.S. institutional and high-net-worth investment management industry, including the investment managers that manage and market institutional investment products, the investment offices of wealth managers, investment consultants, defined benefit pension funds, university endowments, nonprofits and foundations, as well as financial advisors.
- One to three years’ experience working as a journalist. We are open to all levels of experience above that point.
- A track record of working successfully as part of a team
- Strong ability to generate and pitch ideas
- A self-motivated, detail-oriented, inquisitive individual who works constantly to improve their skills
