Breakingviews seeks Asia columnist
Reuters Breakingviews, the world’s leading financial commentary publication, is looking to expand our team of columnists in Asia. This is an opportunity to help set the agenda on corporate finance, markets and economics in the world’s most diverse and dynamic region.
Building on our reputation for accuracy, clarity and insight, the columnist will have access to senior executives, policymakers and financiers; razor-sharp analytical skills; an ability to generate original ideas; and the skill to explain complex concepts in clear and engaging prose.
The role involves both responding rapidly to breaking news and setting the agenda, and working closely with other Breakingviews journalists to identify important topics and trends. The columnist will need to present ideas in fresh ways, for example by developing our popular range of interactive calculators and graphics, and to promote Breakingviews through media and conference appearances.
What you’ll need:
– Demonstrable ability to generate agenda-setting ideas for a global financial audience.
– Firm grasp of trends in Asian business and finance; an understanding of banking is a particular advantage.
– Good working knowledge of key concepts of valuation and corporate finance.
– The ability to deliver punchy, well-argued opinions to tight deadlines.
