Job Description:

Barron’s Asia seeks a motivated reporter who can write about wealth management for sophisticated investors.

This is a full-time position based primarily in Hong Kong. The reporter is expected to write in English several

stories a week for our “Penta” or wealth management section. The focus is on advice for wealthy families and

investors, and may run the gamut from interviews with private bankers to guidance on asset allocations, not to

mention stories about collecting art, buying real estate, higher education and philanthropy. Candidates must be

adept at writing for investors and coming up with original ideas, and should have a broad knowledge of the

various Asia-Pacific markets.

The successful applicant should be an adroit writer with a way with words. He or she should have at least three

to five years’ experience writing about markets, investments or wealth management, and should be able to

handle numbers and exclusive sources with equal aplomb.

While the hire will write in English, the ability to read and write Mandarin is a plus. He or she will also have a

chance to work with colleagues in New York, and have stories published in the U.S. magazine.
