Position Summary

Reuters is seeking an experienced journalist to interpret market trends and developments in Asia, and bring new ideas on investment markets to our readers. Located in Hong Kong, the intersection of China's markets and the West, the successful candidate will track trends in investment and capital flows across asset classes and the interaction with politics and policy across the region.

After driving global growth and being a magnet for investors following the global financial crisis, Asia now faces challenges to maintain its momentum, including tougher competition for funds and greater scrutiny of the investment environment. We're looking for someone who can find out who is moving money in and out, and why, and tell that story with a distinctive style. In a region where many markets are undeveloped and wary of opening up too quickly, regulatory changes can have a major influence on investment returns and decisions, and we need someone who is confident in explaining the changes in rules around capital.

Role Responsibilities

  • Deliver interpretative stories and fresh angles on both conventional markets and new investment opportunities, such as cryptocurrencies, and how investment strategies change in response to economics, regulation and politics
  • Write stories about industry itself, such as changes in the way trade is conducted, new technologies and shifts in business models
  • Ability to build strong source relationships is a requirement for this position
  • Be a leader who can work with reporters in bureaus around Asia, including on major spot stories, and be part of a network of investment correspondents in Europe and the United States
  • Strong writer with experience covering markets at a regional level, and offers a career path into more senior editorial roles

Required Skills and Experience

  • Sophisticated understanding of markets and how they interact
  • Strong writer who can demystify jargon and explain complex subjects in an accessible way
  • Proven ability to build a broad range of sources in the industry
  • Demonstrable experience of producing multimedia content
  • Able to work with bureaus across Asia, and with reporters who may not be experienced market hands
