Markets Correspondent, Hong Kong

Job Description

Markets Correspondent, Hong Kong,


Position Summary

Reuters is seeking an experienced journalist to report on market trends in Asia, with a particular focus on Hong Kong markets and their intersection with China's markets. Based in Hong Kong, the successful candidate will be able to follow and explain trends in investment and capital flows, and how markets, economics and politics interact in the region.

Hong Kong is a global gateway to China as it cautiously opens up its financial markets, and the reporter will tell the story of how that impacts the territory's markets and beyond. From H-shares, China's MSCI inclusion, stock and bond connect flows, as well as Hong Kong's long-standing role as a major capital and equity centre in Asia, the reporter will deliver both spot coverage and analytical and initiative pieces on what is driving markets, how business models are changing and how technology impacts the industry.

The role calls for a reporter who can deliver interpretative stories and fresh angles on both conventional markets and new investment opportunities, such as cryptocurrencies, and how investment strategies and opportunities change in response to economics, regulation and politics.

The successful candidate will 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.

The job would suit a strong writer with experience covering markets at a regional level, and offers a career path into more senior editorial roles.

Required Skills and Experience

  • At least five years covering markets
  • 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
