Job Description

Capital Markets Correspondent


We’re looking for a strong writer to report on trends and developments in capital-raising across Asia, covering both debt and equity markets. The successful applicant will shine a spotlight on capital markets issues our clients need to know about, from the effects of the flood of tech IPOs expected to hit Hong Kong (and why it matters) to whether the rise of green bonds and other “sustainable” finance in China and India is, well, sustainable.

The job involves working closely with other members of the finance team and correspondents around the region to break news and tease out the underlying trends that matter. Will we see a new record set for IPO bookrunners beyond the current 26? And how do 26 banks make money on such a deal? Is the boom in dollar-bond sales by Asian companies the beginning of a new era - or merely a mirage created by a flood of easy money?  This job would seek to report on those questions and other trends that matter, helping cover the deals that illustrate them them along the way.

The successful candidate will be a self-starter who can help break news and provide swift analysis on those stories as well as produce deeper reporting efforts. Working closely with US and European counterparts on global trends is a must, too. We are looking for a candidate with a deep interest in capital markets as well as exceptional writing and the ability to work in a diverse team. Asian languages are an advantage, but not a requirement.

Role Responsibilities

•    Four-plus years' experience covering financial topics

•    Knowledge of capital raising is an advantage, but key is a keenness for learning the mechanics from IPOs and block trades to the difference between Kanga and Panda bonds.

•    Strong sourcing or a proven ability to source up quickly

•    A team player who can collaborate across asset classes and borders

•    Multimedia experience is a plus
