Media Organization: Money-Media, a Financial Times company
Money-Media’s offices are based in midtown Manhattan. As a Financial Times publication, we offer a competitive salary and excellent benefits, as well as a positive and team-oriented environment. Check us out at www.money-media.com.
Pearson, the parent company of the Financial Times, is committed to equality of opportunity. We are determined to create a diverse group at all levels of our company -- and we welcome all members of the community we serve to apply for openings with us.
GatekeeperIQ, a new online publication from Financial Times subsidiary Money-Media, is looking for an experienced reporter to cover broker-dealers and other retail distribution platforms.
The product provides news, data and intelligence about the people and processes that drive decision-making on large retail investment platforms. The reporter will cover distributors’ home offices, which are the groups that influence the product selection of financial advisors and brokers. Our target audience includes key accounts executives at asset management firms, who seek to crack these platforms and keep abreast of industry changes.
We seek an experienced, enthusiastic reporter, who is interested in the opportunity to help shape a new product. This person will relish working a beat, developing a network of sources and breaking news. Applicants should also be flexible and comfortable working in a team-setting. Although not required, the ideal candidate will have experience covering financial services.
The job involves speaking and meeting regularly with senior industry executives, and covering industry conferences, some of which require travel outside of New York. The successful candidate will be expected to provide several stories for each new issue. As a new launch, this product will have the entrepreneurial feel of a start-up, but the backing of a well-established company with a reputation as the premier source of information and news for the markets we serve.
Let us know why you’d be a good fit for this position by sending a cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put GatekeeperIQ Reporter in the subject line of the e-mail.
