Job Description

GatekeeperIQ, a year-old, 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 at large retail distributors. The reporter will cover distributors’ home offices, which are the teams that influence what investment products financial advisors and brokers ultimately use with their clients. 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 (3-5 years), dedicated reporter, who is interested in the opportunity to help shape this evolving product. The ideal candidate will relish working a beat, developing a network of sources and breaking news. Applicants should also be flexible and comfortable working as part of a team. Although not required, the ideal candidate will have experience covering financial services. Ideally, the candidate will have some editing experience, too.

The job involves speaking and meeting regularly with senior-level industry executives, and covering industry conferences, some of which require travel outside of New York City.

The successful candidate will be expected to provide several stories for each new issue. GatekeeperIQ has the entrepreneurial feel of a start-up. But it also has a growing base of subscribers and the backing of a well-established company with a reputation as the premier source of information and news for the markets we serve.
