US Financials Industry Editor, Deals
Role: US Financials Industry Editor, Deals
The Role: The news team covering U.S. financial institutions is seeking an editor to fill a newly created position focused on deals. This editor will follow M&A and capital markets trends and help develop story ideas. In this role, you will have the opportunity to dig through our robust data set in an effort to identify new developments in the world of dealmaking involving banks and other financial services companies. This editor will take charge of our recurring deal-related features, which include some of our most well-read content.

The Team: You'll collaborate with more than 20 writers and editors focused on the financial industry, as well as analysts and data journalists.

The next day you might just have to polish an article written by a senior reporter.

The Impact: Our real-time, subscription-based news service reaches an influential readership that includes the executives of companies we cover, major institutional investors, regulators and almost all of Wall Street's leading investment banks. With a focus on data-driven content, you can uncover emerging trends that help decisionmakers shape strategic plans.
