Reuters seeks investment management reporter in London

by

Reuters is looking to recruit an experienced correspondent to cover the Investment Management sector in London, able to break news on and explain to a non-specialist audience the changes taking place in the industry as it adapts to new regulation and the shake-out of the financial crisis.

Fund managers face pressure on fees as they seek to justify the charges they make for outperforming benchmarks and each other. They are also increasingly moving into areas dominated in the past by banks as they pursue better returns in a low interest rate environment, as well as shifting assets into so-called alternative investments.

The successful candidate will demonstrate a deep understanding of the fund management industry in all its guises, have a proven track-record of breaking exclusive news and experience of using performance data to help tell the story of the changes sweeping through the sector. They will also need to be able to understand companies and complex M&A situations in which “long only” and activist fund managers often play a critical role. They will be a strong team player, willing to share tips and sources within their immediate team and with colleagues in EMEA and the other regions in order to break news.

Qualifications

Skills Required:
- Strong journalism skills
- Excellent, broad source-building talent
- Track record in breaking news
- Eye for detail and ability to write about personalities to tell the story
- Proven analytical judgment and skills to write smart stories for investors.
- Understanding of fund management and investment banking
- Good numeracy and ability to cut through industry jargon
- Solid knowledge and interest in valuation metrics
- Ability to work in a calm and collegiate way with colleagues
- Proven interest in fund management industry
- Proven track record of idea generation and delivery of well-reported stories
- Ability to write quick analysis as well as more thought-out pieces.

Reuters seeks editor to oversee energy markets news in New York

by

Reuters News is seeking an exceptional journalist, an inspirational leader and an insightful editor to lead coverage of the most important story of the decade – the North American shale revolution, and its transformative impact on global energy markets.

The broad contours of this story are well established, as surging U.S. production and falling imports promise an economic revival that will fundamentally alter America’s position in the world. But beyond the headlines, the energy trade story has never been in greater flux, from the Keystone pipeline to decades-old export restrictions; the rise of natural gas vehicles to the decline of coal-fired power plants; oil-train arbitrage to Jones Act tankers; Latin America fuel exports to U.S. biofuel policy; the shrinking role of Wall Street to the renewed rise of trading merchants. In an ever-changing landscape with prices and politics constantly shifting, traders and investors are more reliant than ever on smart journalism.

As editor-in-charge of energy market news in the Americas, the successful candidate will be expected to drive coverage on two parallel, interconnected tracks: breaking market-moving real-time news for professional traders ahead of the competition, from refinery glitches to pipeline spills to arbitrage trades; and also producing sophisticated, ahead-of-the-curve enterprise and investigative work that highlights emerging trends, analyzes major developments and tells a global financial audience about things that other people don’t want them to know.

The editor-in-charge will be expected to lead by example, producing outstanding work under their own byline while directing and developing the talents and skills of 10 specialist reporters in New York and another dozen or so across the region, helping them produce sharp, smart market stories for a global audience. Competing at both ends of the spectrum, from deep-specialist split-second spot news to agenda-setting multi-week enterprise, requires clear leadership, smart strategies and savvy news ideas. Above all, it requires a fierce determination to win.

Qualifications:
Drive, ambition and a passion for winning every part of the news cycle, from breaking alerts to deep enterprise
Proven ability to conceive and execute ahead-of-the-curve stories for a professional financial audience
Masterful editing skills to produce clear, sharp, sophisticated energy market copy, quickly
Track record of independently writing and reporting stories, from spot news to original analysis
Readiness to lead a large, diverse team through high standards, coaching and career development
Minimum five years of energy market news or industry experience

Tony Munroe

Reuters names new Korea bureau chief

by

Jean Yoon, regional editor for Asia for Reuters, sent out the following announcement on Tuesday:

I am delighted to announce that Tony Munroe has been appointed Bureau Chief, Korea, where he will oversee a multimedia news operation in Seoul that covers everything from the feudal regime in North Korea to global technology powerhouse Samsung.

Tony has spent most of his Reuters career in Asia and is currently bureau chief in Mumbai, where he has covered stories ranging from monetary policy to India’s nascent gaming industry to the mysterious Sahara conglomerate.

Before moving to India in 2009, Tony was based for nine years in Hong Kong, where he started as a technology correspondent, then headed the Greater China company news team before leading the Asia investment desk, where he launched the DEALTALK format. Throughout his time in Hong Kong, Tony covered the workings of multi-billionaire Li Ka-shing and his corporate empire.

A native of Washington, D.C., Tony joined Reuters in 1998 in Boston after working for newspapers. Outside of the newsroom, Tony enjoys reading and running — also known as avoiding Mumbai traffic — and is looking forward to hiking in the hills of Seoul with his two dogs. He will take on his new posting on June 2 and report to me.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank David Chance for his superb leadership and firm grasp of the key stories from two Koreas. We will miss his sharp news judgment and sense of humour.

Please join me in congratulating Tony on his new appointment and wishing David all the best in his new role as the economics editor for the Americas. David leaves for Washington in May.
