Leveraged Finance Reporter

 

LevFin Insights, a Fitch Solutions Company, seeks a Leveraged Finance Reporter based out of our London office

 

LevFin Insights (LFI) provides news and commentary on the global leveraged finance markets to customers in banking, fund management, credit research and legal services. We cover bonds, loans, private credit, structured finance and special situations, and we’re looking for a reporter to cover European leveraged debt. You’ll be chasing news on primary issuance, digging into individual credits, uncovering emerging trends, turning data into stories, and more.

What We Offer:

  • An exciting and challenging segment of the financial world
  • Join a business that’s a highly-respected source of news and analysis for leveraged finance
  • Become part of an experienced team of reporters, who will help you build your expertise and support you in new challenges
  • Benefit from the resources that a large corporation like Fitch offers, but within a nimble and focused division where your voice will always be heard
  • Competitive pay, great benefits and a hybrid working pattern

 

We’ll Count On You To:

  • Nurture and build your source network to deliver exclusive, source-driven, real-time news
  • Spot market trends and write punchy insight pieces for a specialist audience
  • Collaborate with other reporters, and with complementary teams within Fitch Solutions, especially Covenant Review and CreditSights
  • Represent LFI at conferences and industry events 

 

What You Need To Have:

  • Demonstratable experience writing about credit, ideally leveraged finance or adjacent markets
  • A drive to break news in a fast-moving market
  • A clear understanding of what makes a great credit story, an appreciation of what makes markets tick, and curiosity about complex financing structures
  • Resilience and excellent inter-personal skills to build strong relationships with sources
  • Attention to detail, good time management, strong writing skills

 

What Would Make You Stand Out:

  • A track record of uncovering stories and scoops in a previous role
  • Expertise in high-yield and/or leveraged loan markets
  • Excellent sources to draw on across leveraged finance
  •
