The Financial Times US markets team is looking for an energetic and ambitious reporter to fill a four-month vacancy in New York covering the nearly $40tn Wall Street equities market. The role forms a critical part of our Wall Street coverage as the acting US equities market routinely sets the tone for global financial markets. The job is among the most varied in New York. It includes our coverage of high-profile initial public offerings, the shift to algorithmic-driven trading strategies and the retail investors who have helped sway the pandemic-era equity and derivative markets. The reporter will be asked to identify the key issues facing investors as they put their money to work and to offer insight on market gyrations. The increasing market concentration in large, mostly technology-based stocks and the continued shift to passive trading strategies are among the big themes that have come to dominate the beat.
