Financial Times

US Capital Markets Correspondent
The Financial Times is looking for two energetic and ambitious reporters to join the US markets team in New York to cover two of the most important asset classes on Wall Street: US equities and government debt. The openings come at a critical juncture for financial markets, with Treasuries in turmoil as the US gradually reopens and inflation worries grip investors, and equities in the middle of one of the most compelling David-vs-Golaith tales in the recent history of finance, as retail investors attack hedge funds on their own turf. 

The equities correspondent will lead our coverage of US stock and derivatives markets, a position that is among the most varied at the FT. It includes our coverage of high-profile initial public offerings, the shift to algorithmic-driven trading strategies and the Robinhood brigade who have begun to shape behaviour of the US stock market. The successful candidate 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 reporter will help cover the boom in listings of blank cheque companies by Wall Street power brokers, celebrities and Fortune 500 executives.
