The Role: Senior Reporter: China Financial News

S&P Global Market Intelligence seeks a business journalist with a passion for China's financial sector to join our Hong Kong news bureau.

We focus on the banking, fintech and insurance industries in the Asia-Pacific regions but our team is global, providing around-the-clock coverage of all the news that matters in the bank world: monetary policy decisions, bank regulations, M&A, fintech startups - we cover it all, and we do it with unmatched data that helps us drive stories beyond the headlines.

In this role, you will help shape our daily content about China by developing fresh story ideas and delivering sharp, concise content using in-house data sources. You will write news articles covering a range of topics, including M&A, capital markets activity and regulation. The ideal candidate will have foundational experience in business journalism, a deep curiosity to understand the financial sector and will thrive on collaboration with editors in our Hong Kong bureau, as well as journalists across our global news desk.

The Team: With a global newsroom of more than 350 reporters and editors across five continents, you will work daily with people from a wide variety of backgrounds. The Financial Institutions news team is a tightknit group working from several different bureaus. In this role, you will be part of a seasoned group of financial reporters covering breaking news and developing long-form stories.

The Impact: Our real-time, subscription-based global news service reaches an influential readership, including investment bankers, credit risk analysts, buy- and sell-side teams, and regulators. The news we provide is a critical part of S&P Global Market Intelligence's highly valued product offering.

We comb through regulatory filings, attend top industry events, and monitor market trends to bring readers the information they need to know. Our comprehensive and timely news gathering operation combined with our enterprise journalism creates a unique news source essential to any sector-focused professional.

What's in it for you: This is an ideal opportunity for a business reporter looking to expand their horizons and develop deep sector expertise. In the spirit of continuous learning, the newsroom also offers extensive training and other development support, such as a mentorship program, supporting our journalists as they develop a career path leveraging S&P Global Market Intelligence and other parts of S&P Global.
