  • Write stories that are accurate, fast (we don’t report yesterday’s news), and are fair (every story has two sides)
  • Have the news judgment to differentiate between news that can make or break a company and PR speak – and be able to prioritize news, analysis and views for an investment audience
  • Have the ability to network and develop sources and contacts– you will be talking to CEOs, PR folks, analysts at top broker houses
  • Spot trends that can be written into big picture stories like features or analysis
  • Be able to rewrite headlines, news leads and captions to suit audience requirements
  • Have a strong interest and expertise in monitoring international news wires and other outlets, including social media.
