Private Credit Reporter – Debtwire Europe

ION Analytics, Full-time, London
This role has been filled
The Role:

Debtwire, an ION Analytics company and the leading provider of news and analysis for the global fixed income markets, is seeking a reporter to cover the European private credit market. Debtwire provides sophisticated investors and advisors with deep-dive coverage of public and private companies, with an emphasis on high-yield bonds, leveraged loans and private credit, from new issuance through stress, distress and restructuring.
The Reporter role is focused on breaking news on companies in need of private credit for M&A, refinancing and organic growth.

  • Reporting, writing, and filing copy on a daily basis
  • Writing in-depth, substantive articles
  • Contributing to special projects such as conferences, databases, webinars and podcasts
  • Assisting with developing coverage outside of assigned beats
  • Cultivating and meeting with sources
  • In-region travel as necessary

Required Skills, Qualifications and Experience:

  • At least two years’ experience covering debt markets
  • Private credit and/or leveraged loans reporting experience a plus
  • Knowledge and experience reporting on mergers and acquisitions a plus
  • Strong writing skills and an investigative mindset
