Trainee News Reporter:
IJGlobal is the world’s leading provider of data and news on infrastructure finance. Unlike others we don’t regurgitate what is reported elsewhere. We focus entirely on informing our readers of what they don’t already know. Our intent is that our news is unambiguously superior – previously unknown, actionable, detailed, quick and correct -- to that of any competitor.
Our reporters are passionate about all or any of: the business of power generation, of bridges and roads, of wind turbines and solar panels; the process that takes them from conception through finance, and into construction; their later fate in the secondary market; and the developers, contractors, bankers, lawyers, investors and funds that make all this happen.
