Fastmarkets is a central part of FTSE-250 listed Euromoney Institutional Investor Plc, and is at the centre of its strategic development. The company has been benchmarking commodity prices since 1882 and aims to provide the world’s leading and most trusted price reporting and intelligence service for the markets it covers, including metal and mining and forestry products. The group’s global portfolio of news, analysis, conferences and insight services complement its price benchmarks.
Fastmarkets is looking for a price reporter to cover the base metals markets and work within a team of six reporters, who are based in London but who are part of a global team. The role is focused on pricing physical premiums for markets such as aluminium and producing market reports, breaking news, interviews and in-depth features on these markets. He/she will report to the European base metals editor, and work closely with colleagues in London, Chicago, New York, Shanghai, Singapore and Sao Paolo.
Scope and Impact
The price reporter sits at the heart of Fastmarkets’ Price Reporting Agency (PRA) strategy and operates within a global network of highly skilled reporters and dedicated resources that offer training, ensure data integrity and enforces strict pricing procedures in line with IOSCO principles. The base metals team produces around 200 prices globally including nearly 50 benchmarks used by the physical industry to buy and sell metal. There is scope to review, launch and promote prices and opportunities to travel and engage with market participants.
