    Power Finance & Risk (part of Euromoney Institutional Investor) is hiring an experienced, Spanish-speaking news reporter to cover Latin America’s fascinating, constantly evolving power finance industry.

     

    PFR is the most comprehensive source of news on power project finance and M&A in the Americas. Unlike others, we do not regurgitate what is reported elsewhere. Our intent is to produce news that is previously unknown, actionable, detailed, quick, correct and unambiguously superior to that of any competitor.

     

    Our reporters take a passionate interest in debt and equity investments in power generation, renewable energy, electric transmission, midstream gas infrastructure and cutting-edge technologies such as battery storage, as well as the power markets that underpin them and the people—developers, contractors, bankers, lawyers, investors and fund managers—that make it all happen.

     

    The reporter will also work closely with PFR’s sister publication, IJGlobal, the leading provider of news and data on infrastructure finance globally. PFR and IJGlobal are publications of Euromoney Institutional Investor, a London-based company with offices around the world.

    • Report and write at least 10 news articles per day, often more, depending on market activity.
    • Originate ideas for thematic/in-depth articles on a weekly basis as well as researching and writing them.
    • Communicate with market participants using all means at their disposal—primarily the telephone, but also face-to-face meetings, email and non-traditional communication tools—to generate story ideas.
    • Keep up to date with regulatory filings and other public sources of information regarding newsworthy transactions.
    • Understand the industries and markets covered by PFR and keep up with trends and developments in these fields, including emerging technologies, financial products, investment themes and regulatory/policy changes.
    • Represent the publication at industry events, including by moderating and presenting, in the U.S. and abroad.
    • Participate in commercial activities such as roundtables, awards events and the generation of sponsored content opportunities.

    Required experience:

    • Two years reporting and breaking news
    • Success building a list of sources for beat reporting

    Essential skills and characteristics:

    • Sophisticated telephone and face-to-face interview skills and manner
    • Tenacity in following up leads
    • Dexterity to juggle multiple, complex stories simultaneously
    • Excellent written English and a flair for crafting a compelling story
    • Good spoken Spanish
    • A genuine curiosity about financial and other markets, banks and investment firms and what they do
    • Ability to quickly decipher and digest complex financial information
    • A sharp mind, quick on the uptake
