London, UK
Posted on Thursday, February 1, 2024

Debt is the world's largest asset class, and it operates with the worst technology: trillions of dollars of trades are placed over the phone, news is slow, and information is scattered.

Our mission is to change this. 9fin's proprietary technology delivers fast and comprehensive news, data, and analysis on all aspects of corporate debt, from company financials through to credit analysis, legal documentation and ESG.

We enable our clients to make faster and better-informed decisions, helping them win more business and save time. Our fast-growing list of clients include 9 of the top 10 investment banks, as well as leading asset managers, hedge funds and law firms.

The opportunity

9fin is seeking a senior reporter to join our European team covering the distressed debt and restructuring market.

We’re looking for an experienced journalist with an existing source-base and a track record of breaking news, who will relish the opportunity to delve into all of the fascinating stories as the new UK insolvency regime and EU Directive on restructuring are tested across the continent.

If you can follow this fast-paced market while maintaining best-in-class editorial standards and collaborating with our team of reporters, analysts, and lawyers, we want to work with you.

What you'll work on

Every day is different, but here’s an example of the kind of things you’ll work on:

  • Breaking news — You’ll be part of team that regularly breaks stories on what’s going on in distressed debt, from deteriorating company earnings all the way through to messy out-of-court restructurings
  • Feature-writing — You’ll know how to write longer-form articles that connect the dots between daily news and broader market trends
  • Generating ideas — You’ll provide a consistent stream of new ideas, whether that’s identifying new situations to cover, or thinking up new ways to cover them
  • Monitoring markets — You’ll learn to harness our technology to identify new opportunities, ensuring that 9fin’s coverage of the distressed market is timely and comprehensive
