Bloomberg News is seeking a leveraged finance reporter to join its energetic credit team in New York.

You’d be covering the $1.4 trillion US leveraged loan market at a fascinating time, as businesses struggle to navigate higher funding costs and banks and private credit providers battle for market share. You will be joining a team of experienced journalists that cover some of the biggest debt markets in the world, and regularly produce well read stories on the Terminal and the web. You'll sit on a fast-paced team that breaks news on new loan sales across North America for Terminal clients, and would need to help chase down the details of new primary market deals quickly and accurately. A good understanding of corporate finance and debt issuance is paramount. The job includes frequent collaboration with reporters who cover related parts of leveraged finance, such as private credit markets and collateralized loan obligations.

We’ll trust you to:

  • Develop sources to generate intelligent, high-impact, market-moving scoops
  • Become proficient in analyzing deals and funding markets
  • Break news on the debt financing of leveraged deals in the US
  • Explain what it all means to the broader financial system
  • Cover the beat with enthusiasm, speed and accuracy
  • Talk about your stories on Bloomberg TV, Bloomberg Radio and Bloomberg QuickTake
  • Write insightful, thought-provoking stories that add value
  • Collaborate with colleagues across our more than 120 bureaus globally

You’ll need to have:

  • A minimum of four years experience in financial journalism or leveraged finance
  • Deep knowledge of leveraged loans, private credit and CLOs
  • Ability to write quickly and clearly under deadline pressure
  • Ability to generate exclusive, breaking news
