The Wall Street Journal is looking for an experienced reporter fluent in Mandarin and markets to cover the twists and turns of China’s stocks, bonds and currency. We want someone who can get ahead of the forces driving significant changes in Chinese asset prices and put them in a global context.
You will have plenty of opportunity to break news and write insightfully about the collision between the tide of Western investment in China's highly valued new companies and a series of government crackdowns aimed at bringing sector after sector into line with state priorities. We will expect you to deliver fast, analytical reports when markets move, as well as deep dives and high-profile enterprise features that illuminate important trends.
You will need to be able to source deeply with traders and money managers, see the people as well as the money, and find the winners and losers when markets convulse. We're looking for someone who can find compelling characters, from star hedge fund managers to euphoric retail traders, to bring stories to life.
You should submit a cover letter describing how you would approach this job, a detailed resume, and five clips with explanations about what the stories show about your capabilities. This job can be based in Hong Kong or Singapore, and reports to the Journal’s Asia Markets Editor.
