-Identify and interpret broader trends in U.S. Treasuries but also corporate bond and mortgage markets, drawing upon expertise from reporters across teams and helping generate broader, thematic stories

You'll need to have:
-Strong writing skills and ability to make new contacts and develop sources
-Broad contacts in the fixed income buyside and sell-side community
-Experience reporting on markets in general or in a comparable industry role (strategist/analyst/trader)

We'll trust you to:

-- Deliver accurate and sharp stories under tight deadlines
-- Generate analysis covering both fast-paced developments in short format and long-term trends and insights, that don't just focus on the ``what happened'' but also on the ``why'' and ``so what''

-- Collaborate with reporters across the newsroom and the Finance teams worldwide

You’ll need to have:
