Purpose of your role
We are looking for some seriously creative writers to produce long and short-form editorial on a range of investment topics. You will help us take Fidelity to the forefront of our clients’ minds with engaging articles, witty blogs, credible white papers - and even a snappy tweet or two (or ten). If you can tackle multi-media projects, all the better. All this for a variety of audiences around the world, primarily institutional and wholesale clients.
Conceive, research and write digital-friendly investment content for institutional and wholesale clients in Asia and beyond
Collaborate with London-based team members on global writing projects
Liaise with investment and distribution teams to really understand Fidelity’s thinking and our clients’ needs
Experience and Qualifications Required
This is a creative content role which requires excellent writing skills, backed up by a solid grasp of financial markets, as well as strong research and idea generation abilities. You’ll need a creative eye for conveying ideas powerfully across a range of media. We try to be professional and you should be, too - you’ll need to be credible when talking to our top investment talent. Many of our clients are financially sophisticated so you’ll need to be able to handle complex ideas but we prize people who excel in explaining difficult concepts with simple language.
Specifically, the candidate should have a mix of the following skills and experience:
A digital-first publishing approach and experience in writing for audiences online, with evidence of success
Excellent writing skills – the ability to research a topic in depth and produce clear and insightful copy to deadlines. Prior experience in financial journalism or investment communications is desirable, as is experience and evidence of writing long form pieces or white papers.
Strong research, idea generation and information-handling skills with the ability to grasp important themes and substantiate arguments with credible details and facts.
Creativity in producing thoughtful arguments, presented in an accessible way.
A deep understanding of investment, asset management and diverse client groups
Educated to degree level, perhaps with a CFA
Initiative and intellectual curiosity.
The confidence and credibility to work face-to-face with senior executives, portfolio managers and research analysts. The successful candidate will be expected to form strong relationships with the investment team to understand their areas of expertise in order to produce content that leads the industry.
Editorial is a new and expanding function at Fidelity, which is evolving quickly to meet the needs of our clients. We have a multidisciplinary team of writers and producers as well as the production team to run our two VR studios in London and Hong Kong. We work closely with our investment colleagues to find the best and most relevant ideas and which our distribution teams then help to engage with the right people across our 23 markets.
