The Senior Editor will play a crucial role in contributing to, editing, and managing the production of various Insights services, as well as representing the company at client events. You will be a crucial contributor to the production of Broadridge's high-quality, dependable and authoritative B2B insights reports on the European retail-fund industry. This position is well suited to someone who is looking to apply their highly developed editing and writing skills to the continuance and improvement of our existing product suite, while also deploying and expanding their knowledge of Europe's asset-management landscape and interacting with clients of varying levels of seniority.
You will have an accomplished and consistent record of writing and editing business journalism or market-intelligence reports, ideally relating to asset management or the wider financial-services industry. An integral element of this role is to steward the production of a comprehensive and widely read monthly report on European and cross-border fund sales, writing headline analysis and summaries, and ensuring that the writing team is clearly briefed, their copy is edited into house style (and rendered in native English if written by a non-native writer), and that the report is completed and distributed to a set deadline.
Beyond this core task, the Senior Editor will also be heavily involved in the writing and editing of other insights reports, on topics such as product development and the distribution landscape, while also contributing to a rolling content programme of blogs, webcasts and podcasts.
You will be comfortable presenting to audiences of different sizes, either by phone or at meetings/conferences, usually consisting of managerial, sales, marketing, branding, product-development, and strategy professionals at asset-management firms.
