Frankfurt Finance Correspondent
Frankfurt is the continent's financial capital, and in the world after Brexit it will stake a claim to being all of Europe's. The Finance Correspondent in Frankfurt will be our chief reporter covering the financial side of the city. The beat offers a wide berth: Frankfurt is a locus for M&A bankers, so the reporter will play a role on our world-beating deals team. It is the home of several important securities exchanges, so the reporter will be a vital part of the markets team. It co-hosts BaFin, one of Europe's most important financial regulators. Gossip, news and rumor whip around Frankfurt, so the reporter will be our ears on the ground. The Frankfurt-based European Central Bank is consolidating much of Europe's banking supervision, so the reporter will dive into the swarm of lawyers and bankers angling to shape how that new world looks. Most importantly, the Frankfurt Finance Correspondent will chronicle the brewing fight over where Europe's finance industry will settle after Brexit. This is an opportunity to have a key perch in the most important European finance story of the coming years. The tussles are starting already--Deutsche Borse and LSE is one--and many more will follow.
