European Energy M&A Reporter Job at Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC – in London
IJGlobal is the world’s leading provider of data and news on infrastructure finance. Unlike others, we don’t regurgitate what is reported elsewhere. We focus entirely on informing our readers of what they don’t already know. Our intent is that our news is unambiguously superior – previously unknown, actionable, detailed, quick and correct – to that of any competitor.
Our reporters are passionate about all or any of: the business of power generation, of bridges and roads, of wind turbines and solar panels; the process that takes them from conception through finance, and into construction; their later fate in the secondary market; and the developers, contractors, bankers, lawyers, investors and funds that make all this happen.
This is an exciting role in a vibrant sector – global infrastructure investment – tracking deployment of an interesting financing tool in support of the delivery of projects that range in scale from biomass projects in the north of England through to vast power plants in the Middle East, motorways across Texas, high-speed rail linking Kuala Lumpur to Singapore, offshore wind in the North Sea to solar power in Saudi Arabia.
