This is not your average investment writing role - my client offers their subscribers insight into genuine investable situations. They have a stable of newsletters, written by editors who have worked in the city or in financial journalism and use their experience to spot companies or trends that retail investors can benefit from.

What they are looking for is people who have insight, who can spot companies that might be on the rise or a growing trend or investment opportunity, like Crypto Currencies or the tech sector, that can deliver tangible returns for their readers. You must have a passion for investment and be full of ideas or have a method of spotting interesting trends.
