It comes as Agri Investor is poised to expand its coverage – which includes farmland, timberland, agriculture and food technology, food processing, storage, water and all agribusinesses in the value chain – deeper into the agribusiness sector.
Our editorial staff connect deeply with the markets they cover, delivering expert news, analysis and information not available elsewhere. It’s not enough for our journalists to simply report what happens; they must be able analyse how and why news matters for our discerning, high-level audience that comprises the world’s most influential institutional investors, leading fund managers and advisors.
We are looking for ambitious individuals seeking to advance their career in one of the most dynamic segments of global finance by joining a growing, global media company, with offices in London, New York, Hong Kong and Sydney.

The individual should also be a gifted networker, willing and able to travel, attend industry-related events and moderate panels at internal and external events; engaging constantly with the markets we cover is a core requirement.
