About New Financial:

New Financial has already built a strong reputation as an independent authority on capital markets with policymakers and industry leaders across Europe.

Our work has been widely covered in the media including the FT, The Economist, the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg and Reuters.

We are a small team of two partners, four researchers and three support staff. The Events Manager will be given substantive research work to do from day one.
