Prestigious asset manager seeks a high calibre individual with superior academics and significant counterparty credit analysis experience. In-depth knowledge of the banking sector is essential and exposure to credit research and analysis across other areas of financial services will be an advantage.
The successful candidate will demonstrate excellent analytical skills, a strong work ethic and the proven ability to engage and manage relationships with a wide range of stakeholders. A sound background in credit research and analysis relating to the international banking sector is pre-requisite.
The role is broad-ranging and will involve undertaking credit research and formulating opinion on bank counterparties, together with approval/denial of prospective counterparties and ongoing counterparty monitoring. This will involve analysing each firm and the wider sector in which they operate, to include country, sector, political, economic and market analysis. A good understanding of the asset management process is also strongly preferred.
The role will suit a confident, clear communicator with a high level of business acumen and a practical approach to problem solving.
