On a day to day basis and as part of a close knit team you would be expected to cover the following:
Provide sound and independent written credit opinion on financial institutions acting as counterparties
Perform credit due diligence, analysis and ratings on a portfolio of new and existing Bank and non-Bank counterparties,
Interact with clients, Fund Managers, trading desks, operations on transaction approvals,
Negotiate credit documents and collateral terms with the Legal department and other external parties,
Contribute to the development and testing of credit rating, macro-economic and market-condition models,
Prepare material for Derivatives and Credit Oversight Committees, including credit memos on specific counterparties, presentation of monthly global exposures,
Assist in the development of existing policies and procedures, quantitative models and current practices.
This role would suit either someone in a similar junior well supervised role who is looking to develop their responsibility levels further or someone from a banking or ratings environment currently looking for their first buy -side opportunity.
