Role/Responsibilities

We are a successful, buy-side fixed-income fund manager looking for an experienced equities or credit analyst to work with our existing team of portfolio managers/analysts on bottom-up research of issuers and hybrid equity and debt securities issued by local and offshore companies and government entities into the Australian market.

The role is a senior analyst position that will require very detailed written analysis of the issuer's balance-sheet and financials to determine the outright valuation, relative valuation, and riskiness of a range of its securities across the capital structure spanning hybrid equity instruments to senior debts. These outputs will be directly inputted into the investment decision-making process and will likely be very influential on actions as a result.

The role is a demanding one reporting into the portfolio managers that will be subject to very tight deadlines and high expectations regarding the accuracy, quality and creativity of the work produced by the analyst.

The analyst must be able to work autonomously reviewing companies/state entities and their associated securities, be highly pro-active in reaching out to management teams when reviewing businesses, and display exceptional insight when determining valuations and quantifying upside and downside opportunities.

  • Extremely hard working
  • Extremely intelligent
  • Capable of meeting tight deadlines and working with high-performance and demanding superiors
