Credit Analyst (Autos & Transportation)

We are working with a leading global bank that is looking to hire a Credit Analyst (3-7 years’ experience) to join their successful Credit Research team in Paris.

The selected candidate will be responsible for undertaking Credit Research covering a range of names within Transportation, Automotives and Logistics, with a primary focus on European (EUR) names. The role covers both IG and HY names and overall coverage universe will include around 10 names. Prior experience covering Automotives & Transportation is required for this role, however there is flexibility towards additional sub-sector coverage (Infrastructure, Motorways, Airports, Airlines etc.) which will also depend on prior experience.

In addition to researching & analysing individual names, the Credit Analyst will be responsible for writing and publishing thematic flagship research pieces both for internal and external clients, identifying overarching industry trends impacting the medium to long-term investment universe, as well as publishing shorter-term or ad hoc/opportunistic industry research papers.

There is a 50/50 split in this role between covering credit analysis on individual names and publishing research pieces, and a close working relationship with other teams within the firm across Sales & Trading, as well as DCM.

One of the key selling points of this role is extensive client-facing responsibility, through attendance of roadshows as well as client meetings, combined with an excellent opportunity to extensively broaden sub-sector & industry knowledge by being responsible for identifying investment trends and writing in-depth research, making this an ideal role for a candidate looking for a role with high visibility who is looking to expand their industry & sector expertise. The team has an excellent and highly collegial working culture and offers the opportunity for flexible work.

Experience and confidence in clearly articulating views on particular issuers within the sector and having conviction in those views is also strongly preferred.

In terms of background, our client is open to considering strong candidates from rating agencies, independent research providers, buy-side, as well as sell-side (provided Transportation as a sector has been covered).

  • Undertake credit research and analysis covering Automotive and Transportation and sub-sectors with primary coverage of issuers from the European Market
  • Identifying overarching investment trends (eg. Evolution in car batteries, electric vehicle trends etc) and translating these into high caliber, in-depth, thematic & topical ad hoc flagship research pieces
  • Focus will be strongly focused towards IG, as well as a few potential HY issuers 
  • Utilise quantitative and qualitative framework to assess credit and fundamental metrics and provide a detailed understanding of all relevant indicators across the sector

Experience Required:
