This role requires an FI credit analyst with excellent analytical skills and, ideally, fluency in French as the focus is very much on Francophone Africa. You will also have experience in structuring and mitigating risk in what are often complex transactions.
You will be required to prepare complete credit applications and to work closely with colleagues in front office as well as across the credit team and to be able to discuss key material risks and provide a recommendation to senior management.
Whilst the role will focus mainly on Financial Institutions, there will also be some exposure to corporate credit and some real estate finance, however, these are secondary to the main element of the role which is to look at Emerging Markets Banks.
Prior experience of Emerging Markets is preferable, but not mandatory. Credit Analysis of Financial Institutions is essential.
