Senior Credit Analyst - Direct Investments

Location: London, England, United Kingdom

Salary: £6 Figure Base + Bonus up to 100%

My client manages an £8Bn Direct Investments fund and has ambitious plans to grow this to £15Bn over the next 3 years.

They are looking for a highly experienced credit officer with a diverse sector background to join their rapidly expanding team. The ideal candidate will have experience of the following sectors:

  • Project & Infrastructure Finance
  • Commercial Property / Real Estate

You also need to have detailed understanding of Ratings methodology, so some time spent in a Ratings agency is highly desirable. 

They are open to considering candidates from a Ratings Advisory Group, Credit Risk, Credit Portfolio Management, Direct Investments or Rating Agency background.

If you have only ever worked for a Rating Agency and have no transactional experience, my client is willing to consider you if you are able to demonstrate that you have covered some of the more complex credits in the Infrastructure Finance space.

Alongside knowlege of rating methodology you also need to be very familiar with loan documentation.

The role is an end to end credit role where you will get the opportunity to help shape the deal, conduct financial analysis and sensitivity modelling (models are provided), prepare credit papers, present to credit committee and manage credit risk.

These are long term, buy and hold investments, so they aren't looking for someone from a trading background. The portfolio is Investment Grade, so if you've only worked in distressed or special situations this role isn't going to be suitable.
