A top American Investment Bank is looking to hire a VP-level candidate to their Corporate Lending Credit Risk team with a focus on Leveraged Lending. The bank has a reputation for running lean, so the front office and credit risk groups work very closely together. At a high level, the corporate lending credit risk team is accountable for evaluating the credit risk involved with certain transactions, and ultimately approves, rejects, or modifies them based on client's overall risk profile. They will also assign internal credit ratings to quantify risk, establish credit risk limits, and monitor credit risk exposures.
The bank is looking for an experienced candidate who has direct credit risk experience within leveraged lending. They are very open minded on the industry coverage. This individual will be accountable for mentoring and guiding the junior analysts in the team, so effective communication skills and the desire to take on more leadership responsibility will be important.
