As an Associate Director you would be expected to manage a complex portfolio of credits, participate in market research and thought leadership efforts, and mentor junior analysts.

  • Function as a sector resource on credits. Publish timely industry commentaries, and proficiently write sector reviews and thought leadership pieces. Develop and lead ideas on papers across a broad range of issues for publication in S&P journals and other publications.
  • Speak publically and represent the company at external industry events.
  • Ensure a risk aware culture including leading by example.
  • The person in this position will have the opportunity to increase our ability to efficiently and effectively serve our clients.
