We are working with a Switzerland-based boutique asset manager that is looking to expand the team with a Credit Analyst covering Financials.
A minimum of 5-7 years' experience in fundamental credit research or credit portfolio management capacity, covering Financials (Banks a must, Insurers a plus) is a hard requirement for this role.
The firm covers global total return strategies across all asset classes, including fixed income, equity, and multi-asset.
About the Team
Our fixed income team adheres to a total return mindset (no benchmarks) and invests globally across the capital structure using both derivatives (rates, credit, options) and cash bonds.
The team currently comprises a portfolio manager (head of the team), two corporate credit analysts, and a quantitative macro strategist. Additionally, there is a five-member equity team covering global equities.
About the Role
Our client, a highly successful boutique asset manager, is expanding their team with a Financials Research Analyst to join the growing fixed income business.
The ideal candidate must have a strong background covering Financials (Banks are a must, Insurance is a plus) and ideally a proven track record of providing trade idea recommendations in previous roles.
Prior experience covering Emerging Markets Financials is a plus, as well as any quantitative capabilities (Python).
The selected candidate will have the opportunity to shape the firm's financials research framework and gain experience in managing global unconstrained fixed income portfolios. A strong understanding of macroeconomic drivers (growth, inflation, and monetary policy) is a plus.
There is potential for rapid advancement into a portfolio manager role.
