A leading asset manager is looking to hire a HY/stressed credit analyst (3-6 years' exp) with a strong understanding of (or interest in) macroeconomics, as the team uses both a top-down and bottom-up approach.

The role would be working with the firm's macro credit fund, which can invest globally across the whole credit spectrum (including corporates and sovereigns) in single-B and below names across Europe, EM and US.

The ideal candidate:

  • Someone who has helped to deploy capital, size positions etc. across previous special situations
  • Someone with experience across HY/stressed/special situations within corporate and sovereign credit
  • Someone with a successful of track record of idea generation across the HY/stressed credit space
  • Good understanding of (or strong interest in) macroeconomics, EM, country risk, peripheral Europe, macro-driven special situations (e.g. Turkey, Brazil, Argentina) etc.
  • Experience outside Europe would be a plus (eg. EM or US HY markets)
  • Previous experience on a sell-side HY trading or distressed desk would be a plus, however not a requirement
