We are working with a large, global investor and asset manager which is looking to expand its coverage of the structured credit markets by adding a senior professional to its team in London. The group has an interest in a variety of structured credit transactions - CLOs, capital risk trades, synthetic risk transfers, asset backed lending etc - and is keen to bring someone on board who has a strong understanding of, and exposure to, transactions in this space.
You'll be responsible for the origination of new transaction flow within these structured credit verticals - building relationships with brokers and intermediaries as well as other funds who could filter additional deal flow into the group
You will take ownership of the deal evaluation and execution process, with the support of junior team members both in the UK and the US
You will have responsibility for post-deal portfolio management and monitoring to ensure the ongoing strong performance of all new and previously made investments
In-depth understanding of the structure credit space with a particular preference for exposure to CLOs, capital risk trades or asset backed lending - other forms of structured credit are relevant, but a heavy real assets exposure is less appropriate for the role
You must have previous investment experience - this would ideally have involved investing into CLO managers at the junior/equity tranche of the capital stack; unfortunately, candidates without investment experience will not be considered
Additional European languages are of particular interest
