Credit Strategy Analyst Internship in London

Credit Strategy Analyst Internship

Job description

Job summary

Key Responsibilities:

The VIE will be working directly with the Credit Strategist and will have a varied workload. The main responsibilities will lie with helping with research publications. On the credit strategy side these include daily, weekly, thematic and year-end publications. Some of the assistance will be in the form of written research but this will be gradual as it takes times to build up market knowledge. The VIE will initially be expected to take control of data management as we use dozens of spreadsheets which will need to be updated through a variety of data sources: these include Bloomberg, CreditLab (our internal spread database), Dealogic, IGM, DTCC, rating agencies and the internet. The focus will be on keeping the data current so it can be used in presentations and publications with ease, with a long-term goal of automating as much of the data processes as possible. The data is also used internally by sales, trading, DCM and syndicate so it is important to update it frequently. Another target will be to build and maintain a CDS database from DTCC data. In addition there will be some adhoc projects where we will look to build some statistical/quantitative models where needed.

Legal and Regulatory Responsibilities:

  • Comply with all applicable legal, regulatory and internal Compliance requirements, including, but not limited to, the London Compliance manual and Compliance policies and procedures as issued from time to time; Financial Security requirements, including, but not limited to, the prevention of Financial Crime and Fraud including reporting obligations to the Money Laundering Reporting Officer.
  • Maintain appropriate knowledge to ensure to be fully qualified to undertake the role. Complete all mandatory training as required to attain and maintain competence.
  • Key Internal contacts: 

  • Most of the contact will be within the credit research teams in Paris as well as the credit trading team. However, there will be regular contact with sales/origination/syndicate to help with their queries.

  • Supporting credit strategy will require a broad skills set but crucially the candidate will need to be flexible, a quick learner, analyse and understand data, have the ability to write coherently and logically, and have a real desire to gain some broad-based market knowledge.
  • Position localisation
