Houston, New York

Join our Commodity Markets and Finance division within our Commodities and Global Markets business as a Portfolio/Credit Senior Analyst.  Based in New York, this role involves collateral and deal management of a diverse portfolio of energy, agricultural, and metals loans and structured transactions.

The Portfolio Management Group (PMG) is charged with instilling confidence to all stakeholders in our ability to identify, analyze, and properly mitigate the risks facing the bank and our clients.  The PMG seeks to own the risk while working collaboratively with specialized teams.

In the Senior Analyst role, you will develop your career by working independently and as part of the deal team alongside the Senior Portfolio Managers and interacting with originators, credit risk, legal, and other members of the Macquarie Group in the deal formation, structuring, and approval phase of lending and structured trade transactions. Your responsibilities will include:

  • Analyzing clients’ financial, operational, and management strengths and weaknesses to identify potential capital, balance sheet, and reputation risks
  • Identifying credit issues or challenges and developing risk mitigation structures
  • Partnering with relationship teams to structure and propose new credit transactions as well as coordinate customer due diligence, documentation, and loan closing processes
  • Preparing annual reviews and underwriting memos with analysis of a company's financial metrics, key risk factors, repayment sources, cash flow, and ability to service debt
  • Monitoring of compliance - both financial and reporting - and borrowing base validation on a portfolio of clients
  • Maintaining direct and continuous communication with Macquarie’s customers and other external parties.

Other responsibilities will include obtaining and analyzing relevant financial information, managing loan administration aspects, and providing regular portfolio reporting to senior management.

The Senior Analyst role is designed for rapid career development.  Over 24-36 months, you will be exposed to all aspects of commodity finance transactions and clients with the expectation of development and refinement of your credit skills.  Formal and informal trainings will take place to deepen your understanding of general concepts as well as specific functional tasks.

To be successful in this role you will have:

  • Major in finance, economics, accounting or other quantitative disciplines
  • Minimum five years of Commercial or Corporate Banking experience with credit training providing an understanding of banking and risk-related issues
  • Experience with commodities
  • Experience in the energy, agricultural and metals sectors is a plus
