Credit Analyst - Insurance

This long-standing Lloyds & London Market Insurer who are part of a large international insurer is looking to appoint a Credit Analyst into their Political & Credit Risk Insurance team. This role would lead the credit review & portfolio management process associated with the underwriting of credit & political risk insurance.

Your initial role will be to review existing credit policy and procedures including rating models, develop the credit file database, ensure fit for purpose risk models, review credit limits and monitor exposures for existing clients.

Beyond this, you will be responsible for helping guide the underwriters in making prudent underwriting decisions for new insurance policies. There is a great deal of variety to the territories, tenors and types of risk that would be insured and thus your role would have a broad scope. This would really be a challenging and varied role which spans credit risk, country risk, portfolio management and deal structure.


To be considered for this role you must have;-

· Broad experience and understanding of Trade Finance structures used within Investment Banks, especially those lending to a broad range of territories you will also have knowledge of Project and Asset Finance structures.

· Experience in working for a major team within a large Investment Bank, Commodity Trading House or Political Risk Insurance team

· Experience in both credit and country analysis, with a focus around a range of market corporates / sovereigns rather than specific areas. Some knowledge of Political / Credit Risk Insurance as a capital relief / risk sharing solution would be ideal but not essential.

· Your experience should be primarily, or largely within medium - long term debt instruments including Trade Finance, Project Finance, Aviation Finance, Structured Credit, Oil & Gas Lending, etc.
